I think I’ve finally learned the difference between a wish and a goal. For too many years my plan for losing weight has been, “I wish I weighed less.” No plan, just a wish. The result – I gained weight every year. Finally, after gaining a couple of pounds per year I had to come up with something better than “I wish”. This year I’ve had success because I set a goal and then developed a series of steps to make the goal a reality.
This week I managed to lose a half pound but I’ve been lazy on executing the plan. I’m back to recording food and exercise on Lose It. I don’t want to slack off on techniques that have proven successful. I need to weigh-in, record, and stop wishing if I’m going to make the next goal and keep off the weight I’ve lost so far!
