Sunday - 2 months of my lifestyle change

Sunday, October 20, 2013

I think I did too much shopping yesterday because I'm feeling a little tired today. I did not exercise afterall. The day was nice emoticon and I could have walked outside but the day passed and feeling tired I made today a rest day. Most days it is still a battle for me to convince myself to exercise. I thought about my walk the other day. Some people do this distance repeatedly in a day, without a huff or a puff and for me it is a long, long walk and I'm exhausted the rest of the day.
Who knows if this will improve? If I will not be able to do more with this illness? I want to do better, but....

For some reason the scale has been going down steadily. emoticon Not by much but the trend is there. Sometimes the number seems to have a hard time going down, and sometimes like now it seems to go all by itself. ???
Today makes 2 months of my lifestyle change and I am just touching minus 12 kilos. I'm satisfied, but had thought there would have been more of a weight loss. If I count the same 3 kilos lost and regained 3 times (after the wedding and Passignano company), it could have been more.

I'm making some progress in housecleaning emoticon ....my other goal. I'm sure this will take months also, if I continue. In one week I have done some things differently. Thanks to the Flylady.

You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be!
by: Donna Levine

There is inside you
All of the potential
To be whatever you want to be;
All of the energy
To do whatever you want to do.
Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
Doing what you want to do,
And each day, take one step
Towards your dream.
And though at times it may seem too
difficult to continue,
Hold on to your dream.
One morning you will awake to find
That you are the person you dreamed of,
Doing what you wanted to do,
Simply because you had the courage
To believe in your potential
And to hold on to your dream.

    emoticon with your goals and you will realise your accomplishments!
    Thanks for the encouragement for my steps goal. I'll get there faster than I think but right now I am round 8000 a day which is better than the 3500 I get when I don't go out walking in a day.

    Wow, that is a huge weightloss - 12 kgs in 8 weeks right? I'm not sure what your illness is that you mentioned, I'll check out your sparkspage and see if you have listed it there. I think you are doing amazingly! emoticon emoticon

    I love your poem, I will copy that one, if that is OK with you? I think that we all want things to happen quicker than they do, but with patience and consistency ........

    Keep up the great work xx.

    emoticon emoticon You are able to do so much more than when your first started. I am ALWAYS so proud of you when I read how much you walked on your treadmill. You've gone from baby steps to a mile??? How amazing is that Jackie!!

    I'm glad you like the Flylady site. Has lots of good information to help you clear the clutter.

    Have a great week

    Your moving downward. That's a good thing! Don't forget about non scale victories too.

    HUGS and good luck as you continue on.

    The scale isn't always the answer. I'm measuring things by how I feel, how my clothes are fitting, and mainly by what I can do now that I couldn't do just a few short months ago.

    Sounds as though you are in a positive position - good for you. Keep it up

    I too have a problem with the scalenot being where i think it should be. I had to retrain my brain to not think of the scale, and look forward to the non scale victories. Keep your head up!!

    Don't compare your path to another's. We all travel at different speeds and duration. You do what you can. That is enough.
