Setting a New Goal


Thursday, May 03, 2012


Although I needed to lose 10 more pounds to reach my old goal, I'm going ahead and setting a NEW GOAL! Now, I will need to lose 20 more to reach my goal! I think that when I looked at my ticker and saw that I only needed to lose 10 pounds, it somehow gave me permission to ease up and be too lenient on myself. I gave myself permission to have dessert too many times and to skip workouts too often.

No more looking through rose-colored glasses! With a new goal set, I hope to see clearly that I really need to tighten up. I'm going back to measuring my portions, because they have gradually increased in size. I'm going to force myself to get some exercise each day. I hope that the scales will finally began to move in the right direction and maybe sometime this very year, I will arrive at my goal!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, it is easy to let things slide. I had gotten out of exercising regularly, and my body didn't want to do it. But since I've pushed myself, I'm finding that, again, my body DESIRES to be in motion! After a good brisk walk, we went to Wal Mart. Well, I just wanted to keep on going, so I zipped around, gathering items, and feeling oh-so-good!

I hope this encourages you as you re-set your sites! I read a book about one woman's weight-loss commitment. She decided to look at her challenging new lifestyle as a "new job", one that she wanted to give her best to. I thought that was an interesting perspective:)
