Hey there!

I've been tricking myself with the ticker since I joined. 226 is no where near my end goal, but seeing the ticker close to the end really keeps me motivated. I've been knocking of 10 to 15 lbs from the ticker every two months or so.

I completely agree with you about the progress being part of this whole process! That is such a great job - you are going to do so well!

I am so glad that you have your mom as a point of inspiration in your life. I am trying to inspire my mother...heck, I am trying to inspire my whole family!

Good luck and drop me a line sometime!

Take care,
Juliana

Welcome to the team!

LOL I trick myself like that every time I go to work out. "Man, after I get this done I'll be in such awesome shape..just 20 more minutes." I know I'm lying and have a long way to go, but it gets me through it.

This is a great team! You'll do great!

Yeah, I know my weight ticker is deceiving, but 60 pounds is easier to handle at one time than twice that. I'll reassess once I get to where I need to be. You know... trying to mentally trick myself into believing I don't have to go as far as I really do... does that work?

ANYWAY! My main reason to try to lose weight is because I want to be like my mom! She used to be heavy, and she's taken the past fifteen years and transformed herself from a dumpy mommy to a triathlon-training, 7k-running, bike-touring, gym-a-holic. She looks AMAZING, and I know she feels better than I do... and I'm thirty years younger. She's a real inspiration.

I'm really lucky that I figured all this out at 24 instead of at 40. The thing to keep in mind is that the goal isn't as important as we make it out to be. In the process to getting to where she is now, my mom had a lot of fun as she became able to do more stuff, like hiking, backpacking, and cross-country skiing. Even now, while she's running races and training for triathlons, she still says she's not quite where she wants to be. I think that's a lesson that we all can learn - ALL progress is good, even if it does take us a while to get to that elusive "end point." :)

Hope everyone has a super day!
