Little By Little...

The children's choir I co-direction is working on a song called "Little by Little". I like the words, because they fit not only for the kids, but for me as I'm making my way through my weight loss journey:
"Little by little, I'm changing, I'm growing.
Little by little, I hope that it's showing.
I'm not who I was, I'm not who I'll be.
I'm somewhere in the middle.
But God is working on me, little by little."

Toward the end of the song, there's a line that says, "Every little step I take, gets me a little bit nearer. I can't wait till the brand new me shows up in the mirror!"

I realized just how true that is. Little steps, little choices, will either take me a step closer to my weight loss goals, or a step further away.

  • getting in 15 minutes of exercise when I don't feel like it will get me one step closer…
  • resisting the urge to give in to a "snack attack" gets me one step closer…
  • sticking to healthy eating gets me one step closer…
  • all those little steps will add up
I've been doing better this week, eating healthier, getting in more exercise, and doing very well on crossing things off my to-do list. Yes, the Christmas present that took up residence in the back seat of my car has finally been mailed. The doctor's visit I've been putting off for months is scheduled. Taxes and FAFSA are done.

Hopefully for my next weigh-in, I won't be having this sort of experience:
