Focused at last, but is it too little too late?

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

That "Ah HA!" moment I was waiting for finally happened on Monday. I snapped out of my funk, set some goals and hit the gym. I'm feeling great, but yet I have that nagging feeling at the back of my mind that I've just blown 2 crucial months for reaching my goal.

If I lose 1 pound a week every week until my wedding day, that's still only 12 pounds. My goal was 10 pounds, but then I gained! I am actually 17 pounds away from where I wanted to be.

Granted, even just 5 pounds would help for my dress - and there's always Spanx, but I really just wanted to naturally be my most beautiful self for a day of a thousand memories (and just as many photos).

The point is, I'm back on the horse - and seriously pumped. I had a great work out yesterday, I've got healthy food and a generally positive attitude. I just have to fight to concentrate on the things that I can change. I can affect my weight (positively or negatively), so I need to pay attention to that.

Plus working out regularly feels good, and I know it. I slept better last night, I feel pride in my accomplishment and I want to keep this up.

As motivation, I've started a SparkGuy "Consecutive Gym Days" wall in my cubicle. The highest I've ever gone is 4 days, so I'm excited to see how far I can take this!!!

    Just remember, pay attention to your inches lost as well as your weight. Sometimes we don't lose pounds because we have changed soft, flabby fat into dense, heavy muscle. The scale emoticon is NOT more important than the measuring tape! emoticon
