Weightloss Goals That Set You for Failure
July 26, 2015

You know I love goals. Goals carry us through when the going get tough and the tough get going in regardless of what we do.
In lifestyle change focusing on that magic number has caused me more grief than I don’t know what over the years. It’s lead to yo-yo dieting, feelings of guilt and shame when I did not reach my goal and worse going back to my old ways my old patterns when I gained back. I’ve had lofty weightloss goals in the past and that has only led to feelings by being overwhelmed and little by little fall off track and eventually off program #notagoodlookforadiva
In short I ended up getting completely frustrated and ended up quitting. #flybyjuly is about shifting focus from the scale to being healthy! There are so many benefits beyond the scale that we get from working out I have so much more energy I feel beautiful and strong. I am proud of my body.
Once I shifted my goals to health goals it has been a complete lifestyle change years in the works but little by little I’ve changed my food choices I am more aware of what I put into my body and understand the value of proper nutrition. I started my wellness journey officially 5 years ago I am no where close to were I want to be but I am getting there progress makes more progress 🙂
If you still have the urge to get ” Skinny ” why not shift your focus to a dress size instead of weight because weight goes up and down when gaining muscles from working out so don’t be so hard on yourself dear diva!
Once I started to feel my clothes fitting a bit loser it has given me motivation to keep going.
