My first week back: lost 1.2 pounds. Not a big loss, but consistent small losses add up. That is my goal: being consistent in making new good habits and losing something each week. I like the quote: "Progress, not perfection." Sometimes our perfectionism is something that keeps us from making progress. If we can't do something perfectly, we tend not to do it at all. It's kind of an "all or nothing" mindset which isn't good.
I, also, want to make my self talk positive so that I can rid myself of the negative things I sometimes tell myself. I am made for more than this constant struggle with food. I am capable of losing my extra weight and capable (with God's help) to be victorious over this food addiction which has been my drug of choice.
I am so blessed to belong to a circle of friends and family who wholeheartedly support me in this journey to better health. I hope I can pay that encouragement forward.
