I've hit a proverbial wall in my weight loss journey. For the last 2 weeks or so, I've bounced between 129 and 132 pounds.
Please no one hate me for this, but this is the first time in my life that I have really tried to lose weight in a healthy way. A couple of times in my life, I have made some weight loss attempts, but found myself somewhat pathologically fixated on controlling my intake. I suspect that should a psychiatrist have evaluated me during those periods, there would have been serious concerns. In the past, I've always been slim and eaten whatever I want, barring the aforementioned episodes. I think this is the difficulty I'm having. I've never learned the importance of self control and moderation in my eating. If I felt like an entire box of Little Debbies, I'd go for it. Obviously this isn't a healthful way to live, and more than the weight coming off (although that's great!) I'm really grateful that I am finally learning a few things about self control. I really feel that at it's core, the Word of Wisdom is all about making healthful choices with regard to how you treat your body, and I'm learning a lot about how to do that better.
