I have to be honest and tell you that this past week was the most challenging week of this whole journey. I have never worked as hard as I did this week and to lose a 1/2 pound was discouraging. It was a small victory. I spent 5 days at the gym and worked myself very hard after work in the evenings and over the weekend. I have logged each and every piece of food that I have eaten and drank a ton of water. I am trying to do everything by the book and it has been a one of the hardest things to do. Being stuck in this plateau is keeping me on edge. It feels like my metabolism is running slower than molasses on some days and faster at other times. It is very frustrating. Sarah said to me that that your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same. I know that my desire to change is greater and I need to continue to work my butt off (literally) and not quit ever in this journey. The number one reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten. I will not lose this battle.
If it doesn’t challenge you then it doesn’t change you right?
