That is so fantastic Annie!
I also do mini-goals because it makes you feel like you are accomplishing something instead of just waiting for a big payoff
I know a lot of people wouldn't consider my 13 lb. loss since May a big deal but to me it is a huge deal! My clothes are baggy
; I'm not ashamed to be seen in a swimsuit; and I feel like I've dropped a big ole bag of bricks I was carrying around everywhere I went
Annie, you have a good attitude and a lot of enthusiasm and I know
As for the exercise issue: I will probably get my head taken off for this from some people, but I'm going to say it anyway. There are a lot of folks on Spark that exercise like crazy and are at it every day for hours. That's great and I applaud them - if that's what they want to do. As for me, at this point in my life I'm not going to wear a bikini and I'm not out to have "the guys starting to look" as the lady on the e-diets commercial says
I have spoken to my doctor about this subject and have read until my eyes hurt. What I've discovered is that if I overdo it or do things I hate doing "just because:, I don't stick with it. I found a few activities I like to do - yes, actually enjoy doing - and I do them 3-4X a week - sometimes 5-6X. For me it is water jogging; using aqua weights; lawn bowling; Bocce ball, and walking. I usually do these things anywhere from 30 min. to 1 hour and it must be working because my thighs are a shadow of their former selves and I have a waist again
So, my humble advise is to find a few things you enjoy doing and do them and don't worry about what others are doing. Keep up the good work!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
