When you begin to make lifestyle changes whether it's getting healthy physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, or taking control of finances,or education take the time to recognize the success in even the smallest of changes. Getting excited about the smallest of changes is a lot more healthy than dwelling negatively on were you are vs were you want to be. Positive thinking prompts positve changes. Stay focused, stay encouraged. Remember even the smallest of change is a success.
The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. Benjamin Mays
Weighing ourselves is important on the the weightloss journey. Often times, the scale takes control of our life and we lose focus of why we are trying to lose weight. Losing weight is more than seeing a certain a certain number on the scale or wearing a certain size. Losing wieght is about being the best you that you can be.
As soon as I decide to take the journey I start feeling good because I know I'm taking control of my health. Then when I start actually losing weight, that gives me more motivation. Then when I can tell a difference in the mirror or by how my clothes fit, my attitude gets even more positive. It just builds, like a snowball going down a hill.
