I'm doing better since the last time I wrote. Still in a bit of a funk but I think refocusing on my reasons for exercising and changing my eating habits has helped. Yes, I want to lose weight and yes I want to look better. But there are so many more reasons that I'm doing this. I want to be able to hike and roller blade and maybe take up skiing (I think I would like it). I want to be able to ride roller coasters and not worry that I'm going to fit in the seats. I want to be able to walk up the hill and up the stairs to class without feeling like I might die and sweating and breathing heavy. I my reasons for saying yes or no to invitations to have nothing to do with how I look. I want to live a long, full, healthy life.
I just get overwhelmed sometimes because it seems like if I don't do everything 100% then I don't see results, which isn't really true. I just expect to see instant change when I am working so hard. Of course, in the beginning, the change was more noticeable. But now that I am starting to get more fit, the changes are more subtle. I still have a long way to go. I am just going to focus on one step at a time.
Oh, and I rewrote my rewards on my front info page. I think they are more in line with what I am trying to do now. Let me know what you think! emoticon

I am the big girl on the right. This was taken in early June I believe.

    Glad to see you reworked your rewards to emphasize the parts you can control - your actions, instead of the parts you can't control - your weight loss. It is far better to focus on trying to live healthier and enjoy the positive effects than to focus on whether or not the effects can be easily noticed and want to give up when they're not. Remind yourself that even if you don't see the change, it is still happening within your body. After all, you didn't notice the weight gain daily, so it makes sense you wouldn't notice the weight loss daily, right?
