Dieting — A Plan To Take It Five Pounds At A Time
Posted by Catherine Morgan on May 14, 2007
After being sick for several weeks with my asthma, I found (as I aways do), that I have gained some weight. Since I was already somewhat higher than what my “ideal” weight is, the extra pounds are really bothering me. I also have a big BlogHer Conference coming up in July, and I really want to try to look (and feel) my best. I usually don’t like to “diet”. Usually I like to just change my eating habits and the weight loss simply follows…and this is usually all I need to do to be successful.
But, since I am blogging anyway, I thought I might have more success if I did as I have seen other bloggers do. Many put their diet goals on their blog, and keep readers updated on their progress. From what I have seen, this strategy seems to work well. I am especially impressed with my online friend “TotalTransformation“, and today when I checked out his site I found something very interesting. It’s a weight loss “ticker”, that can be put on your blog to keep track of your progress. Just what I need.
This is what I am going to do. I believe small goals are the best. Because, whenever you meet a goal you feel good about yourself, and when you feel good about yourself, it is easier to meet your goals. So, along with following my healthy eating plan, I am going to Take Five Pounds at a Time. I’m not making a larger goal. Instead I will meet my five pound goal by taking one day at a time. When I meet my goal, I will assess my need to continue (based on how close I am to my “ideal” weight, how I am feeling, and my medical condition). If I decide to continue, I will set another goal of five pounds. And so on.
I will also ad the weight loss “ticker” from tickerfactory.com to my blog, and I will give updates on my success periodically. In addition, I will post other blogs or sites that are devoted to healthy eating and dieting, that I find helpful. Starting with, The Diet Pulpit…I like this site a lot.
So, this is it…Five Pounds at a Time…starting today.
