Big Picture!

I was giving advice to a fellow friend and recent weight loss blogger Diary of a Biggest Loser Reject and as my advice was coming out so clearly and made perfect sense I realized I don't ALWAYS heed my own advice. You can't be disappointed by not meeting a specific goal- goals are great to have because they keep us motivated but don't let not reaching one demotivate you or make you feel like you didn't do your best! Always look at the progress you made not the progress NOT made. You have a long journey and even if it goes really slow you are making the journey the right way and creating new habits to last you for your lifetime.
This is going to be a long journey and it is going to take me a VERY long time and I know that. I see all these stories about people losing 80 pounds in 5 months or something crazy and I think I WANT THAT but is it realistic for me? NOPE
And if you ever lived in Texas you know that construction here takes YEARS to be completed haha! I know that my goal is to change my life and to do that my goal isn't just about my weight it is about my habits and my daily routine. My goal isn't to lose 80 pounds in 5 months my goal is to make eating healthy a habit and to make daily workouts a habit and to maintain that for the rest of my life. I am changing who I am not just changing what I look like and the health of my body is more important than the vanity of being "skinny".
If I focus on the first two the third one will fall into place naturally.
