Why can't I lose this last 10 pounds?

10 pounds of excess weight does not need excessive thinking or does it? When you have almost achieved your weight loss goal and the last step seems to be just within reach, why do the mind and palate get tempted to reach out for all those goody stuff? Why is there an irresistible urge to suddenly go chomp chomp and not 'weight and watch'?

Why, why, why?

When I am almost there and I reach out for those all important scales that tell me I am just 10 pounds away, why is there an almost devilish thought to go easy on my strict diet and exercise and fat and calorie burning regime that I so religiously followed and kept up with all along for so many ruthless weeks. Why can I not control just a little while longer? Why can I not stand up against the evil forces of deliciously tantalizing food that have the entire game plan to fatten me up thoroughly?

Going the whole 10 pounds.

It is of course anybody's guess that burning fat is a never-ending process and will never reach its 'this is it' goal. A conscious effort to finish the whole program still sounds impossible. And I never seem to be able to give myself that last bit of encouragement to just make it there for I seem to lose my way just when the last bit is round the corner.

Almost there… yet

Well begun is half done, they say, and when you are almost there, it definitely is celebration time though in this case, a celebration can do more harm than add to the joy of achievement. Let's face it, burning fat is not easy and when you look back at photos that constantly remind you of all sorts of vegetables from a pumpkin to a cabbage to a tomato to a carrot, you are just waiting for that one snap (no pun intended) to show that all important weight-less French bean look that is still a good 10 pounds away.

What do I do once I am done?

There is also the nagging thought - What do I do when I burn all my unwanted fat? I mean all the planning, the routine, the strict diets, the ruthless and tough work-outs had given me something to do apart from my daily routine and set the day's tasks for me. The empty feeling that there is not going to be any more of this just kills. Not that I am not creative enough to think up something, but that will happen at its own pace. Till then what?
