Today's Motivational Quote.....

One may miss the mark by aiming too high as too low.

Okay....So I figured I would look up an inspirational quote each day and see how it applies to me. I've been feeling a little aimless lately. I get into these moods every once in a while. Soul searching, I suppose.

I got the book "The Spark" from the library since I am having trouble getting back on track and I think the quote at the beginning of my blog can explain some of my problems. I set my goal for my final weight and that's so far off that it makes me think I can procrastinate about changing the way I eat (aiming too high). Now I've added a measureable intermediate goal of getting to my BMI below 30 (about 20 lbs from here) by November 26th. I am still working on determining a good short term goal. Any ideas? emoticon

Have a sparky day! emoticon

    I started looking at the total weight I wanted to lose and had a hard time sticking to things as it looked like such a mountain. So, I just broke it down into segments and lost some weight then stopped. I have been holding at this weight since the spring. Now I think I will start again and go for my next goal.

    The most interesting thing I have been reading lately is that this may be a good thing. My body would rebel had I lost all the weight I wanted to lose and I probably would have put it back on, just like the times before. I only have my short term experience to speak to, but there may be something to it.

    Park further away and walk more
    Increase you water intake
