Slacker!

I just found this blog last night. She just hit under 150 pounds, and lost over 100 pounds. The thing that spoke to me about her blog is that we started our weight loss journeys, and blogs at the exact same time. It spoke more to me because she started her blog at almost exactly the same weight I was. She was 254, and I was 252. We both lost 50 pounds at almost exactly the same time frame, we both got under 200 the same week.

Then I did something she didn't do...

I told myself that the next 50 would be so much harder to lose, and let my self slack. She has just lost another 50 pounds and is under 150 pounds, me I lost 20.

I realised she never told herself that it was going to be too hard to lose another 50 pounds in 4 months, so she kept going strong, and she kept seeing great losses. She never gave herself permission to go off plan because people told her how great she looked(oh and she does!!) so kept on losing. She never had to work extra hard one week to lose the weight she gained the previous week, because she never let herself lose sight of the final goal. I did all of those things, and that is why I have only lost 20 pounds in 4 months and she is at my goal!

This motivates me to want to keep going, because if she can I can too. I just wish I found her sooner because maybe it would have helped, but then maybe I would have excuses....I am good at those!

Isn't she awesome! I just gawk at her progress pictures and am totally amazed and yes a tad bit jealous ;-) but she is a great gal and very encouraging!

Yeah I read the blog too! She inspired me! And you do too! You have been losing so consistently all the week. I feel like I have already plateaued and am not losing more than 2 lbs a week :(. How do you manage to lose 10 lbs in a week??

Mindset is everything! I have seen unbelievable differences in 1 person seeing their goal as easily achievable and another expecting difficulty.

She looks amazing and has made great progress. So have you. You can't look back and you can't regret what you didn't do. You can just learn from it and move on.

You didn't lose what you had planned to, but you've learned things that will carry you forward and help you lose it and keep it off.
