The Little Things

Friday, April 08, 2016

The one thing I want to do on adopting this new lifestyle is to loose weight. It doesn't happen fast enough for me. I want the biggest loser double digit pounds a week weight lose. I am not on the biggest loser though, and no offense to the show,but most of the participants can't maintain or don't maintain their new found weight. They just blow up again. So maybe I just need to stick with my small goals to a better me mentality. I have been doing the spark for about two weeks now. I lost four pounds the first week, but of course me being 260lbs it seems like a small amount down and a gazillion more to go. I have learned to not be so pessimistic though lately. I have tried to notice other things that have changed besides the scale. I have noticed I am not as tired throughout my day anymore. I have more energy. I can walk up a flight of stairs and may only be winded for a second but quickly recover. Before I would walk up a flight of stairs and need about 5-10 minutes just to convenience myself I don't need to call an ambulance. I am more positive about things and look at life less pestimic than usual. I like the woman that is trying to energe out of this shell that is her prison and excuse not to live. So I am going to continue to push on even if it does discourage me that my weight loss is not going at super sonic speed like I want to. The little things make me smile and feel good about myself.

    I totally get what you are saying. I love to think about what it could be like in the future, when I am much more fit, and I hate that it isn't going to happen overnight. When I think about my overall goal weight, it seems SO FAR off. One thing I've been doing lately is to focus on smaller goals -- like, right now I am focused on 15 pounds. Losing 4 pounds is more than a quarter of the way to THAT goal. Maybe this would work for you, too?

    Girl, I understand completely! I'm so impatient when it comes to weight loss. I want my goal body NOW. But that's not how it works. Your attitude is great! I, too, am trying to focus on small changes and making it a lifestyle journey. We can do it!!

    It's really great when you can measure how well you're doing (progress) on your journey by something other than the scale. I really love our positive attitude which is definitely vital on this journey.

    Although I agree with you about your biggest loser comments, I do think that the contestants can get some great information to take with them to use on their healthy lifestyle journey after the show is over.

    Keep doing what you're doing because I have a good feeling that you will definitely be successful in getting where you want to be on your journey.
