I'm going to be honest with you all. I've been having a really hard time with my weight loss. When the scale doesn't move, I'm less motivated to eat well and exercise. And the scale won't move if I don't eat well and exercise. It's a VICIOUS cycle. I know my problem is mostly with portion sizes right now. I've gotten back into the habit of eating until I'm uncomfortably full.

Does anyone have this problem?!

I think what I struggle the most with is my boyfriend can eat pretty much whatever he wants and he stays in very good shape. I, on the other hand, can not. We’ve been eating out a lot. When we moved to Palm Desert I originally said I was so excited to have time to cook more. Well, all that extra time I thought I’d have has been dedicated to working and unpacking and running errands and getting a workout in here or there. Eating out has no affect on my boyfriend. I’m pretty sure he hasn’t gained a pound. Me? Well, I just feel puffy and gross.

AND I think a major problem for me is when I go grocery shopping, I don’t go in with a plan. I end up grabbing produce, eggs, almond milk, yogurt for my boyfriend and maybe a snack or two. When it comes time to cook dinner I realize I bought NOTHING to cook dinner with. I really need to start planning what we are going to cook through out the week and then go into the grocery store with a list.

It’s 4am and I have been wide awake since 2. I finally got out of bed and decided to write down all of my feelings. No sense in keeping them inside. That’s what my blog is for!!! So all you nice people can read the little things running through my head.

I’m going to commit to trying harder. I remember how good it felt when I first lost the weight. I want to feel that way again. And I know I can feel that way again.

I’ll leave you all with a #throwbackthursday. The photo on the left was taken in the summer of 2010 right before I started my weight loss journey. Even though I am not where I want to be I can see a huge difference in myself and I have to proud of that.
I am going to attempt to get some sleep now.
