“We’ve all made mistakes
that seem to lead us astray;
But every time they helped
to get us where we are today.”
Do you have them? Do you set them? Are they S.M.A.R.T goals, as in Specific; Measurable; Attainable; Realistic; and Timely?
I do. I have lots of goals, and eating healthfully is at the top of the list.
So is staying active.
That habit I have, though, of not being hungry when I sit down to supper because I’ve gnoshed my way through the dinner prep? That one I’m not so fond of.
Look. I know it’s not all about the scale. I do believe, objectively speaking, that there is a healthy weight for our body’s frame…and there is an unhealthy weight. Here are two good websites for determining your body frame & weight, with a tip of the hat to my friend Charlotte:
Please, please know my goal is scaling back (ha) what I eat is not just about a number. It’s about overcoming a lifetime of bad habits, and of not turning to food when I should be turning to God.
God and a good, tall glass of ice water.
With those two, I can conquer the world. ; )
“It’s a long and rugged road and we don’t know where it’s headed, But we know it’s going to get us where we’re going.
”And when we find what we’re looking for, we’ll drop these bags and search no more, ‘Cause it’s gonna feel like heaven when we’re home.”
If you want to join me on this journey—be my “diet buddy”, as it were—I would love it! Just leave a comment saying you’re there with me, and I will hold you in prayer. A healthy, happy, active attitude! That, dear friend, is my number one goal.
I can do this! So can you.
Note: I will not be posting photos of my weight, but I have put a ticker on my web site to chart my progress. (This would be the “M” of measurable.) I got the ticker @ My Fitness Pal, HT my diet buddy Therese!
