Okay, so I’ve been all gung ho for this weight loss. I’m doing my plan, I’m fitting in as much exercise as I can; you know the shpeal. Anyhow, I’ve had an Ah-Ha moment. because you see, I’ve been telling myself, “Self, in a year, you’re gonna be so skinny!” which in all reality is not going to happen.
Now please don’t tell me how I’m wrong and how I need to be positive and all that. I AM being positive. I’m also being realistic.
Realistically, I think I could lose 30 pounds by next Christmas. Realistically, it’s probably going to take me 3 years to “lose it all” I didn’t get to this weight in a day. Shoot, I didn’t get to this weight in a year! So I’m changing my goals.
Do I want to be skinny? Eventually. Right now, I’m working on healthy. I want to be happy. I know that my whole lifestyle needs to change. Unfortunately, I can’t snap my fingers and make that happen over night. In all reality, I wouldn’t, because I have a feeling that I’d end up back in the fluffy place.
At any rate, my new goal is to be realistic, and that means, slow and steady. Ah-freaking-Ha.
