I've been mentally struggling a few weeks.
It's been hard going.
I find it difficult to find the right words to explain.
I'm not struggling with food, I've been fully on my plan and no nibbling, no sliding, no letting myself down.
I'm not struggling with exercise, I'm doing what I have planned.
I'm not struggling with weight loss. I can feel it's still losing, more slowly than earlier but I can feel progress and I'm happy enough with it although of course I want to lose more all the time.
It's more of an inner struggle, a mental struggle
Some months I have been eating right, exercising right and losing and it feels like I'm walking on clouds. I've been so happy inside, so pleased with what I am doing and with me. So HAPPY.
Recently, I'm still delighted with the life changes I have made, and satisfied I am doing the right things, but dragging myself through each day feels so hard. So HARD.
The only thing I can use to understand it is that, as I am coming towards the end phase of this weight loss, Its like the end of a long race and it feels harder than the early days did. It's all in the mind.
However, I will keep right on going, keep right on eating right, exercising right and working hard. I tell myself if this feels hard now, just imagine what it would feel like if you were letting yourself down.
I'm reminded of the old saying, dieting is hard, being fat is hard, choose your hard.
Has anyone any tips to turn hard back to happy?
Well Jury duty is done and gone..Yeah!
