I made my 1st goal!!!

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I made my weight goal to lose 5% by July 30!
Goal 190
Actual 188
My Daniel Fast I am sure had something to do with it but I still did it!
I feel much better and I am in my size 12's again, not squeezing in them even.
My next goal is another 5% by Aug 30.
If I've learned nothing else in all of my weight loss attempts of the past, it is be realistic. I didn't gain these extra 50 pounds all at once and I can't expect to lose them all at once, (although it would be nice).
So onward I go:
5% goal by Aug 30
178.5
29 days to go!
It's only 1/3 of a pound a day.

    I think because you have a plan that you will continue to see results. It is likely the sole reason I have been a failure on this journey. I have nothing written down! I think if you seek achievable, realistic goals that you can expect to sustain your successes over time. It is about habit re-shaping, not diet but a lifestyle change!

    Here's a quote I recently found and it, in my thinking, suits SP members so well.

    “Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” ~ Golda Meir

    I just love that quote. I wish nothing but further success as you move along on your journey toward your goals.
