I was looking at my ticker this morning after I posted to a thread and thought, man that little turtle's come a long way from his starting goal! And I realized how nice it is to have that visual aid to show me just how far I've come. Normally at this point in the game in a diet, I probably would have already given up because miracles didn't happen and mountains didn't move. I wouldn't have been satisfied with the 160s, and would be grumbling about wanting to be in the 150s NOW! But now, I'm just enjoying it day by day. The first week of this month I didn't lose, but I appreciated what I had since the beginning and also appreciated that I didn't gain and I moved on! I've lost 12.6 lbs so far, that's amazing! On one hand I've always WANTED to loose weight like this, and on the other I complain WHY can't I lose weight this way. But I can, if I give myself the time and resources to do it! I'm happy with this journey, finally, and it doesn't need to consume my life to make me successful! I don't care when I get to see that turtle on the other end of the ticker, I can smile at him as I watch him inch his way towards there!
Basically, yeah, =D
