Slow and Steady wins the race

Thursday, September 19, 2013

So I'm trying a new appr0ach to this weight loss journey this time around. I'm trying to lose just one pound at a time. I'm not going to lie I do have a much larger long term goal, with fantasies of skinny jeans and being able to shop for boots and cross my legs and have my husband be able to pick me up.
But when I step on the scale every morning(I know I shouldn't weigh everyday) I am just looking for progress towards the goal of being 1 pound lighter. By approaching it this way a .2 pound loss feels great because thats great progress on a pound not to mention I hit my goal weight about every 2-3 days. I know this will slow down as I get lighter but right now all those little victories really fuel my motivation and make this journey, that I fully expect to take 2-3 years, not seem so daunting.

    I also take it one day at a time. I think it helps to stay off when we lose the weight slowly. It's taken me over a year to lose 20 lbs. , but have kept it off and will continue this way till I reach my goal. You'll reach your goal. I know you can do it. emoticon
