I was just reading over some message boards and saw my weight ticker. What I noticed is how far I have to go to reach my goal weight. I understand I only started a month ago but it is almost disturbing of how long I have left.
Then I realized other people's tickers...some have not lost any because they are very new, some have lost some weight (same position as me), and some are almost at their goal weight! So why do we look at the numbers and have tickers and get discouraged?? Look around and find someone who is close to their goal weight and take their story as encouragement. We have so much to be thankful for so let us work together to make this happen.
Let's start with 5. Just 5 pounds, don't look at your ticker. Focus on your food and exercise. Remember you are here to encourage and be encouraged. It will be much easier taking it 5 pounds at a time. I am so close to my 5 pounds...how about you?
I am looking forward to working 5 pounds at a time because I do get discouraged seeing the big picture.
