Lightbulb I figured it out!

Lately I noticed that weight loss became an obsession to me. I'm back on phase 1 of SB, and I'm working up to 2 hours of cardio and 1 hour of strength training 6 days a week. Although I'm not weighing myself, but I'm scrutinizing my body every second of the day, and even watching what I eat in my dreams (definately an obsession, so unpleasant). I'm working hard but I'm just not satisfied with what I'm doing! My family are very supportive, but I'm being myself's worst enemy.

But today I realized something, all this worrying will not quicken the weight loss process, it's just making it more of a burden, something I want to get over with as soon as possible. It finally hit me, time is all I need, such a simple fact! I started 1st of May with the intentions of losing all the weight by end of August, wishing I would reveal the new me at the begining of the next school year. But I gained this extra weight over 10 years, I can't possibly expect to lose all of it in 4 months. By aiming to lose 55 - 70 pounds over the summer, I'm just setting myself up to disappointment!
It takes time, a year or two or even more, but you know what as long as I'm losing weight, I'm a winner !

Good epiphany! I've been there but think I've finally smartened up!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

What a great new attitude! Yep, it took us years to get to where we are, it's gonna take time to take it off... Learn to enjoy the process, the journey itself and relish the small everyday victories...
Good 4 U!!!
