Goal Missed

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Well, my first goal just passed yesterday. My anniversary came and I still weigh 205 pounds. I am still trying to build healthy habits. It is harder than I expected to get the weight off. How do I feel about this? I am disappointed, but not giving up. Most days I eat healthy and drink plenty of fluids, but I am still building the exercise habit. I need to reevaluate my weight loss goal and decide how important it is to me. Do I want to put out the extra effort it is going to take to lose the weight or am I satisfied with being healthy at 6' and 205 lbs.?

    Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement. I had not intended for this blog entry to sound like defeat. It is more of a reality check. Having lost only two pounds in three months, I am merely reassessing my goals to make them more realistic.

    Hi Melinda
    Saw your blog. Don't get discourage, stick with it. I haven't lost any weight the last couple months either. But I am still tracking my food and reading the articles . I stay encouraged because I haven't gained weight back and I am still trying. Just keep trying to build healthy habits and you can do it.

    Whoa, hold on there. It takes time and a LOT of patience. Allow yourself time to adjust to exercsing and eating right. It is hard; I too struggle. Take it one day at a time. Then when that day is over, start all over again the next day. Keep at it, the weight will start to come off.
