Being impatient and trying to lose faster is just a recipe for disaster
When I started up my weight loss journey again in May at 192 pounds after dropping 8 in December 2010, I lost at a rate of around 1.8 or 1.9 pounds a week (I forget exactly, I did the math not too long ago) and I got to my goal weight in approximately seven months.
Seven months to drop that much weight isn't long at all. 2 pounds here and there adds up. If you focus on the immediate and celebrate each time you lose a pound rather than getting upset that you haven't lost more, your weight loss journey will feel so much shorter than it really is.
Because I focused on one pound at a time it seemed like my goal creeped up on me! Time had flew by and I was there already!
