I have yet to start losing weight. However, I finally know how to create that traditional journal I have been writing about. That is the hard work. In fact, it is even harder than planning meals themselves. I have made many mistakes along the way in my weight loss journey. My weight goes up and down for a number of reasons many of which have to do with just plain old struggle and a lack of accountability. I need to be held accountable and not just be honest about it. Simple as that. Taking action is the hardest part but only because I feel like I didn't know what I was doing. It is always this time things will get better. Maybe just maybe that mindset needs to change.
