Deciding to do something and committing to it is an important step in reaching a goal, but it is not enough. The next important step is to make some sort of a plan on how you are going to carry out or accomplish what you have decided to do. Without a plan, most goals will usually fail. Why is this? Well, it’s just like going on a road trip without a map. Say, for example, you decide to drive to New York. If you don’t look at a map, you won’t know which route to take, and you will eventually get lost. And once you get lost a few times, you will want to give up and go back home. A plan is like a map. It tells you what route to take towards your goal.
According to the weight chart, I figure I should be at 140 lbs. That is right between the small frame and the medium frame. Perfect weight for me. I look my best when I’m 140-145 lbs. I feel my best at that weight, too. I was that weight before I had Aria, so I’ll get there again. It’s harder this time around, though. My age! I’m blaming my age and the slowing of my metabolism. I used to shed the weight after a pregnancy so easily. Most came off in that first month just from the breastfeeing. But it’s true about what they say once you hit your 40’s — your metabolism slows. I thought it would never happen to me! But it has! Darn!
