That's my next magic number, that's my goal, that's my motivation. When I weighed in on Friday, I finally got to 232. Yay! So, now my small goal is to get below the 230's. I want to see 229. So that night, before bed, I pictured 229 in my head and repeated it to myself over and over.

I've had a rough few weeks lately, so I've had to dig deep to keep my motivation up. Last week, and into this week, I missed a few workouts due to exhaustion and depression taking over. I saw my doctor to address some issues I've been having, and I think we're getting them under control. I actually am starting to feel better today.

A few things I've noticed about myself is my desire to keep going on my plan. On Thursday night, the last thing I wanted to do was walk. I'd spent most of the day half asleep and keeping myself going with caffeine. But when I got to the track, I walked. I told myself I'd feel better. Sure enough - I did! I felt SO much better afterwards! The same thing happened last night. I was beyond exhausted most of the day, but pushed myself to walk and I felt better. Today, I was able to get up and workout. Something I hadn't done since last Monday.

So, I'm getting there. Through the help of my doctor, I'm hopefully getting my head straightened out. Through the help of Sparkpeople, I'm staying on track. Through the help of myself - I'm getting the help I need and I'm learning a new way of life.
