long obedience in the same direction
I'm sitting here trying to keep in mind the quote my WW leader has been quoting to us. "Long obedience in the same direction", meaning stick with the program, eat in your pts range, exercise and keep on doing it in tough times and in good times. It's tough though. After seeing a 4 lb. loss last week this week with eating less, I've gained .2lbs. I'm trying not to sweat it and just keep plugging along and have patience! But I'm feeling pissed that I do all the right things, journal my food, exercise 4 plus times a weeks and no loss! I get that feeling, what's the use, I bypassed all the pizza, fat good, desserts, mocha drinks and stayed the course and didn't get rewarded. Whaaaahhh! Ok, quit feeling sorry for myself, dust myself off and keep going. Maybe it's just the first of many plateaus I will exerperience. Quitting is not a option this time, keep on going to WW till I die is the mantra in my class! I know what quitting will entail which I've done many times in the last 15 years. It will mean a yo yo back up in wt and I will lose all the progress I've made. Not gonna do it!! I would love to have this wt just fall off but the reality is it's darn hard work and averageing 1-2 lbs a week is what will happen so I'll deal with it!! Really thinking of upping the exercise and starting running but it's hard on these old bones but know it might speed up the progress. Good luck to everyone on this same journey out there.
