When is enough enough? We have to know when we have reached our goals. A friend put it very well to me, at your current weight, do you still feel fat? OUCH! As a matter of fact I do!! So how to you "change" your mind? With facts. The biggest? Loose clothes. For some reason I think NO WOMAN likes the scale, it can turn on you in an instant! I also like the BMI calculator. My favorite I am adding as a link here - because it gives you FACTS - statistics of where you are with the rest of the people in your age and gender. NOW, feel good about that, or plan to be in a different statistic. I've hit 21.8 BMI and I'm in the 9th percentile, which means 91% of females my age weigh more than I do (for their given height). What do I really want??? Not to be in the 1st percentile that's for sure. I just want to lose 7 more pounds so I have wiggle room, and I want to firm up the wiggle room!! I like those goals, so I've announced them. There you have it. I know that will probably take me MONTHS to achieve but I will continue to look at how far I've come, and my statistics, and that will have to console my never-ending female quest to overcome that feeling that whatever IS is not enough. THAT is ungrateful, and just plain wrong.
THANK YOU SP for the sandbox you've provided for me to change my outlook on myself.
Here is my link if anyone is interested, it will provide the same results as the SP calculator, but it includes the statistics.
Have a great day, and above all, value yourself. YOU are worth it.
