No more promises
Friday, February 22, 2019
It's been 1-1/2 years since I was active on Spark. I am the highest weight I have ever been. I want my kick@$$ fit body back from 8 years ago. I look at the pictures and I mourn the loss of that person I worked so hard to become when I lost 100 pounds. She's still in there! I want her to come out and shine again. :)
A lot has happened in the last 537 days...I have opened up my own (successful) business. I'm continuing my education to enhance my practice. I have made new friends and lost some old ones. I have an Australian Shepherd who will be 1 on St. Paddy's Day! My three GSDs are still going strong and making me nuts. :)
I have set some short-term goals. I'm not promising myself to "get it right" the first time. I'm just doing the best I can from moment to moment. I need to be forgiving with myself but I also need to be "tough love." I'm just doing three weeks of trying to eat whole foods. Three weeks of cutting back the garbage. Three weeks of actual persistent effort that shows a positive curve.
I would like to be under 200 pounds by fall, but for now, I would like to be under 250 by the end of 3 weeks. That's just 1 pound a week. I can always up my game later once I get some momentum going. I need to stop putting the pressure of my awesome weight loss in the past on my present effort. This is a new challenge and new experience and I need to be adaptable. :)
