So, I’m struggling. Depressed that I’m fluctuating these 2.5 pounds for almost the entire 2 weeks now. I confess I’ve been having a bowl of coconut nearly every day, like with almond butter or whatever in it. Boring I know, but a treat for me none-the-less. It’s allowed I think, but I cut that out today and do feel a bit leaner and not so thick in the waist. My challenge, I believe, is that I’m fighting age and am at the last 10-15 pounds to my ideal weight. Also, I’ve yo-yo dieted and lo-carb dieted most of my adult life. I think over all it has slowed my metabolism. Listen up youngsters, take care of yourself and don’t let yourself and your health get out of control. The road back is a long one. I have to remember to appreciate and celebrate my achievements… So I tell myself, “be happy that over the last couple of years you’ve dropped 5 dress sizes and over 70 pounds. Yes, this last bit is slow, so what? My positive self talk continues: “I’m a healthy normal size now and look good in my clothes. I’ll live and fight this battle.”
