    Sometimes that happens. Tomorrow is a new day, and next week is a new week. emoticon Slow and steady wins the race.

    So emoticon for you. But you have just the perfect attitude. Tomorrow is a new day and the start of the natural challenge. A streak of more than 14 weeks.
emoticon A streak of 14 weeks is certainly not something to poo poo because it's quite a reason to celebrate. emoticon

Not every quote works for everyone but this one is speaking to me at the moment. 310 fitness minutes in 5 days is the best i have done in a long time. And i am starting to get compliments to which in one hand i like and in another i am uncomfortable w still. But its gd to know people are starting to see my efforts. Once i am out of the teens i am gonna buy myself a new pair of jeans. thats just about 5 pds to lose.

    Those fitness minutes adding up is a great thing isn't it? You will get more comfortable with the compliments I bet, because they are going to keep on coming.

You are soon in your TEENS? That is *awesome*.

    emoticon . Sounds like you've found your motivation looking at those fitness minutes for the week and knowing the plans you have for fitness minutes today. Keep it up.
Compliments can be hard to receive. I am learning to respond to them but I still often would rather that people just didn't draw the attention to me.

down for 14 wks in a row...

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

So i was down almost what my goal is per week yeah me... i was off by .25 pds! so excited to be that close to my new weekly goal. I have decided that at 300 i will get a Tattoo saying something about Courage. Then every 10 from there i will set a reward. Which i will put thought into and Blog at a later date. Thank you to all the ladies who added their comments to my last blog. i have decided i will find who i am as i Shrink. I know i like to run so maybe i will be a runner at my new weight. Maybe i will be a marathon runner...Maybe i could be a Coach who knows i am excited to search the possibilities.
Will i end up changing totally? Who knows ....what might be!

    Now that's an incredible accomplishment. I certainly can't say that I've had a streak like that. I believe your determination and commitment is a fine example to the rest of us. Keep your eye on the goal.

now that the goals are set i think... no i know that i am scared! i know that i am trying to recover from being a forever planner...plan and plan and nothing happens.... i think i am Scared of that 100 pd ad beyond loss cause i can not remember being that small. I am so comfortable being the weight i am i dont know if i can be any other way. I do want to be my goal weight but How do i get past the fear of it...Do i journal, do i talk, so i write a story? I am not sure but i know i want to get to the goal of being under 200.....Suggestions? I want to be at goal for my girlfriends wedding in Sept. 245 by then should be fairly simple right?

    I agree with Maria too. If you make smaller goals along the way, maybe you can also find smaller rewards to look forward to? I saw on somebody's blog yesterday that they had planned out all their goals - both fitness and weight loss - and for each small goal they had a certain reward, including things like a new water bottle, new shoes, earrings, and other things. Just small things along the way might help you celebrate any success you have, and since every little bit is important that might help!

    I agree with Maria. I put too much pressure on myself about being my goal weight by the time summer is here so i can look good in a bathing suit and that puts too much stress on me and I never get to enjoy the fact that I have lost 40 pounds already. my body has changed so much and people notice and that should be good enough.

I think If you lose 1/2 of what you want by then you should be happy about how you look. Just take time to enjoy the small victories and not worry too much about the overall goal. It will make you feel better and who knows maybe the weight will come off quicker. Good luck emoticon

    I wonder if you aren't focussing too far into the future? It sounds like from this blog and the "new goals" blog that you are trying to convince yourself that this isn't that difficult and it should be easy to loose 100 plus pounds by your goal date. I truly need to loose 100 plus pounds too but didn't even think much about that and still don't though I've lost 65 lbs already. It was to enormous an amount to think about. It was an impossible number of pounds to comprehend. In mind it was impossible.
For myself I have found it better to focus on about 3 months at a time. During that time I set fitness and eating goals which I feel are reasonable to attain. I want to build in opportunity for success. It isn't until that 3 months have passed that I start to plan again so I have a realistic place to plan from. So what if I didn't get off all the pounds I planned for but I can start from whereever I am. I learned quickly that this time the journey is not all about the pounds for me but also the fitness. By starting small with fitness minutes and forms of exercise I can review and increase in my goals regularly. By doing this I am finding that there are kinds of health and fitness victories along the way which I didn't expect and can celebrate besides the number on the scale. I have rambled here a bit and hope I am making some sense. Back to my main point: You need to set a few goals for a shorter period to be realistic and doable. Though the big picture is there to guide those goals don't let it be such a focus. Wouldn't it be great if the days arrived and you were 50 lbs lighters? That in itself is success. Not saying it won't be 100 but I'm afraid that if you don't stay on track for that goal that you will beat yourself up for being a failure. And well I know where that leads. I've been there. We yoyo up and down but never get where we want to be. Celebrate success no matter how big or how small. Celebrate success whether it's on the scale or off the scale. emoticon emoticon
