I have been so down in the dumps these last few days – the poor weight loss has really got to me. Also my knee is not good so while I’m still managing to exercise at the gym my morning runs are out. But I think I’m being a bit silly to be so disappointed in myself – I’m in a healthy weight range, I’m wearing smaller clothes, I’m exercising, eating well – if someone had told me this time last year I’d be in this situation I’d have told them that would put me on top of the world. I was 65kg in September last year and with a BMI of 28 I was at the upper end of the ‘overweight’ scale. A few more kilos and I’d have been obese.
I need to try and remind myself of how far I’ve come and stop getting so down on myself about the plateau I seem to be in at the moment. I think one of the hardest things is to stay motivated when things aren’t going well. I’ve had a few moments of ‘I might as well give up, it’s stopped working’ but I know if I maintain the motivation and keep going I should break through this funk and get there eventually. Well, here’s hoping!!
