january goal update: weight loss

I wish I could be more excited, friends. I truly do. But I feel like I am just plugging along.

My weight loss has been minimal. Just minimal. But when I look at before and during pictures that I’m taking for the Precision Nutrition-Lean Eating program, I can see that I look different. So I’m just depending on that.

I’m still using my Jawbone Up. And my health and fitness log is just getting more and more colorful.

I feel like I am continuously being tested to stick to my word of the year.

Assured.

When I’m not getting the results I want? I want to give up, run away, start something else.

When I’m not feeling successful enough? I start to question that anything will ever work.

When I do exactly what a program tells me to do but I’m not 110% satisfied? I think I know better and I do it my way.

Nope. Not today.

I did my research. I chose a program that was competent and showed results. I have faith in my coach, my mentors, and the other women in my coaching group.

I just have to believe that the program will work for me. I have to trust the program. I have to just keep at it. Stop questioning. Stop expecting. Just keep going. With faith and determination. And assurance.

I just have to believe in myself. That I have the stick-to-it-iveness to STICK TO IT. I can do this. I will do this. This is mine for the taking.

Because just because it isn’t going as I think it should doesn’t mean I’m not successful.

When I started the program, I was encouraged to pick a goal weight. And it just so happened that I was 52 pounds from my lowest adult weight. And there are 52 weeks in a year. So my goal equals one pound a week. And, on average, I’m hitting that.

I don’t have to be the overachiever. I don’t have to hit my goal early. I don’t have to prove myself to anyone.

I am standing back. I am standing down. I am following directions even though it goes against my nature so hard.

This is part of being assured, right?

  1. Krissie! You say you wish you could be more excited but then you say you’ve been hitting your goal! Why feel “not successful enough” or question that anything will ever work when it’s working exactly to plan? Re-read your post as if it was an email from a client and see it objectively as a coach and I bet you will be more excited!
