the most important advice to any one losing weight.

Friday, December 07, 2012

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.

    You've got a wonderful attitude coupled with the right idea and positive thinking. What's're right. It comes off one pound at a day at a time. Every little thing you do to advance yourself towards your goal counts. Yes it does. You're right on track. Keep doing what you're doing and the 20# loss will morph into 30#, then 40# until you've burned away the rest and you're in maintenance. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you're doing just fine!! Keep in mind that you didn't put the weight on all at once (in one day) it's going to take some time, but you can do it!! You know that!!

    What a great attitude! Hang on to that. I like the analogy of building a house and starting with a strong foundations. That is a perfect way to look at things. Remember that if you get stuck, you are still moving forward even when it looks like you are standing still. Keep up the good work and those 80 pounds will be gone. Good luck with your journey and keep on believing.
