Shorter is Better!
Wednesday, November 06, 2013
No, I'm not talking about my height! But although I am a shorty, I don't mind -- saves me hitting my head so often.
I'm talking about
and as an impatient person I am tired of seeing I'm so far away from my goal. I've decided to make my goal a little less for the time being, or maybe I should say a little 'more' in pounds. I've more or less been in maintenance for the past two years, so instead of saying my goal is 125 and I will reach it when I get there -- I've changed it to 135 and hope to get there by the end of the year. Maybe it's reaching a little high, but it will give me more incentive that way. I haven't weighed in at 135 since 1990!!
Way back when I used to have a goal of just half a pound per week. It was realistic and I was able to make that goal. Then I reached a plateau and nothing seemed to be able to get me past the lowest so far of 136.6 -- so close, but as we've all been told; Close Only Counts in Horseshoes! Actually that isn't completely true, I'd much rather be in the 130's even if it is the high end, than back in the 140's or 150's, so getting closer is important.
It will be hard to do with the holidays, but perhaps it is just the incentive I need!!
