If you follow me on twitter, you know that I have been working hard on my weight since January. Last week I attended a health screening at work and found out that my cholesterol is sky high. I was not that surprised because five years ago at 25, I was also informed that I had high cholesterol. I was also told that I am overweight. My BMI is high by a smidgen but that still did not feel good.
I was disheartened when I received the news.
Why am I making such a big deal out of it? Stressing? Taking it personally?
Because I have been working really hard. I have lost 17 lbs. since January and have been eating healthier than I have in a long time. And my cholesterol is still pushing 300?
I am motivated by positive reinforcement. I was feeling really good. Now I feel really bad and I can tell that my motivation is waning. I have already worked so hard and am still not in decent shape? I should be focusing on how far I have come, I know---but I just feel so
I need to remind myself that I can do this.
I need to get back to my routine and continue working hard.
Eventually, I can make a dent.
