A year later...what has changed??? My attitude!!!

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Here I am a year later, 10 pounds lighter, stressed to the limits. What is different for me from this time last year? My more pity parties. I have done some serious soul searching and finding out who I am. It has been tough, and at times painful, but really worth it!! I have to learn to be more patient with myself, I didn't gain the weight overnight, it is not going to come off overnight, my problem over the years...I set too many goals at once, set myself up for failure, and when I slip, I tell myself "tomorrow I will start over, tomorrow I will get back on track", problem is tomorrow never comes!! Until now...I am setting 4 mini goals to achieve in week 1, and each week add 1 more goal. I will exercise, starting slow, doing cardio, and work my way up to strength training and cardio by week 5. I will journal daily and blog weekly, I will try to find people that are struggling or have struggled like myself, and ask them to help me, be my support to stay on track and accoountable. I know I can do this, the difference now, I am no longer going through the motions, I am going to do it!!! I am no longer my worst enemy, I am learning to live again, and like myself again along the way. Bring it on, look out world here comes the new improved me... emoticon

    Congrats on the 10 pounds down! And kudos on setting some mini goals. I have been stuck on what seems like a never-ending plateau - I like the mini goal concept and think I will try it out. Thank you for sharing! Best of luck on your fitness journey.
