Total Weight Loss

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


I had a better day yesterday and so far today I've been good. I hesitate to say too much because, it seems that every time I blog about having it all together, something happens and I have to confess I don't.  ;-D

My motivation now is that I will be on the beach in less than three weeks. The thought of that doesn't strike fear in my heart quite like it did years ago. Partly because I'm older and I've developed an attitude that says "This is who I am, deal with it." The other part is, I know that I can actually do something to improve the way I look. I won't get to my goal in three weeks, but I can get way closer.

Three weeks feels like nothing. Three weeks is no big deal. I can go three weeks without sugar, easy. No white flour, no problem. I'm already beyond the half way point of today, so it is almost already 2 1/2 weeks. Maybe all I really needed was to approach this in smaller segments. I'll do three weeks and then three more, and three more, and three more until I get to my goal. What was it I said about mind games???

Anyway, three weeks from now, I'll be smaller than I am today. That's what matters.


  1. I think it is a great approach! 3 weeks is much more doable and thinkable than a year or a lifetime. And when 3 weeks seems too long, just think about getting through the day or the meal or the next mouthful:)

  2. I agree - great approach! I've just learned also that I need to look at small segments of time - sometimes it's just a meal at a time, other times it's a day at a time, but rarely a whole week or so. I just need to go little by little.
    Reading about going to the beach makes me wonder how many of us on the beach are feeling the exact same way - what a waste, eh?! I don't look forward to it and am self-conscious of it, but determined that I will not live life on the sidelines.

  3. that's it, win the war one pound at a time! i do a variation to get through hard workouts, i'll focus on 5/10 minute increments. i seem to do better witha specific short term goal.......i made it into 32 jeans. now i want to wear an xl shirt (as opposed to my xxl ones) keep it up hon, you're doin great!
