This is Day 33 of my 6 pack challenge.
I am definitely into the most challenging stage of my diet.
I’m finding it tough and it’s caught me by surprise. I really didn’t expect to feel this way.
I honestly thought I’d sail through this last phase of my diet as I did in the earlier stages.
The early days of my diet weren’t without incident and setbacks but nothing so far has stopped me dead in my tracks until now.
It’s clear to me that I need to re-assess my mental attitude towards my diet because I’m convinced that that’s where the problem is.
I know that nothing worthwhile is ever easy to get and I need to keep reminding myself of that.
Losing weight and changing my life is an awesome thing to do. So having acknowledged to myself that I’ve lost some enthusiasm for what I’m doing I have now resolved to get it back.
At times like this it’s important to look at the positives and one huge positive is the fact that I haven’t quit. I’m still hanging in there and despite my temporary lack of motivation and apparent lack of progress I’m still going.
I say apparent lack of progress and what I really mean is in comparison to the early days when I was losing 2 to 3 pounds a week.
The reality is I am still losing fat, but just more slowly than before, but that’s fine because there are some easy options I can take to kick-start my progress again.
And besides… I WILL reach my goal sooner rather than later, so I’ve got nothing to worry about.
