I am SO glad that my decision this year was to "keep going no matter what".
If I hadn't done that, I'd have probably quit the first time I had a week with a 0 loss.
Instead, I've made it through TWO weeks of zero loss; my exercise streak is intact after a whopping (for me) 36 days; and I'm now down 11 pounds!
In addition to 11 less pounds under my belt :-), I also have my first
for fitness minutes in a month, a consistency award, a popular blog post (
), and I'm up from Level 1 resistance on my new recumbent bike to Level 6.
All in just 5 weeks! That's crazy. It might not seem like a lot to some, but if you could have seen me try to get up off a couch and walk across the room, with my decrepit, locked-up knees and atrociously bad eating habits, just 5 weeks ago ... you'd know it's real progress.
And if I can do it, so can you. Like SparkGuy says, pick one small thing and focus on doing it consistently. Then watch and see what happens.
If you haven't started yet, start today!
We CAN do this!
