By the way...I didn't lose 7 pounds in 2 days. I had originally entered my weight from the doc's office on Friday but then realized that I don't go there often enough to have a weekly weigh-in number. So I changed today's weight to what my scale says first thing in the morning.
Baby steps and small victory's add up to SWEET SUCCESS.
Start tiny, use that pedometer, it's been a huge help to me. Find ways to increase your steps. USE every tool you have and all the helps here on the site including people.
Celebrate your victory's and acknowlege the bumps in the road but then move back on to the goals. Goals aren't set in stone...adjust, re-evaluate, determine what you are immediately capable of doing or changing and then always think about adjusting, re-evaluating and setting new challenges. I think people start out very hard and with the giant goals which isn't a great way to set yourself up for SWEET SUCCESS!
1drwoman: Thank you so much for your support and honest candor. I really need it right now. I've met my first two mini-goals for the day and am feeling a little better than I did yesterday.
I'm not sad...just discouraged. Taking a few steps in the right direction will begin to keep that at bay, I'm sure.
Are there any particular boards or team pages you would recommend I follow? I can't stay on top of all of the ones that I was added to when I joined...I'm looking for a group that is very active, supportive and accepts no BS.
