It’s That Time of Year Again

I know, it’s been quite a long time, but I’m still here.  2010 is coming to an end and I have been disappointed with myself for the last couple of months.

This year is going to be different!  I’ve dusted off the Slim In 6 DVDs, reconnected with my cousin, the BeachBody Coach, joined a couple of nifty website/forum type sites and got a verbal agreement from my husband to work out with me on a regular basis.  (The written agreement will be hammered out this week.)

What I have learned this year, from my weight loss failure and some attempts at a few new endeavors, is that though immediate gratification is nice, things don’t happen immediately.

I am sure you are just as shocked as I was to realize that…

The strange thing is that I have always been one to put off pleasure – I would wait until Christmas morning to open my gifts while my cousins would tear theirs to shreds on Christmas Eve.  I would make sure everything I had to do was done before I would sit down and eat a meal.  Little things  like that – but when it comes to weight loss (amongst other goals I am setting for myself in the upcoming year), if I didn’t see immediate results in the first 30 seconds – that was it.  I was done!

It may take me  a little while (and a LOT of complaining), but I have faith that I will be able to take advantage of the support system I am creating and reach my goals.  I just need to remember to start small.  Very small….
