I can't wait...

Monday, January 31, 2011

I'm very impatient today. I want to be at my goal weight NOW!!! Don't know why I'm in this mood today. I've been reading motivational blogs/pages and I'm very impressed by all the success people are having. I want to be there too.

I know, I know. I didn't get 70 plus pounds over weight in one week or month or even one year. I know it's going to take about a year to get it off, if I'm lucky (dedicated). It just seems like a long way off right now.

I must focus on my success so far. Down 8 1/2 lbs since Jan. 1st. That's pretty good. It's way better than not losing at all or worse - putting 8 1/2 lbs back on - yuck. Which is what I probably would have done if I wasn't using Spark People.

I'm so grateful to my friend SooperMommyof3 for introducing me to this fabulous tool box of of weight loss incentives and tools. I love this website. I have made a goal of reading at least one motivational story every day. So far, so good (except when my internet was down). It's what keeps me going.

Thanks to everyone who blogs, you help me, and, I'm sure everyone, a lot.

    When I get impatient about the time in front of me, I look back at the time that has passed, and I realize that it's all relative! The best thing to do is look at today. Where am I today? What am I doing for myself today?
    You're doing wonderful things for yourself. Never lose sight of that and you'll stay motivated!

    Good for you losing that 8 1/2 pounds. You are off to a great start. When I first started spark I was at 217 and wanted to get to 150. That was april last year. I decided on 50 pounds at first and it seemed impossible. Well I am not at 150 yet but I am at 160 as of today. I ask myself where did the months go. Soon you to will look back at your weight loss and say where did the time go? emoticon emoticon where did all the weight go?
