More Victories!!!


Every now and then I like to take stock of positive things that are happening on my journey...they keep me going, and lift me up when I'm having a bad day. Here is my latest list of victories:
1. Even more of my clothes that were too tight now fit, with some room to spare!
2. A few of my friends have mentioned that they can tell I've lost weight.
3. My son can hug me even better now!
4. I have had a few people tell me that I inspire them, which is an honor.
5. On the rare occasion that I feel like something sweet, the smallest bite satisfies me...I no longer feel the need to finish off half of the bag or box, or even have "just a tiny bit more".
Don't forget to make your list of victories...they will keep you going when the scale doesn't budge or you miss a workout and need to get back on track. And on stressful days when you would have normally gone to the fast food drive through or the ice cream stand, it will help realize how important it is to stick to your healthy eating plan!
