Sometimes it's okay to look back....

Thursday, March 22, 2007

So when I started Sparking again in January, SP's calculators told me that I could lose 50# by the end of June. Wow, I thought -- that would be *perfect* for my reunion. I wouldn't be as thin as I will be when I hit my tentative goal weight of 200#, but certainly thinner than I am NOW, and have a wider range of clothing available and be looking pretty good.

Then in February I slacked off and basically just maintained my loss to that point. And I started getting discouraged -- but who did I have to blame but myself, right?

In March it picked up again, and though still slow, at least the scale is/was moving down. The other day however, I was thinking: "I'll never hit that 50#, why am I even trying?" Talk about negativity!! Shortly after, I realized that the 50# was no longer 50# away -- it was only 35#! Now THAT makes it something achievable :-)

Even though I have my tickers and such as visible reminders, I have only been focusing on how far I've had to go, and not looking at how far I've come. It makes a difference sometimes to look behind you for just a minute, and appreciate the distance traveled. When you turn back around, the horizon seems a lot closer.


Almost 15 pounds gone!!

When I lose 2/10 of a pound, I will officially be down 15 pounds!!

Here, I have to mark each of those pounds:




Numbers are dropping again!

Hooray!! I've lost another pound after pretty much just bouncing around in February, and am on my way to losing another! Maybe this will work after all ;-)

Still still here. Just quiet. Working through this valley in the weight loss/eating better/eating less dept. I'll make it.


Still with this, ya know ;-)

Just a quick fly-by to let my friends and MYSELF know I'm still in this game. :-)
