Reaching Our Goals Takes Time . . . And That`s OK!

On January 5, 2016 I saved this picture as my screensaver on my phone...and I posted it on Instagram to declare my goal of getting back to this healthy weight.

Was I at the weight I wanted to be? No, I actually thought I needed to lose another 10 pounds. Crazy right?? I am pretty positive it was the negative self talk that led me to stray from my new healthy lifestyle....and to a 15 pound weight gain.

So the question is, am I back to my svelte self? Nope, I'm not. I can honestly say I haven't even lost 1 pound...but some of my clothes are a bit looser so I know I'm losing inches. And guess what? That's OK you know why? Because I know that I am working toward the goal of being in great shape again and it will happen when it happens. If I did it before....I can do it again! I think the key is to not be so hard on ourselves all the time.

Change takes time. We might not like it, but the key is to not be so hard on ourselves all the time!

The last couple of weeks I have started working out more consistently and I've upped my portion control game too. I know that I`ll get to my step at a time. Cheer's to a fabulous April!
