I need a good swift kick in the butt!

Monday, April 22, 2013

I only lost 1/2 a pound last week and now i'm struggling with my confidence and motivation.

I haven't stopped tracking, exercising and eating healthy, but it feels like I've lost some of the passion for my goals.

So I need a good butt kicking to get me sparked up again.

    If I kicked myself every time I only lost a half pound (or none at all) I would be in next week and full of bruises.

Don't be so hard on yourself, kiddo. You are doing just fine.

    I'll kick you but you have to promise to kick back! I'm ready! It's time for me to start exercising not only my body and mind but also my discipline!

    Why would you need a kick when you're doing everything right? It'll come if you stay on track. I've wandered off a bit and need to get back on, I need the kick!! I know we always want things done quickly but this just isn't one of them! Stay the course, you're doing awesome!!! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon half a pound is still a victory and a step toward your goals! It may not be the giant leap you were hoping for, but slow and steady wins the race, so don't give up hope, just know that you're doing it the right way and that it's more likely to stay off!

    Hey congrats on the 1/2 lb. That is an accomplishment. When I first started in sparkepeople I lived by what the scale said. I would get frustrated that it wasn't going down as fast as I expected it too. I had to take accomplishments in the small things. Maybe my clothes where fitting loser, maybe my I had more energy, maybe the chair at the movie theather wasn't as tight...etc....Your making progress...that is all that matters...don't give up...

    Leave out the "only" and you've lost a half pound. You're going in the right direction, so take that as a positive. I did all the tracking, eating, exercising for almost a month before the scale noticed. Don't lose heart. It will all come together!

    Keep in mind - not everything is "in the scale". Just because the scale hasn't moved doesn't mean you haven't made progress towards your goals.
