Do I Really Want to Get There?
Wednesday, September 01, 2010
I am so close to my goal weight. Yet I think I am resisting trying too hard to reach it. Maybe I think I will miss those moments of satisfaction at seeing a pound drop off. I have reached other goals in the past, like completing a marathon, Somehow the initial excitement wore off and I felt a little depressed. I felt, "What now?" The race is finished. I need a new goal, so I would start working a new goal of beating my time.
So when I reach my goal weight, what will be my goal then? Saying to myself, "Wow, my weight has stayed the same this week!" probably won't do much for me. Will I set a new goal weight of 5 pounds less? Or is that how eating disorders start?
I need new ideas of goal to set after I reached my goal weight, which is only a couple pounds away. It is the start of a new month, and time to set goals for the month. It is time for me to think ahead and plan my next steps for when I reach my goal weight.
