Motivation Monday – Baby Steps, And It’s Working. 7


Motivation Monday – Another Monday, another weigh in, another measurement session … and another success!

This week there was another 1/2 inch gone from my waist, another 1/2 inch gone from my thighs, and another 1/2 pound gone on the scales.  Do we see a pattern developing here?  😉

It’s been so good to see a steady decline in the scales and in the tape measure.  It would be nice if things were coming off more quickly, but I have heard that when you lose weight and inches slowly it tends to stay off longer, and not return so easily.  I am counting on that to be the case.  It’s taken awhile to gain it, so it stands to reason that it should take awhile to lose it.

I’m just glad that the weight is coming off!

I was reading an article over the weekend about the danger of fat around the midsection, and how carrying your weight there puts you at risk for diabetes, heart disease and all those other scary health problems.  I already have a history of diabetes in my family, as did my husband.  My weight didn’t always hang out around my waist, but I have noticed that over the years it has migrated to that vicinity.

That’s why it’s so nice to see it coming off there in a nice, steady manner.

So how are you doing on your journey, if you are attempting to get healthy and lose a little weight like me?  What is the hardest part for you?

Comment and let me know so we can share stories and encouragement.  Have a great week!

    Congratulations! It’s so nice to see those inches come off. I’m nine days into my diet and my hardest times are when I’m tempted when going out to eat or at a friend’s house. I try to bring my own snacks along and that helps.

      Thanks, Tif! I checked out your blog as well, and am now following you.
      I appreciate your comments – I have trouble, too, when it comes to going out to eat. That isn’t much of an issue at the moment, since we don’t have the money to be going out to eat much. 🙂
      I bring my lunch to work, and that helps me. I seem to have more willpower (and common sense) in the morning, so I am able to pack a nutritious lunch and snacks for me to eat through out the day. My worst time of temptation is at night. 🙂

      Thanks so much! It is a real boost to be seeing some positive movement like this. There have been lots of stops and starts along the way, and it feel so good to see consistent changes happening. 🙂

    hey lady, baby steps then you crawling then you walking like a hot mama! 🙂 Ok I have not measured in i think like two weeks. I think I’m depressed in not seeing any of my lower half lose any inches and thats where my problem lies. My fitness nutrient blogger friend told me, just keep working at it and I would eventually start seeing it shedding off smh. Maybe next Monday I’ll measure. But standing ovation to you on fitness well done

      Thanks, Camii! Don’t give up, and hang in there. It’s been a long, hard road for me … lots of stops and starts, and detours. But I seem to have found some momentum that is helping me push through. You will see it happen, just don’t give up. 🙂
