I was reminded today while I was running with Christie and Derek by the Boise River of one of the great things about losing weight and getting in shape.
As I say in my blog title...set a goal and tell everyone who will listen. When I started, the reason I did that is because I would always follow through on commitments to others and I never wanted to let them down. I thought this extra motivation would be helpful. AND IT WAS.
When most people begin a weight loss program the ultimate goal is typically a number on the scale or a size of clothing, I was no exception. But I can tell you from experience that the numbers aren't as meaningful as confidence, self worth, higher self esteem, and the feeling that anything is possible.
