Yay!

Good news on the scale this morning. I lost 1.3 pounds this week. Yay! I was actually expecting a slightly bigger drop but I am retaining some water now and expecting the dreaded monthly visit soon so I have high hopes that next week will show some good numbers as well. It’s 1.3 pounds in the right direction and that’s a healthy weight loss in 7 days!

These days (thanks to a pep talk from Marco0 I’m trying extremely hard to keep myself focused on smaller goals and it seems to be helping. Instead of thinking “I’m 40 pounds from my goal” I’m trying to think “won’t it be great when I see 105 (kilos) on the scale (I’m 109.3 now). Keeping my eye on the little prizes along the way really help me from being overwhelmed by the larger task that lies ahead.

I think the idea of smaller goals is a good one.

Hey hey hey! Look who's kicking some diet butt? That'd be SARAH!

The smaller goal thing is fabulous too...it's the only way to keep myself sane. If I told myself, "Self, you need to lose 100 pounds," I'd lose my motivation, oh, about now...

Instead I've made it a game, "Self, let's get out of these numbers and into the next decade down..."

That's how I see it anyhoo!

Keep up the great work!

A good idea. I too am focusing on just the next kilo, instead of the 30 I have to lose. You are doing great!
