We Need to Re-define *GREAT*
Posted by: delitaagain In: Lessons Learned
As in: you are doing GREAT!!
How many times have I read posts in diet-blogs bemoaning the lack of weight loss while recounting the many right choices, diligent walks or workouts, or worse, life tragedies successfully navigated.
We need to re-define *great* from seeing the numbers we like to congratulating a job well done: choices made, little decisions and follow-through in spite of a sometimes un-budging scale.
If you got up today and made choices on food, exercise, life - based on what is good for you and the goals you would like to achieve - you are doing GREAT!! Whether or not the scale shows it yet.
And I hope you recognize that about yourself and others, and give an encouraging word and a pat on the back for successful choices and right behaviors, not just number results. Results are one reward. Good choices and actions *are* the GREAT achievements.
