When the goal gets harder...

Sunday, September 29, 2013

So, I set a goal to get to 150 by the time I leave for China, Oct. 12.

That goal is looking harder to hit, as I lost a pound last week, but am already feeling stalled.

In my usual fashion, was thinking about throwing in the towel. But seriously, even if I lose only a couple more pounds before I leave, that will be a couple pounds lost. The goal is not the issue. Progress is the point, and I have to keep progress, not an arbitrary number in mind.

I will keep at it. I will lose as much as I can by Oct. 12. I might surprise myself. I might not.. But it's not just one goal that matters. It's the long term.

    It's the whole picture, not just the weight is what you are saying, correct? Traveling to China is a really big deal. Wow!

    Emme, excellent point....the goal...not the arbitrary number. I've got to wrap my mind around that concept, too.

    Good luck! I frequently find myself in the same all or nothing mindset. Onward! You've got this!
