choosing to celebrate

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

This month marks one year since I actually started to live healthy. I've lost 32 pounds in the last year.

I'm tempted to beat myself up for not losing more. If I had worked as hard in the last 6 months as I did in the first 6 months that number would have been more like 50.

But getting angry with myself will not change the number on the scale today. So today I choose to celebrate what I have done in the last year:
celebrate losing 32 pounds
celebrate not gaining at any time this year more than 5 pounds
celebrate running a 5K
celebrate fitting in my uniform (for work) again
celebrate people noticing
celebrate my face looking thinner

And now I will set new goals:
kick myself in the butt
work harder
keep going
lose another 32 pounds or more in the nest year
