Even though I've been doing really well on this program and losing a lot of weight, I still have such a long way to go (60 pounds!) that I sometimes feel overwhelmed. So lately I've been trying to appreciate even the smallest victories. My jeans slid on easily when they were fresh out of the dryer—hooray! I increased my speed on the treadmill by 0.2 mph—whoo-hoo! And when I was walking my dog this morning, a cute guy stopped to pet him—yippee! (Maybe that has more to do with the way my dog looks than it does my slimmed-down physique, but still, any interaction with a hot guy is a plus!) And while none of these successes is necessarily noteworthy, they’re keeping me motivated until I reach my next big weight-loss milestone.
