I want to get there NOW.
Thursday, August 07, 2008
I have spent the last 8 months losing weight at a slow pace. Let's see...12 pounds in 8 months averages out to less than half a pound a week. Not bad actually.
Now that I'm getting really close to my goal weight, I have lost my patience. I want to get there NOW!
I need to calm down and stop trying to rush my way to the finish line. Unrealistic expectations are what lead to disappointments. It is OKAY if I don't stay within my calorie goals every single day. It is OKAY if I miss a workout and don't have time to make up for it later in the week. It is OKAY if I don't lose 2 pounds a week. A loss is a loss. I will get there. It may not be this week, or even next month, but I will get there.
