I am personally trying to focus more on the positive and let go of the negative. I had a comment about being hard on myself, which was nothing I hadn’t heard before. But. maybe it was the last time I needed to hear it. I’m not saying I’m suddenly perfect or anything, but I am consciously trying to not be so hard on myself. Part of that is celebrating tiny victories! So I want to know what you did RIGHT today?
What I did right was staying on my calorie goal and remaining under for the day. See, instantly I thought of something I should have done differently today, but NOPE, I’m shutting those thoughts down! Focus on the positive!!!!
So I am going to mark this day down as a “win” in my book! This week is looking pretty good to me!
I can only take it one day at a time. When you have such a massive amount of weight to lose, it’s easy to get overwhelmed or discouraged by slow progress. But, slow progress is better than NO progress! Which, I’ve dealt with off and on the last few weeks. I’ve been a bit of a yo-yo on that front. Gaining, re-losing, re-gaining, etc.
But, today I did good. And as a matter of fact, yesterday I did well, too. So that is 2 good days this week! I may only be down a lb or two this week, but at least it will be heading in the right direction. I’m not going to lose 9lbs in a week, like I did that first week, probably ever again. That was a drastic change and a fluke, I think. But, the way I’m going to do this is by losing 1-2 lbs a week, every week, for the next 10 months.
So- I’m waiting to hear about your tiny victories today!
