I changed my ticker today

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

Something clicked inside of me this morning. You Can Do It.

For some reason, I had the "real" goal of 155 lbs inside my head but on my ticker I could only put 160 lbs. I think I didn't really believe I could do it so why bother putting my real goal down. Easy enough to let yourself fail when you won't admit what you are really looking for.

This morning, I was posting to my rv enthusiasts team and I saw my ticker. I realized that I was more than half way, barely, to both my fake goal and my real goal. I have made a fairly easy transition to eating better. I have overcome some exercising obstacles due to health issues and just keep plugging away. I have this fantastic support team with my gals in rv enthusiasts, my wonderful DH and other friends and family. I have a great tool in SparkPeople.

I did a little thinking and figured out I have no reason to be scared anymore. I am going to reach my goal weight of 155 lbs. I am going to be healthier. I am going to continue to make positive choices in my life. It is ok if I fall down now and again because I will get up, if not by myself, with the help of all around me.

    I did the same today too. Froma goal of 68kg to 65kg. I had to get at least 1/4 of the way there before I could post it up.

    Good for you.

    I have enjoyed reading your page and blog, and seeing the great progress you are making. Many of us set our original goal weight a little high because it's too overwhelming at first to put the goal we may be able to reach after we've been on this journey awhile. We change and evaluate as we go.
    My weight has been coming off slow and steady. I know that's the best way to do it, but I get anxious to be where you are, looking back and realizing you are halfway there. It will happen!

    Halfway there is AMAZING! emoticon I just changed my ticket too (to use my current weight as the starting and stop counting the 40lbs i lost a few years ago). Isn't it funny what a big psychological step it is?

    Hi Lizzy ... Congratulations on finding the confidence in yourself to say out loud what you really want. I know you will make it ... you're too determined not to. You are making good food choices and not letting health issues keep you from exercising. All exercise is good, and as your health improves you will exercise more, leading to even better health. I've found it's a wonderful circle! You have your head on straight and that's the first requirement to a healthier, slimmer you. Once you've got it all together in your head, and you follow through with good eating habits and exercise the rest falls into place.

    Lizzy - I have no doubt in my mind that you will achieve whatever goal you set for yourself! You are a strong beautiful woman and I am proud to be one of your team friends. Keep up the good job - we are watching and you continue to inspire the rest of us.

    Congrats on the weight loss. Wish my ticker was moving as well as yours. Have hit a bump (more like a wall) in the road. But I'm not quitting either. I, also, know I'm going to make it eventually.
    You can make it.
