I am learning to celebrate small successes. It’s a good thing because every success deserves to be celebrated, and because I really struggle with saying, finding and accepting good things about myself.
So let’s celebrate the fact that I’ve lost 12 pounds since I started modifying my eating habits.
I am also celebrating the fact that I have started incorporating more movement in my life. I have a fitbit zip, and I am using that to track my steps. What’s more important is that I am not berating myself if I don’t make 10,000 steps a day. Instead I’m celebrating because i am MOVING.
I am also celebrating the fact that I have not had ANY crystal light since the end of March. This is HUGE. I’m drinking water with mint leaves in it. Not as yummy, but I’m learning to like it.
I also have stopped drinking regular tea. This is NOT a forever stop for me, but it is a for now change until I drop some more weight, because while tea itself isn’t bad, the milk and sugar I use isn’t what I need right now.
I have a goal – when I lose my first 20 pounds, I’m going to get a new fitbit – i was thinking about the flex, but there are a lot of negative reviews. I’m wondering if it is worth it to spend the extra money to get the better one.
I’m pretty proud of what I’ve accomplished health wise so far…I still have a way to go, and that’s okay. I will get there, but today is for celebrating how far I’ve come.
