So, 2017 and in the first few days I have shrunk down and fit into skinnier jeans and it feels GREAT!!!!
I haven’t made a specific resolution for a New Year in a few years. I resolved to allow the journey to go wherever it takes me and to do it all year long.
NO LARGE CHANGE IN A SHORT TIME
Small manageable changes at a time that are easily adopted and not disruptive to my lifestyle.
NO SELF DEPRIVATION OF ANY KIND
Yes, I still eat cheesecake. Just not a whole cheesecake all at once. Recently, I have gotten into the buddy system and as often as possible share one piece with a friend.
Increase in physical activity are also slow and steady. I am feeling better, stronger and I feel improvement in both energy and stamina.
In coffee spoons, not buckets, have I measured out my progress. Genuine slow and steady weight loss that never comes back. I am consistently losing 1 to 5 pounds per month since my slight setback in 2012. My baby steps are about the improvement of overall health and it is working.
Although I have no formal resolution specific to 2017. I resolve to continue on my journey with high spirits and confidence in my fabulousness.
By this time next year, whether my jeans get skinnier or not, I am going to continue to Carpe My Diem. …WITH BOTH HANDS.
