Today, I weighed in. I wasn't planning on it, it was sort of a spur of the moment thing. the number was..... really, really bad. much more than i thought it would be, especially since i've been doing so well for 8 weeks, and i know i've lost some already. i wasn't expecting a fabulous number, but it was 15 lbs over what i thought my high end number was... uggghh.

today, i'm focusing on loving myself. it's just a number. it will change. trying very hard to use it as motivation, not as self-punishment. i just have sooooo far to go. 50lbs, minimum. it seems like soooo much.

now, i'm going to set myself some mini-goals, to chip away at that awful number. 5lbs at a time should do it.

    I'm sorry it wasn't what you wanted to see. However, use it to your advantage! I like that you've decided to set small goals. That's the first step to continuing. Let it guide you into making this a lifestyle change.

    I'm so proud of you for eating healthy and exercising for the last 8 weeks! That's incredible!

    I think small goals are the way to go. I'm where I want to be for weight now, but I have some other goals I need to work on reaching. I realizxed today that I'm setting myself up for disappointment if I make the goal to big. YOu can do it.

    emoticon I think the "small goals" are a great idea for you! It's a lot easier to work toward losing 5 at a time. I would quit if I looked at the big picture. Hang in there! I have confidence in you! emoticon

    Oh, I feel your pain. I set my goal at 40 pounds, when really, to not be overweight, I should lose like 60 to 70. I just felt like setting a first goal would be more attainable. The mini goal idea is such a good thing. We dont have a ton of money to splurge, so I told myself I can take myself "out" for something healthy to eat every five pounds lost...since I never eat out. At 20, I am saving up for new clothes. If you are anything like me.....I have "done" the diet thing many times, done well, and then gained it all back. We all just need to support each other so we can keep it right this time. Good luck!
