Don’t wait until you reach your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of yourself with EACH step you take toward reaching that goal. With every step you take and with every mile that you conquer you grow stronger and more skilled, but more importantly you’re staying on the track toward your goal. Too often, we see only what we have not yet accomplished, instead of how far we have already gotten. Remember that every step you take toward reaching your goal is a success and moves you closer to your destination. Weight loss takes time so don’t look for immediate results because your body is work in progress. Rather than beating yourself up and putting yourself down because you’re not there yet, celebrate the smaller milestones you reach as you climb the stairway to success. The journey may be a long and bumping road but believe me it is worth it every step, every move, every jump… If you take no steps at all, nothing will ever change. But as you do take action, you progress. Have in mind that weight loss is about progress not perfection. Realize the importance of small effort and take a moment to pat yourself on the back for yet another lost pound.
Wishing you all a great Tuesday!
