Seven Months and One Week

For seven months and one week I have been on my weight loss/healthier me journey.  It has taken me seven months and one week to lose 25 pounds.  It took me 7 weeks to lose my first 7.6 pounds.  And it took me 5 months to get to 20 pounds.  My point is slow and steady wins the race.  Think of the tortoise and the hare.  The hare thinks he is going to beat the tortoise because he is fast.  And what happens is the hare runs out of steam and has to stop.  The tortoise keeps plugging along.  And that is what we need to do.  Just keep plugging along.  If we take off at full speed we will quit before the race is over. 

Me in Feb.2010 and Me presently.

Where do I want to go to...?
This is my virtual model.  In 15 pounds it will be me, and I am going to rock the skinny jeans!!  

Come back on Friday to learn how to visualize success and start planning for the holidays before they get here!

I've always believed that the slower you lose the easier it is to keep it off.
Congrats on the nice losses :)
