I never shared the goals & motivations I've felt comfortable posting on this forum, I knew they'd sound unrealistic or too extreme to my family... the problem with that since then, I think, is that I lost sight of my real goals & motivations... in the beginning I didn't think they were unrealistic, so why should I think so now?.. I've seen how this new & wonderful way of eating works & know that I CAN reach my goals as long as I keep them in sight...
Paddling back out to catch the perfect wave... hugs
Thank you for posting this. I've changed up my goals on paper, but in my head, they're just as strong as they ever were. Maybe I should write them all down and stop erasing!
