Where is the balance between patting yourself on the back and pushing to meet a goal?
Example: I just turned 38 years old. I am healthy and fit. I have a beautiful family, a strong marriage, and a career that I love. I am living the life I wanted!
However... I'm about seven pounds above my maintenance weight. My jeans are tight, and I don't like the way my silhouette is looking with these extra pounds. Therefore, I have SOME motivation to focus my efforts on losing the weight.
Yet, every time I splurge, I tell myself, "Oh, it's fine. What are a couple of pounds?" In the moment, I'm happy...and complacent. It's only later that I regret my snacking/lack of exercise, etc.
Any advice? I really need to step it up a notch.
