Setting Up Success

Recently I have been pondering why I am making such slow progress on my weight loss journey.  I have an overall weight loss goal but sometimes the overall picture seems to be to big. When you have 100+ pounds to lose it can be hard to stay motivated. I am going to start breaking my weight loss down into increments of 25 lbs. Having something smaller to work towards makes the whole process seem more attainable.

I am going to start food journaling again and planning workouts. Success doesn’t happen by chance so I need to put a plan into motion that encourages me to reach my goals. The whole family wants to vacation in Cuba over Christmas this year and I really want to feel confident when I am down there. I know I won’t have a supermodel body, but that has never been my goal. I want to have a boatload of energy, keep up with everyone and not feel ashamed of my size. I will get to this goal 25lbs at a time. I will never be this fat again.

    I think smaller goals are smart! That’s one thing I was struggling with. As a fellow person with 100+lbs to lose, smaller goals make me feel like it’s more attenable. Once you hit that first 25lb, you’ll feel great. Before you know it, you’ll be at 50, then 75, then 100! You can do it, I know you can. I believe in you and wish you good luck!
