I did the gym 3 times last week....
Today I was at the gym again...Day two of five planned for this week.
I have been pushing like I used to..
I remember this...
It's not really pain, but it is hard.
You don't want to finish.
Luckily I seem to have entered that nirvana type phase I had when I began this whole journey when food just didn't matter.
I have to say, You go through ups and downs regarding food.
At least I do.
Sometimes I can simply leave it..
Other times it feels nearly impossible.
I entered a one year period starting last year where I seemed to be hungry all the time.
It was quite a struggle.
I can't explain it any other way.
But now that I seem to have emerged out the other side....having held my ground and ready to continue..
I can tell you how happy I am that I did not regain all my weight.
Sometimes it hurts and is hard.
But it is worth it.
Sometimes it feels endless and unnatural...
But if you can keep going it is worth it.
I realize that many of you are on the other side of that wall.
On the side your on...all you can see is endless obstacles...and pain, and work without reward.
maybe you are still fat...you work daily, and you are losing, but have not gotten over the hump where it feels more natural.
Maybe you are still recieving comments or negative feedback.
And you have come to a decision point...continue to your goal or slide back into what you know, what is comfortable.
The problem is, you have never experienced the other side of that wall...
So you don't really know what it is you are shooting for.
So you wonder if it is worth it...
Some of you have climbed over, realized weight loss didn't solve all your problems, and maybe have climbed back over and NOW realize why you climbed the wall in the first place..
It wasn't that weight loss made your life magically different.
It simply made living it a whole lot easier.
Easier to breathe and to be, you had more energy, you were the person you imagined.
And now you are facing the daunting wall climb again and wonder if you can.
It is worth the struggle and the pain.
It is scary not knowing.
But trust me.
The other side of that wall is better.
