Diet Diaries: My Mind is Playing Tricks on Me

I wanted to give you guys a progress update on my weight loss.  I ALMOST threw in the towel this week after two months of trying to achieve my weight loss goals.  This week the devil has been busy trying to get me to quit.   After a few weeks of not seeing any movement on the scale and then being sick, I was discouraged.  I kept thinking to myself, it would be so much easier to just let it go and buy new clothes.  I was doing all this work and nothing was changing. What was the point? Continue Reading
