Why do we impose so many deadlines in our lives? We have for getting dinner ready, getting the kids into bed and so forth. Why do we impose on for weight loss?
I have been trying for over a year to loose 12 pounds. Sounds simple doesn't it? Not for me. I have had so many goal dates I just don't set one any more. To me it isn't about the length of time I lose the weight, but what I learn along the way.
I have been down to a loss of 10 pounds only to have surgery and gain it all back. There was nothing I could do about it. My husband couldn't cook for me. The church we go to cooked for 12 days and let me tell you there are some really good cooks at church. I have been trying to loose that 10 pounds ever since.
If It takes me another year to loose the final 6 pounds I will not beat myself up for taking so long. I will dwell on the fact that I am now controlling my portions, weighting and counting my caloric intake. To me that is far more important that the loss of the final .
I will eventually loose the final 6 and feel really good about getting to my goal. I will dwell on the fact that I now know the correct way to eat and feel good about myself.
