Debby Downer

Losing weight is hard, ya’ll.
There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t think about my weight.
I have been struggling for years.
I started my own challenge to lose twenty-eight pounds by my twenty-eighth birthday.
I was weighing in every Friday.
Have you noticed I stopped?
I was hoping you hadn’t.
The scale hasn’t gone down at all.
In fact, it went up point two pounds.
I want to be honest with you all but it’s hard for me to announce every Friday that I’ve failed, once again. 
I constantly feel like I'm doing something wrong and I'm always on a mission to try and figure it out. 
I work out on a regular basis.
I eat very well, especially when comparing myself to Heather in 2010.
So why do I still feel the need to avoid the scale like the plague?
I always want to be honest with you all. 
So when I have thoughts like these, I feel the need to share them.
What's next for me?
I'm going to keep going.
Even when I've reached my goal I will continue to make new ones and I will work towards those. 
I'm not giving up.
I will never quit.
I just need to let Debby Downer speak her mind every now and then.

  1. The fact that you share this with us shows how far you've come. This is not failure. You're lifting weights. Expecting the scale to go down is expecting a miracle. Adjust the goal, if you need to. You are as healthy and physically fit as you have ever been in your life! That is success.

  2. Hey girl! I love how real this post is!! I have enjoyed following and been inspired by your instagram account...this is the first time I have checked out your blog and it's great. It is so hard not to get discouraged and give up when there are setbacks on our health journeys. When I am having a rough time {and want to dive face first into a pizza since I am not losing weight anyway ;)} I look back at old pics and see how far I have already come. It gives me the determination to not give up and keep going! You have made incredible progress and look amazing!! Thanks for sharing about how not every week {or couple weeks} goes how we want! xo
