I was reminded this morning in my devotional, that what I'm looking for isn't the number on the scale, but peace. Of course the fact that the number on the scale returned to 196 (the lowest I've been in this journey.... I tend to go down, then up for a while, then down, etc.) seemed to give me peace this morning. Peace that I am on the right track, that I am working hard to acheive these goals.
I also realized that meeting this goal in September will put me down 25 lbs since beginning this journey on June 11. Kinda a big number (with bigger ones to come.)
I also have figured out that my lack of exercise is kinda putting me in a stale-mate with the scale. So I need to get back on the wagon today, and get some exercising in.
Goal... 7 more lbs this month. 27 days to go! It feels like such a big goal to me, and I think it is because I have never set small term goals like this. I've always set goals that are BIG and WAY in the Future, so the immediacy of them doesn't ever seem to hit home. Then a couple months in, I realize there's no way I'm going to hit the goal by then, so I change the "goal date"... which makes me feel like I am right on track still, although I have totally missed the mark.
I'm trying hard to focus on this small goal, and my own resolutions for this month in my healthy living change. It's hard, but I can do this!!
