What It Really Feels Like Trying to Lose Weight

Trying-Lose-Weight

I’m not shy to admit that losing weight was a huge struggle for me. Aside from making a lot of mistakes along the way (what, I can’t eat an entire jar of peanut butter?), losing 40 pounds takes a long time. And it takes all the willpower in the world to stay on your healthy path, so if you’ve ever had to lose weight or are trying to drop pounds now, you’ll relate to this completely.

After Stepping on the Scale, I Think, “OK, I Start My Diet Today”

Trying-Lose-Weight

But I Want to Eat Everything

Trying-Lose-Weight

Nope, Not That Salad

Trying-Lose-Weight

Yes, That Brownie. The. Entire. Pan.

Trying-Lose-Weight

And Sometimes I Do

Trying-Lose-Weight

And I Feel So Bad About It

Trying-Lose-Weight

But the Next Day I Get a Fresh Start

Trying-Lose-Weight

I Curse My 6 A.M. Alarm

Trying-Lose-Weight

But Remember That Sweating Makes Me Feel So Awesome

Trying-Lose-Weight

Even Though I Secretly Despise Those Fit Girls at the Gym

Trying-Lose-Weight

Their Determination Is So Inspirational

Trying-Lose-Weight

I Know I Can Look Like That One Day

Trying-Lose-Weight

But Boy, Do I Really, Really Hate Squats

Trying-Lose-Weight

I Am Loving My New Butt, Though

Trying-Lose-Weight

Too Bad For My Butt That I Love Eating and Drinking More

Trying-Lose-Weight

Stress Makes Me Want to Eat

Trying-Lose-Weight

But So Does Being Happy

Trying-Lose-Weight

Or Bored

Trying-Lose-Weight

What Can I Say? I Love Carbs

Trying-Lose-Weight

And Ice Cream

Trying-Lose-Weight

And Anything Deep-Fried, Served on a Stick, or Smothered in Chocolate or Cheese

Trying-Lose-Weight

Yep, I’m Always in the Mood to Eat

Trying-Lose-Weight

But I Stand Firm and Think About How Hot I’ll Look in My Bathing Suit

Trying-Lose-Weight

Or How Jealous My Ex Will Be

Trying-Lose-Weight

Or How I’ll Be Healthy For My Kids

Trying-Lose-Weight

Yep, Losing Weight Isn’t Easy

Trying-Lose-Weight

But Feeling Good in My New Body Makes It All Worthwhile

Trying-Lose-Weight

So I Make Spinach Smoothies For Breakfast

Trying-Lose-Weight

Run Instead of Hitting Happy Hour

Trying-Lose-Weight

And Do Some Reps While Watching Game of Thrones

Trying-Lose-Weight

It’s All About Baby Steps, but I’ve Got My Eye on the Prize
