the most important advice to any one losing weight.

one hour at a time.
one day at a time.
one week at a time.
sometime's it's so overwhelming that i still have 80 lbs to lose... holy cow. literally.
however... i have to focus on what i've done so far. 20lbs is pretty damn good no matter how you twist it... and i'm much happier than i was a month ago.
one thing that motivates me most is progress pictures. i love it. i love seeing people living a life they never thought they'd have, or have back. it's so inspiring.
sometimes i get impatient to get my gym membership, or for hubby to get his license back so we can be active and explore the world outside of restaurants and movie theaters.. but i have to remember... in order to be successful at the gym and the classes i aspire to take... it's better to take advantage of this time and work on my form and as much cardio as i can.. that way i can take full advantage in january. and as for exploring.. i don't want to be stuck at the bottom of a ravine and too exhausted to climb back up to where the car is.... i'm still building my foundation to a healthier lacie. a strong house must be built on a good foundation.. and i'm so excited for the future and my weight loss, the possibilities... it's sometimes the main source of discouragement for me.
one pound at a time.
one week at a time. as long as the scales don't go up... it's progress.
