Every day I'm struggling

Thursday, January 17, 2013

So I have really hit a rough patch, two days of not working out turned into 4 days of bad eating...following my usual pattern this is where I would give up. However, since I have not followed my usual pattern thus far ( using SP to its full potential I have ever done till now) I am determined to not give up! My goal to have 50lbs off by July is becoming harder with each day I throw away, but instead of wallowing in defeat I am taking on the challenge and I am going to do th is! If I am 50 lbs lighter and it's August first instead of July, I'm sure you won't hear me complaining :) I have decided that I need to set some "mini goals" to help get me back on track.
1. Be below 200 by the end of January
2. Be down to 195 by my daughter's first birthday (feb.27)
3. Be between 185-189 by Easter break

Here I go again!!!

    We do waste time that could be better spent.

    Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be a certain
    weight by a certain time. Just do you best...

    The results will come.

    The mini goals you have set seem achievable and your mindset is where it needs to be. I'm proud of you for taking the first steps. I know you can do this.

    Small steps and mini goals are good. Once you reach them (and you will) then it will be just enough motivation to start the next goal! Keep up the good work! Never give up!!!!!!
