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.
- It has made me very proud of my body and finally helped me have a good relationship with it.
- 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! 🙂
