Arrow Rolling along

So jumped on the scale this morning and lost .4lb since yesterday now this is very exciting and I did the math really fast in my head, I know eventually the weight loss is going to slow down and/or stop, been here done this before..anyhow I should feel elated but I am discouraged because I know a good thing like this doesn't last.. but I will keep moving forward and making healthier food choices..have a great day everyone

Yogi Berra said, "Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical."

I think that is so true of weight loss.

The physical is obvious -- you've got to create that calorie deficit. But I think that's just part of it. You've got to BELIEVE you can do it. You've got to KNOW you have what it takes to make this commitment and follow through on it.

I won't bore you with the details of my weight history. Suffice it to say, I've spent far too many years believing I could not get to the weight I'm at now. Big bones, I told myself. Broad shoulders. Big quads and glutes. Three kids. Too big a girl to get that low.

BULL!

I made a mental shift, and I achieved my goal faster than I imagined possible. But first I had to BELIEVE and then I had to COMMIT. But all those years I told myself negative things, that I couldn't lose the weight, that I couldn't maintain the loss... it's all a self-fulfilling prophecy. I didn't believe in myself, and I made those bad things come true.

You can do it! Believe in yourself!
