Nervous to Get Restarted
Thursday, April 20, 2017
For the last three months, my efforts to lose weight have been put on hold and turned into more of a holding pattern. I got married on April 1st, and, for the sake of getting the dress altered to fit for the day, I had to maintain a stable weight once the seamstress started cutting fabric.
Now the wedding is done. I kept saying I would get going again after that point, but finding the motivation to do so almost feels as difficult as it was to start the first time. I haven't been to the gym in months. I've let my eating habits drift back a little, though not too much. I also need to pick my next goal weight. I had set out to lose 40 as my first benchmark, and I'm at 37 pounds down.
I am setting a plan of officially restarting as of Monday, but I am still nervous. My motivation is shaky and my future plans are unclear. On the bright side, I have continued to at least partially track my food each day consistently. My husband is super supportive, and we have a gym date set for Tuesday. I did it once, so I know I can do it again.
