I’m very excited about this new chapter in my life that I have embarked on. The sad thing is, I don’t really have anyone in my life that I can share it with. My hubs — God bless his heart — doesn’t really understand because he’s not doing it with me. He is incredibly supportive in his own way and I think sort of expects me to be his inspiration leader. A role I gladly accept as his forever partner. The rest of my family (mom, dad, brothers, etc.) roots for me but they don’t really understand either. They are, however, very encouraging and positive. For that, I am so grateful.
I’ve come to point in this, where all I think about is… well… this. I want to understand it. I want to wrap myself up in it until I get to where I need and want to be. I’m feeling good — no — great because of the changes I have been making! Yet, there are days when I get frustrated with the scale or just frustrated in general. I know on some level, I am doing everything right; counting calories and not going over my daily allotment, exercising every day, making better choices for meals and snacks, no more late-night snacking. I mean, it all adds up, right? Eventually, I will be losing the 2lbs a week that I am striving for, right?
Yet, I want to find people who are doing the same thing I am. I want to know their struggles and encourage them and I want them to know mine and to encourage me when I feel like i’m going to fall. Recently, I found the My Fitness Pal community. I’ve joined a few groups and a few threads. I’m hoping to find where I fit in. I’ve also found some inspirational blogs that I read to keep up the inspiration. This is me trying to find my weight loss community.
Do you have a weight loss community?
