There are two parts to every goal: First, go for what you want, and second, enjoy it!
Oh I've had slow months. Not days months, weeks where the scales either wouldn't budge or shoot it bulged upwards. For about a year I did nothing but eat my weigh (pun intended) back up over what I began Spark at five years ago. Why? Well isn't that the proverbial question? Who knows why we do what we do to our bodies when no one is looking.
Oh I've done it by dieting, by weight watchers, by purging (yes I've done this after a bad binge), by exercise, to lose the weight....to gain it? well that is easy I gave up on me and thought I wanted the crap more than I wanted to feel good about myself. Because lets be real I didn't like the me I was at that point very much. So I began fresh, again and again....I really thought I would never begin losing again, because no matter how much the words came out of my mouth the food kept going in.
So the day came when I just awoke and decided enough was enough. I wanted to reach my goals...again....and this time I knew the cost of not following through. So each day I begin with a goal for the day. Could be water, exercise, fruits and veggies, could be anything, but a goal is set.....so far so good i'm down six pounds and moving forward. Oh I mess up and from time to time the scales tell the tale, but i'm ok with that and I know I can pick up wherever I leave off.
So today enjoy the journey and maybe just maybe your tomorrow will be even brighter.
