Progress takes time and baby steps count.

Sunday, October 21, 2018


Progress takes time and baby steps count.


"I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him."-Eleanor Roosevelt


What do I want to gain as I continue my journey to my goal: lower blood pressure (get off medicine), healthier cholesterol levels and more physical stamina. Improving my self-esteem and body image is also a plus.


One of my ongoing goals is positive self-talk. Here's a reminder why.

"Watch your language. Licensed psychotherapist Eliza Kingsford says it's important to be mindful of the negative messages you are giving yourself if you are having a bad day, and to replace them with kinder, gentler ones. “I look so fat in these jeans” might become “I choose to be kind to myself exactly as I am, even as I am working toward changing my shape." Never speak to yourself in an unkind manner, even if you don’t believe the positive words just yet."-Melissa Rudy

I have now removed 48 pounds and the last time I measured showed I had removed 8 more total inches. This is by taking baby steps, staying accountable and deleting the term deprivation from my lifestyle. It's all about portion control and moderation. There are no "good" or "bad" foods. There is simply food and how I consume it is up to me.


*******Re-set, Re-adjust, Re-start, Re-focus...As many times as you need to.*******

I hope you had a sparkling Saturday.
