I see you guys have your own challenge on this forum, but I'm wondering if anyone would like to also join mine? I'm setting baby step goals. First goal is only 4 pounds. When I reach that one I will set a new goal for 3 pounds. Then another 3. By the time the 4/3/3 cycle is done we'll be 10 pounds lighter! But I can't look at 10 pounds and say I'm going to lose 10 pounds. It seems too far away. By breaking it down into little tiny chunks, I feel like I can do it.
Anyone can lose 4 or 3 pounds right? It's like cleaning your house. When you look at the whole messy thing it overwhelms you and feels impossible to ever get it clean. But if you set a timer and just do what you can for 15 minutes, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. You say "HEY I did it and that wasn't hard at all! And look how much nicer it looks!"
Same way with baby steps for our weight. "HEY I did it" is nice. It helps me stay motivated! I've already "done it" three times this month alone, and I know it works. I'm ready and determined to meet that next little 4 pound goal.
Do you want to join me?
