Maintenance is daunting to me, I don't know why. I tackled losing the weight with excitement and I felt so empowered to have found the Belly Fat Cure as a solution to my obesity. Some mornings I'd even wake up early just to weigh myself, then jump back in bed feeling thrilled at the result.
But maintenance scares me, to be honest. For me, it is a different animal all together. Can I do this? Do I have the strength to not give in to my food demons for the rest of my life? I need to follow my own advice, I know, and just take one meal and day at a time. But I wanted you all to know, this is hard. This is a journey. This is my life. And sometimes I am scared, even though I know that is wasted energy.
I made a little sign to help remind me of the choices that make me happy. It is not just about the number on the scale or the size I wear. This diet is about being a better, happier, healthier ME. Eating this way makes me FEEL better in so many ways. So here is what I want to remind myself:
I am off to something really exciting today, that I can tell you more about later. I will be thinking of all the readers of my blog and other dieters I've met on this journey today. You all motivate me and help keep me true, and I hope I do the same for you as well.
