Well I went hiking with my friend today and what an experience! I have never felt so good to make it to the top of a mountain like it did today!
I've been doing really well and have lost 6 pounds. Just feels good to realize things are moving in the right direction.
My friend who has lost 60 pounds in 6 months has been a great motivater to me! She is doing an awesome job and it encourages me to see her still at it!
When I was climbing the hill today and wanted to give up I decided to look down and not see how much farther I had to go! Just one step at a time and focusing on making it to the next little goal was enough for me. If I looked how far I had to climb I would have given up in the beginning.
Towards the end I didn't think I was going to make it and felt sick. What motivated me actually is my ex. He used to hound me to death about my weight and how if I loved him I'd lose weight yada yada yada. I want to feel and look healthy and the next time I see my ex I hope his jaw drops to the ground! Crazy reason to feel motivated, but gotta use what works!
