Progress not perfection

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

I was just reading some of my past blogs and though I have not hit the goals I had set, I have made progress. I have been losing about 1 pounds a week every week for about 3 months now . . . I make healthier food choices most of the time . . . and I drink plenty of good old fashioned water.

In the past missing the goals would have sent me into a tailspin and I would have binged and given up - - - but that is not how I responded today - - - today I choose to look at the positive changes that I have made and see the progress that has taken place and to continue in the healthy patterns that I have started to establish.

I have often given up because I was not able to follow a program perfectly but today I chose progress over perfection!

    That's great! Even just 1lb a month is progress in the right direction but you're losing 4lbs a month which is wonderful! That would be 52 lbs in a year, which is an amazing accomplishment! Small changes make a lot difference and helps you to make it a permanent lifestyle change. Don't downplay your great accomplishments!
