Learning to Take it Day by Day

Friday, October 12, 2012

The thought came to me that to even be somewhat satisfied with my body and feel like my weight loss efforts are paying off, I still have to lose another 10 lbs which I know won't be until the end of the year (and that's if I stay on track.) That seems so far away, I want to fit into my old clothes now. And even after I lose those 10 lbs, I still have to lose at least 5 more lbs to fit into some of the clothes I bought but never got to wear bc I got off track. I know I just need to take one day at a time , but it can be so hard at times. I need to think of some motivators that will keep me on track. I hope and pray that living a healthy lifestyle and controlling my desire to eat even when I am not hungry becomes second nature. I don't want to be controlled by food or my weight anymore, I want to wake up happy in my own skin. I want to be able to wear anything without worrying whether or not I look fat in it. Even though it may feel like it is going to be an eternity, I just have to remember to keep my mind on the end result. The minutes will turn into hours, which will turn into days, then weeks and then months. The end of the year will be here before I know it and I will be glad that I stuck with it.

    I have felt the exact same way and that feeling comes and goes. One thing that helps me stay motivated and on track is signing up for a race each month. Every month I do a 5k (hopefully progressing towards a 10k) and this weekend I am doing a 5 mile run. It gives me something to work towards and keeps me focused on my fitness level which in turn will impact my weightloss.
