If we are going to gain some new perspectives, in order to lose some 'old' weight, we must have some goals in mind.
Every day that you eat wisely and move more, you're accomplishing something to be proud of. (And when you mess up - forgive yourself and start fresh again tomorrow...it's gonna happen now and then!)
DON'T WAIT TO CELEBRATE!
When you applaud yourself for all you're doing, and have done, it's so much easier to keep doing those things.
I enjoyed celebrating every 5# loss with....a (dark) chocolate candy bar that had been given to me..a new shirt, etc. as it was always good to keep that in mind while I was working hard to lose those few lbs. at a time.
Celebrating is very important, because it helps to inspire you to continue doing what you're doing.
Just keep on keeping on....it came on one lb. at a time, and it isn't going to drop any faster either. I really believe the slower you take it off, the easier it is to keep it off.
