60 day fitness challenge 2- week 2
I’m down in the mouth today. I didn’t put weight on but I only lost 1 lb which considering the amount of effort put in has shocked me a little. I have to learn to cope with and move on from disappointment and harness the negatives into positives so next week I expect a decent weight loss… I’ll work even harder to achieve that.
And as if there was someone watching over me when I needed it, this morning I crawled into the Irving Gas Station, hard on empty. I went in to hand over my $20 and one of the ladies there grinned at me and said “congratulations”. We chatted and she told me she had clipped last weeks 60 Day Fitness Challenge article in the Progress Bulletin for inspiration. “I used to be 450 lb” she told me. “I had my stomach stapled and went down to a size 8″…..”but over the years some of the weight has crept back on and I need to lose 100 lb”. She told me that “today” the ladies at the Irving were on the first day of their own 60 day fitness challenge.. “no creme eggs now” were her parting words (last year everytime I fell off the weight loss wagon I’d head to that Irving gas station and scoff Cadbury’s creme eggs!)
That was a hugely positive re-enforcement this morning and I am sooo grateful it came
Thank you Irving gas station lady!
