I'm Closer Than I Was Yesterday

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Losing weight is a gradual process. I gained it over time. I will lose it over time.

I need P - P - P - D ! That's Patience, Planning, Perseverance, Determination.

Patience because the whole process takes time.

Planning because I need to know what action steps I'm taking to achieve my goal.

Perseverance because I need to continue with what I'm doing despite the temptations that cross my path.

Determination because I made a commitment to myself and I'm doing whatever it takes, no matter how long, to achieve my goal.

Creating change requires both mental and physical participation.

My mindset gets worked out, the same way as my body because I'm learning and mastering coping skills and strategies so I can continue to be the healthiest I can be.

How are you closer today than you were yesterday?

    I'm closer today because I focused on getting my run done instead of letting it go like the old days.

Mental change leads to physical change.

Great blog!

    Great Blog and I love the statement. I am striving for a better me everyday. Sure I falter, but I learnt to pick myself back up and be stronger than I was.
Have a great day!

    In many ways, yes - loosing weight, no. I feel better and have more energy and my clothes feel looser, so in that sense I am happy.

    Patience is the tough one in this era of instant gratification.

    Funny you should ask... I was just thinking about my October goals. I don't have them written down yet. Setting goals is like my road map.

You hit the nail on the head with this blog! We all need PPPD.
