What happens when you stare at the treadmill timer?
Sunday, June 28, 2009
My husband wise man that he is, reminded me of some truths recently when I was discouraged be cause it took me 7 months to lose 40 pounds and I'm at the half way point of where I wanted to be. I was frustrated and TIRED of the process. He said, what happens when you stare at the timer on the treadmill....it feels like FOREVER until you reach your goal, but if you cover it up with a towel and focus on other things, the time passes quickly. He went on to equate it to the weight loss journey. If every day all I'm looking at are the numbers, it feels like it's taking forever, so instead, he encouraged me to make good and healthy choices such as eating right and exercise and keep going. The weight will be lost and if not at least you know you are healthier and doing good for yourself! I love him!
