I went to see Jenny the nutritionist today. It was the first visit after the holiday. Always when I go there is a weigh in and today was no different except that I can really see how much weight I lost on holiday. It said that I lost 7lbs which I am really happy about.
We also talked about goals
Back in January when I saw Jenny for the first time, she asked me about my goals and what I wanted to achieve. I remember saying that I would love to have the energy to spend more time with the kids, not to feel so tired all the time. I wanted to improve my health and I wanted to lose 70lbs for my Dads 70th birthday in October. These were my long term goals all of which I have achieved except the 70lbs. However that goal has now changed and I have increased it to 100lbs. I have also added climbing Mount Snowden by the end of the year.
The long term goals seem so overwhelming and out of reach sometimes that I have to set myself a lot of short term goals – the next one being to get under 18st (and under every stone as I come to it) then to lose 50lbs (or every 10lbs) then to lose 4 stone (or every stone that follows). These are nicely spaced so I can usually accomplish at least one of these every week. It is these short term goals that keep me motivated and without them the long term goals seem too far away.
