The 1st is right around the corner! I can't believe how fast February has gone by. When I decided to really commit to this journey (again), I dedicated to focus on the positives of every day and every situation. I truly believe that this is the reason I've stuck with this and am still going strong. I also decided to celebrate each accomplishment and not set my goals or expectations too high. I've made progress with endurance, flexibility, and strength. My clothes are feeling looser. I've had compliments about my progress, so I'm pleased its noticeable. A big change for me this time around is my weighing in. I decided that the scale should not be my primary focus and that I would not allow myself to be obsessed with weighing in. I weigh in on the 1st of the month and once in the middle of the month. No cheating/peaking at the scale. At first I was afraid that not weighing in would throw me off track- but I've been so focused on staying positive and my other goals that I've seen great progress on the scale. 16 pounds in 1 1/2 months is more than I'd ever expected. I am excited to weigh in on the 1st. Which feels weird... Totally weird.... feeling excited to step on a scale. I think the real difference this time around for me is that I'm happier, less stressed and more positive. Attitude is everything, right? If you can believe it, you can achieve it!!
