New Year - New Chance to Change

Friday, January 01, 2021

Like you, my beginning is far worse than where it was last year. Also, like you I am not done yet. My intent is to set little goals (daily) but not beat myself up if I don't achieve those goals. Self-admonishment only leads to more failure and giving up. I am focused on the little things because the big things are overwhelming.

My favorite words of advise to my children involve eating an elephant. I tell them they if I say they can eat an elephant, they should believe me. They don't have to eat the whole elephant in one sitting. Eating a piece at a time rather than trying to swallow it whole works wonders.

The same applies to weight loss. Making a change a day, week, etc. goes farther toward achieving the weight loss goal than going full blast and getting discouraged!
