I think I have had an awakening moment.

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Over time I have been saying i want to lose weight but never seem to stick with it. I set up these goals and act like it is only gonna take a month and some how I am going to lose 150 lbs over night. My thinking has been way off. Some how i feel like this time is different. I really WANT it now. I am getting up and doing my exercises and feeling great about what I am accomplishing. I know it is going to take time. But I am willing to take that time to make it happen now. Not setting unrealistic goals now. Will take each day and work with what i have and realize that it is ok. Each day I am going to be ok. Baby steps in the right direction are better than no steps at all. Slow and steady weight loss is my goal now. I am ok with a pound here and a pound there because i am losing. I might not look like it now but you watch and see I will look like it soon.

I posted this one year ago and am just now getting back to it. I do honestly feel this way. Although it didn't help me last year, I am determined to do it this time. So I will take this blog post as a reminder of they way i want to feel every day and use it to move forward.
2013 is going to be a great year.

    Totally agree, Candie. My weight goal each week is to be down SOMETHING. Anything. And then I really celebrate being down a "5" on the scale.. i.e., if my weight is 221, my next goal is 219.9. Then my goal will become 214.9 and so on. You're doing great!!!
