Move forward with Hope
Saturday, August 20, 2016
So I am more focused than ever... and seeing success for the first time in a very long time. I have hope!!!
I have hit my 10 lb loss goal and am out of the 190's!!! That is a happy day. I have not been out of the 190's for a very long time. I am 188.8... and smiling.
I am trying not to get to ahead of myself, because the dreaming about how much I weigh verses what I think I should be loosing often derails me... so I have focused on tracking, getting my steps in each day, and instead of obsessing over my projected weight loss. I have decided to obsess on where I can get inexpensive key clothing pieces as I go down the scale. What pieces do I need to add to my current collection of smaller clothes at each size?
I separated out all my clothing sizes (ok how many of us have pieces we didn't throw out because we just knew we would get back to them... well I have them also) Luckily I dress classically so most of my clothes can be adapted to dressing in any decade with a few trendy pieces thrown in to update.
The second place I gave myself permission to obsess over was how not to spend too much money as I go down the scale. So I pulled up what makes a wardrobe, what pieces for which seasons, looked at sales and second hand online sources, and the goal is to have key pieces that I can blend with ones that are not too oversized and still look good... creating outfits that work with my life.
ok you get the idea. I think it is a healthier obsessing and should keep me from getting ahead of myself.. LOL.. know yourself and work with it. And continue to move forward with hope!
