One day at a time...

That's my new motto!  I can't consume myself with all the days ahead, but need to concentrate on today only.  I'm going to focus on eating good today (no binge eating), and getting in my good workout.  Otherwise, I just overwhelm myself and think I can't do it.  Small steps...that's what I can do!

That's what works for me too. Of course, I can't help but daydreaming about how wonderful I'll feel and look without all the extra pounds, but I try not to think more than a couple of days ahead of time, othewise the task at hand seems completely overwhelming.

I also try to take it only 5-10 pounds at a time...I know I have an 'ultimate goal' but my smaller goals make it seem more attainable.

Oh, I like this way of thinking! Mind if I borrow? That seems to be my problem too is aiming too much at the big picture instead of taking it in small steps. Thanks Darby  for your words of wisdom!!
