Hey people before it is much too late, I just want to tell everyone to bask in the glory when you are being complemented on your appearance it doesn't have to wait until your at goal weight.....don't cheat yourself of feeling good about you!
When you get your chance to shine take time to enjoy it and I mean enjoy it! Enjoy the moments and the process, take time to recognize every bit of progress you are making and promise to SMILE!
Don't forget to celebrate all along the way to your goal as those moments are just as important as the end result! Quit down sizing all of your efforts! Sometimes we are blind to the progress we are making until the opportunity has passed us bye and we missed out on experiencing all those good feeling emotions.....don't let that be you!
Here I am my fourth time around and this is my chance to enjoy how I am transforming inside out. Right now I am at that point where I have lost just enough weight for people to notice....in the past I never really gave much attention to the complements people would shower me with. I was my own worst cheerleader. In my own thoughts the small weight loss that everyone was noticing wasn't anything to be too happy about because I was still over weight, I wasn't celebrating the spotlight moments, instead I was to hung up on being the ideal weight and even when I got there I still was not nice to myself.....instead I told myself you still could stand to loose another 25 pounds.....I kept killing all my own efforts. I treated myself terribly and did end up missing out on smiling moments. I'm smarter now, never turning away any good words.
This has been a great week, people have noticed some of my outer layers have fell off and it is the best feeling ever! Who ever said you can't celebrate all the moments? and What is being the ideal weight? I'm not to my goal but you know what? I am all that and a bag of chips right now! Can you feel me smiling?
