There is this great feeling of satisfaction when I achieve a small goal. Small goals really help so much because they are doable and they all add up. Small goals help me to feel so much more confident about what I’m doing. I wanted to roll over 4 points today and I did!
Want some free unsolicited advice? I think it’s important to build yourself up not beat yourself up. Changing my lifestyle was not an easy undertaking. I have some stubborn habits and stress reactions that are not helpful when it comes to either weight loss or maintenance. Sometimes my choices set me back and I’m learning to just let it go when that happens. A bad day doesn’t mean I’m going to revert back to all those unhealthy habits. Just as a good day doesn’t mean I’m totally in control.
I’m starting to think there will always be an ebb and flow to living my life on maintenance. I realize that may sound obvious. However, accepting that intellectually is very different than real life consequences of the thing. I am going to be a work in progress forever. Really though, if we are lucky, aren’t we all?
