Just a Matter of Time

Monday, April 22, 2013

I have been back for about 4 weeks now and it was pretty easy to get back into the swing of tracking everything. Before if I ate something that was high in calories(like that piece of cake for a co-workers going away party) I would have been discouraged and not wanted to track for the rest of the day. And if I wasn't tracking why not get chicken wings, and have a treat for dessert....You get the idea. This time my whole mindset is different. Maybe because I remember being 60 lbs lighter, running 8 miles, not being winded after a flight of stairs, my joints not hurting at the end of the day. Maybe it is just finally sinking in that it is not realistic that I won't ever have cake again, or wings, or pizza..But what is realistic is that now those are foods that I am not going to have very often. I am going to lose weight. I am going to run again. I am going to fit into all of the smaller clothes I have waiting for me. It may take a year and a half (I hope!), or it may take three years but I have realized it is just a matter of time.

    Good attitude! A month from now, next Fall, next year, you CAN be closer to your goal and feeling better. It is entirely up to YOU!

Wishing you a lifetime of success!

    Your so right! It is all just a matter of time and not getting discouraged if we don't make the time table we have set for ourselfs. It is a journey and we have to enjoy it or it won't last. Little changes to make it all happen. You go girl!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
