The Wizard of "Goal"

How many times have you heard that? If I had a nickel for every time I heard that in my lifetime I’ll be, well out of debt. 

The definition of goal is, the end toward which effort is directed. This doesn’t mean that we can’t change while in the journey. 

The number I selected as my goal weight might change on my way there. All depends on how I feel and look at certain weight. That number is the magic number, you know like in the Wizard of Oz. In the movie the characters had to travel the long Yellow Brick Road to get to the Wizard. Once there they got what they were looking for but not in the expected way. 

The same happens with my goal weight. That is my “Wizard of Oz” (only with my name), and the journey I’m traveling is my long Yellow Brick Road. I know that in the end I’ll get what I want, lose weight. It might be the number I selected or it might be a little different. 

Next time someone asks you “is that your goal?”, say yes very proud and keep working at it. Only you have the power to make it a reality and don’t forget you can modify this number as many times as you like. After all is not written in stone!  Enjoy your weight loss journey and make it fun and memorable.

Although this week I didn’t lose any pounds, in fact I gained a little, I don’t feel defeated like the other times. To the contrary it empowered me to do better and be more careful.

I’m super excited about this new challenge I’m enrolling, the Summer15 Tracking Contest. I found out about it through Twitter, and it’s brought by Plus Size Bloggers

The challenge seems simple, to lose 15 pounds in 12 weeks, but sometimes it could be hard. Life, stress and other things happens and interfere with your progress, but having something to look forward too its a great incentive, – that’s the number one reason that I started this blog.

Let’s see how I do during this challenge, good luck to me! 🙂
