Slow is not always bad

Saturday, June 09, 2007

I've been on this weight loss venture for just over a year now. I first started out using Weight Watchers then in June of last year switched to SparkPeople.
Some might say my progress was pretty minimal and pretty slow.
And it really is

The thing is in that one year time frame, I lost 15 lbs, lost 3 inches in my hips, one inch in my bust and I'm not sure how much in my waist.
Those numbers are not huge by any means and I will never make the Successful Stories here. But the part that tickles me to death is I have KEPT IT OFF! I have logged my food most every day since the beginning.

I have two challenges I still face and if faced, they would speed the weight loss a great deal. That is drinking lots of water and exercising on a regular basis.

If your weight loss is slow, don't let it get you down. Just keep the overall goal in view and the losses will come. Perhaps the losses will stay too. Sometimes I think slow is better.

    Boy, I really agree with you. The slower the changes are, the more I'm really incorporating long term lifestyle change. I trust the slow changes much more than the fast ones, because I'm more confident in my ability to keep it off.

    A big congratulations on your accomplishments so far. That's something to be proud of.
