Learning How To Make Progress

By HappySkinnyGirl

I’ve learned not to be perfect when it comes to losing weight but it seems I haven’t yet learned how to make progress. I’m still on ”on and off” mode thinking. For example, I’ve been eating healthy and exercise regularly for a month and then off more than a month doing nothing that contribute to a better health. My focus should be on making progress, I shouldn’t let it go more than a week before I turn my habits around.

I admit I was tempted several time to go back to dieting because I wanted to lose weight fast. I don’t want to yo-yo diet anymore. I need to work on building internal strength and adjusting the internal map and eventually I’ll reach my goal. I think I’m getting closer.

Working out is not my strength but it’s like brushing and flossing my teeth. I need to do that everyday or else my health will decline. Let’s see if I can do this 5 days a week. My target is to make correct healthy choices 90% of the time, and allowing 10% for slip ups. It’s alright not to be 100% perfect all the time.

    great plan and GOOD on the 90/10 as well.

    for me? when I was starting? it was more like 70/30 and that was ok as well!

    MizFit, I’m shooting for the star, if I don’t hit it, at least I’ll land on the moon, right? 🙂

    I totally understand what you mean. Yo-yo dieting is frustrating and useless in the long run. The best thing any of use can do for our bodies is be consistent in practicing good habits.
