Celebrate the victories!
When we look at the long-term goal, we can get discouraged. When the weight loss is slow, or comes to a standstill, we want to give up.
But if we celebrate every victory, we are encouraged to go onward. Did you workout today? That’s a victory! Declined the diet soda and drank water instead? Hey — you are a winner! Ate the salad and passed up the pizza? Hurrah for you!
Give yourself a boost and pat yourself on the back a little. If you keep encouraging yourself in your healthy habits, you will reach your goal. You will have a life beyond gorgeous — vibrant, healthy and fulfilling.
Eating to live and living for Christ,
