Going to relax a bit (a little bit)

Thanks for all your feedback on my last post with my little scale freakout. Damn thing still didn't budge today. But here's the thing...

Obviously, I want to lose the 5.8 lbs in the next two weeks. I want to be below 200 on my birthday. It'll just make me happy and feel very accomplished to hit a great milestone by the time I'm another year older. I want it really bad!

Ok... but...if I don't meet my goal, I will be ok. I will still feel accomplished and happy with how far I've come. Will I really look any different at 202 than I will at 199? No.

I'm still happy with this goal and am going work towards it. Dawn from A New Dawn for Me wrote about the importance of goals yesterday, and quoted a great article, which I love. It said, "if you measure your progress against clear, attainable goals, each defined by a period of time, you will find that your determination to succeed increases tenfold."

No matter what the scale says, I'm still going to stay on plan - eating within my points, no drinking and working out every day. Today I did the Biggest Loser DVD again and 45 minutes on the elliptical, and am so sore! But I guess that's a good thing. Just gunna keep pluggin' away!

Attitude of Gratitude: I'm very grateful that I have lost noticeable weight. I hadn't seen my mom in two months, and when she first saw me, she was like, "Oh my gosh! Wow, you look amazing!" That felt good!

Stay positive & focused. The weight will come off as long as you are both of those things!

I think attitude is a big part of this weight loss game. Being positive about your new lifestyle change is the key. If you only think about all that sugary death you are missing and how hard exercise is, I think the weight comes off slower. Stubborn body fat!

Keep up the good work and good luck on your goal!
