I’m about 53 pounds into my weight loss journey and that is a great accomplishment, but I have a long way to go! I have found that thinking about the big picture is intimidating and overwhelming. It helps to celebrate all the little victories and accomplishments along the way to keep me motivated. It is easy to become discouraged when you think about how long it will take and want to throw in the towel. When discouraged sometimes it feels like if you will always be fat then why not eat the foods you enjoy. The truth is my life won’t be better if I give up, so the trick now is to stay motivated!
So, I’m celebrating my victories. My victory this week I already shared. I posted about completing my first week of the C25k app, but that is huge victory for me at the moment. Running really intimidates me. I gave the app a try last year, but had so many problems with my PF and was told by my doctor at the time to let it heal so that I would not need to be put in a boot. I’m still intimidated of it and scared, probably unreasonably so, but I did it. I finished the first week and I am going to keep trying.
What is your NSV this week?
