What's the goal?

Friday, April 26, 2013

I have been contemplating the idea of weight loss for the last couple of days? I keep wondering to myself, what is the goal. Is the goal to see the scale go down until I get to a size that is acceptable to me? Is the goal to be skinny?

I honestly am trying to switch my mind frame from must getting skinny so I can wear cute clothes, be healthier, and feel better about myself. I get so pressed about the numbers that I need to realize, this is what my life needs to look like ALL THE TIME. I don't need to get to goal and stop. There is no end goal. The end goal is living a healthy lifestyle for the remainder of my life. Yes, I do want to get to a healthy body weight. Yes I want to lose 100+ lbs but the ultimate goal is to create habits that will allow me to do all those things but ultimately so I can live this healthy lifestyle forever.

I have to constantly remind MYSELF that I'm not on a diet. This is NOT temporary. Diets are temporary. This is a life style change and if I keep up with it for the rest of my life, I won't have to worry about the weight.

I think I make haste to get to that 100 lbs. I need to just take one day at a time and realize that if I keep doing what I'm doing which is eating healthy and working out, the weight will fall off, no matter how long it takes. I am making daily strides and these changes will pay off in the long run. I need to truly trust the process and let this journey transform my mind as well as my body.
