Baby Steps, Y'all

I've really been riding the struggle bus lately... I have hit a plateau, and I have no one or no one thing to blame but myself.

I enjoy socializing and having a beer (or five) every now and then. Unfortunately, my socialization has been occurring every weekend lately. Of course, it's not bad to have a few beers or dinner from a food truck sometimes, but when I have indulged recently, let me tell you, I have gone hard in the paint.

One beer leads to five, one Los Hermanos food truck quesadilla leads to dessert, you know the deal. When I indulge, I tend to not stop. I have the mentality of "I ate crappy for lunch, might as well eat crappy for dinner!" Then, that leads to me eating crappy over the entire weekend.

I was doing great in the beginning of my journey, but I have let myself slip a little bit, and because of that, I have not seen progress. In fact, the last few sets of weekdays have been spent working so hard trying to get the weekend weight off. 

This just shows that I will have to work even harder to maintain my weight once I've hit my goal than I worked trying to reach that goal. Losing weight is all about the mental battle, and just because you've lost a significant amount of weight, doesn't mean that stops. 

Although I have hit a few bumps, it doesn't mean I have given up. I plan on working on being more in control and not going overboard just because I ate badly the day before. The struggle never stops, but I have a choice. I have a choice to do better than the day before and work through my journey one step at a time. Baby steps, y'all...baby steps.
