Duncan’s Weight Loss Challenge – Part 4 Why they call it a challenge
So here we are 4 weeks into my Body By Vi challenge. I know I keep saying about the positive stuff and there is plenty of that, but for a minute I want to chat about getting disheartened with it all. There are times when I have become disheartened, times when it would be easier to just stop and be fatter rather than fitter, times when I start to question whether it’s worth it. Especially when I see friends and loved ones having wonderful food and I need to sit back and have my shake! I think we all have times where we doubt our actions as we change our habits. But then is the right road the easy one or the difficult one? More often than not the right road for us is the difficult one, and this has proved to be the case this last week. I spent some time struggling this week, feeling hungrier during the day and when I got home I was so hungry I just wanted to grab anything I could.
I didn’t completely fall off the wagon though, I made it through another week and weighed in at my usual time. Seeing the results has hardened my resolve, yes it is worth it! Yes, I do want to go through this as I’m feeling far more energetic, slimmer, enthusiastic about life and ready to take on the World. I have now lost approximately 12lbs in the 4 weeks, almost a stone. I’m very much on track to reach my goal, well ahead of schedule. My waistline has shrunk by 2 inches too. Result!
So what am I doing to keep the demons at bay? I’m stepping things up! I’ve signed up to do a 6k mud run in October, and I’ve started cycling from home to Gatwick Airport and back each workday when I’m catching the train (Something I had been doing but had stopped as it was hard on my back). I’ll be starting a training regime to get fit for this mud run, so I don’t embarrass myself totally come October. It’s gonna be tough, but then the best things in life make you stretch your limits!
I’m going to use the mud run as a chance to raise some money for my Scout Group, 1st Burstow, so if you want to sponsor me please feel free to visit my Just Giving page, when I’ve created it!
