Goal Missed

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Well, my first goal just passed yesterday. My anniversary came and I still weigh 205 pounds. I am still trying to build healthy habits. It is harder than I expected to get the weight off. How do I feel about this? I am disappointed, but not giving up. Most days I eat healthy and drink plenty of fluids, but I am still building the exercise habit. I need to reevaluate my weight loss goal and decide how important it is to me. Do I want to put out the extra effort it is going to take to lose the weight or am I satisfied with being healthy at 6' and 205 lbs.?

  You can do it!!! Progress doesn't always show on the scale. Making change is progress!

    Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement. I had not intended for this blog entry to sound like defeat. It is more of a reality check. Having lost only two pounds in three months, I am merely reassessing my goals to make them more realistic.

  Hi Melinda
Saw your blog. Don't get discourage, stick with it. I haven't lost any weight the last couple months either. But I am still tracking my food and reading the articles . I stay encouraged because I haven't gained weight back and I am still trying. Just keep trying to build healthy habits and you can do it.

    Whoa, hold on there. It takes time and a LOT of patience. Allow yourself time to adjust to exercsing and eating right. It is hard; I too struggle. Take it one day at a time. Then when that day is over, start all over again the next day. Keep at it, the weight will start to come off.
