I started work on this last night, but got distracted. I guess you can call an elevated argument with your better half a distraction. I can tell you this much: it sorta consumed all my attention. 😀 In case you are wondering; yes, we resolved our differences. We never leave a fight to fester — you do that and things could ROT. YUCK! I don’t know about you, but I don’t like rotten things, but I do LIKE Mikey a LOT–even when he makes me angry. 😀
Ahhh …. Such is life.
NO, I am not going to wax poetical … this really is gonna be a Walk down memory lane with photo evidence.
Starting Weight with Donna: 263
Starting weight OptiFast: 255
Today’s weight my scale: 171.8
What’s my goal — it is changing right now, because I am not sure I want to stop at 150. Why? Well, we know I gain weight when I lift, and I plan to lift, so I am thinking of dropping down to 135-140 to allow for the adjustment of eating more food, fats, and building muscle. I think the whole just making it to 150; then, I bounce back up to 160 or so from weights training will flip me out. So I want some wiggle room. I will weigh that out as I get closer to my original goal of 150.
Stole that idea from Grumpy
That’s all of the fashion for for today. This is what I do to encourage myself when I don’t feel like I can see the change or things are not moving well enough for me. I go back and photograph the changes — sometimes it is easier to see the changes when you take a picture. It really helps my mood to look back and rejoice over how far I have come.
What do you do to encourage yourself to press forward with your goals (whether they be weight loss or some other goal) when you have set backs? How do you keep yourself motivated? What makes you get up off the sofa/bed and get moving forward again?
Waiting to hear your motivational tools. 😀 …S
