Another AHA Moment - Aplogizing for weight loss!
Thursday, October 22, 2009
The weather in Michigan is starting to turn cold so I decided to join a 24 hour gym.
I walked in today and talked to the staff. She asked are you familiar with exercise? Have you done any strength training? My comment - sure some. As we continued talking I explained that I am committed to a lifestyle change and using SparkPeople to lose weight.
She had never heard of it so I said "Well, it is great. I have used it to lose over 60 pounds. I know it is not much but I am trying". As the words came out of my mouth I am thinking "Hey Girl, take credit and be proud - stop thinking about how far you have to go but how far you have come. Wow, I know I should not beat myself up but that was definitely a DUMB moment.
I need to keep the joy of success to keep my momentum. Sure I have a long way to go but I am still going and that is success.
