This IS my year!!!

Monday, April 15, 2013

It's been a while since I've written a blog, but then it's been a while since I've felt I had something to say. Something I can look back at when struggling.

I'm Hoping that this is my year! My year to face my fears, figure out my plan and end my circle of disappointment. It's all a learning curve. If I don't learn from my mistakes and take responsibility for the outcome, then I probably wasn't serious enough to make the change's I sought. Today I am.

So many times I started out on this road with minor success. Reaching a 25lbs weight loss at one time. Why did I stop? I couldn't tell you, except it was more about reaching some level and getting too comfortable. When I saw I was struggling It was MY decision to give up and of course that was the worst thing I could have done. Now it's not so much about some high goal but reaching a goal I can live with.

We have to set goals of course...but sometimes there a little high, sometimes there not even reasonable. I'm never going to be my younger self, never going to be the girl that I once was, but I can be physically stronger, I can be more beautiful inside, all while losing weight.

Yes it will take time, and yes there will be times I feel like it's not moving fast enough. But If I can look back at progress and say "I'm never going back there" and keep moving forward, I'll reach a goal I'm happy with AND can live with. I want to enjoy wearing my little black dress, be fearless going to the pool and feel good putting on a pair of summer shorts. These are goals I can make happen. So one day at a time making sure I accomplish something towards my goal everyday.

The journey begins.

    Yes! Allow yourself to WIN this year; it's time - and you are ready. If it takes you longer than you'd like; or less time than you think; never doubt yourself because you've got this Jan! xxx

    So true. Need to set the proper goals, I believe that means setting smaller, achievable goals working towards a larger goal. It sounds like you've got your mind right, doing it for the right reasons and not trying to fool yourself with perhaps unrealistic goals. You can do this!

    You can do it this time Jan, I am sure of it as you have the acknowledge and the tools to do it. Please remember this is a life style change and you have to choose a plan that you can be happy with and you will have to continue in doing exercise. We can never go back to the old way of eating.I am really ready for the life style change and keep doing these different plans it taking it toll on my physically and emotionally. Since I don't have that much more to lose to reach my goal and how ever long it will take me and do hope that I will reach my goal. I am proud of you girl.

    Make a plan and follow it. Nothing about this journey is haphazard. It's hard work but worthwhile work. Keep telling yourself that you are worth it. We all have setbacks and times that we feel like we'll never succeed but perseverance pays off. emoticon emoticon
