Still Going Strong!

Well, I am not entirely on track in terms of my work out schedule, but we are here to celebrate wins.

I thought I will return here to write when I would be feeling weak or feeling like giving up. That hasn’t happened yet. But what has happened is that I’ve managed to curb my appetite and cravings slightly and add a little bit of physical activity to my daily tasks.

I know that does not sound like much, but such small steps are what helped me lose weight earlier as well. And, they are working too!

Like, sure I am still far away from my dream weight, but I am back to being at a healthy BMI, my clothes are fitting me much better, and I can see a difference in my body.

It’s such a great feeling when your fitness initiatives get back on track.

Having gained a lot of weight in the past and having lost it as well has led to two things.

  1. It has made me very proud of my body and finally helped me have a good relationship with it.
  2. It has made me realize how difficult it is to lose weight as opposed to maintaining it.

The first has made me value what I have in terms of health and fitness more. But it’s the second one that ensures that I get back on track. In fact, that’s part of the reason I have been able to stay focused on adopting better habits. I now know how ridiculously difficult it is to lose weight, so this time around I was able to identify my wrong patterns much quicker and immediately get on course-correction mode.

Of course there’s still miles to go. When I work out, I do work out well, but so far I am failing miserably to add work outs/skipping/dance into my daily routine. And the biggest road block to my fitness journey is my inability to wake up on time. That’s a long battle, but it is the sole reason why I am unable to make time for daily work outs.

I guess that’s why I wanted to come here and think out loud. I know in my head what’s working, what’s not, and what I am supposed to do. But the thought is not translating to action.

This is a reminder to myself that I have done it in the past and I can do it again. Imagine if I am already witnessing noticeable difference in just 2 weeks, what brilliant results can I achieve if I really get down to grind!

I can do this. And I will do this!

Until next time! 🙂
