2011 Is So Yesterday!

I think my motto for 2012 is going to be "Believe"!  Believe in God.  Believe in yourself.  Believe in your plan.  Believe you can accomplish your goals.  It all starts with believing, at least that's true for me.  I've been coasting for the past 6 weeks, but it's time to step it up.  I have to because I want to accomplish all of my goals, not just the first 30 pounds.

I'm going back to the basics, well sort of, by writing down a nutrition plan as well as an exercise plan.  That worked for me really well in the beginning.  I love coming up with the vision myself (I'm such a rebel) ;), working out the details, and using discipline to stick with it.  That's what it's all about with me! In the beginning I'd say, "I can stick with my plan today.  I can do this for one day."  Then I'd do it again the next day.

I'm facing some challenges in the next few months, but day by day I'll get there.  I'm confident of that.  Can you tell I'm exciting about the new year? I love new beginnings and thinking about today and the future.

Well it's really late here on the east coast, so I better not get too excited or I won't be able to sleep ;).  That would happen to me in the beginning, I would feel so passionate about all I was going to accomplish and what it would take to get there, I couldn't get to sleep until 3 or 4 am.  I love passion; life would be so dull without it, don't you think?

Tell me:  What's the top 1 or 2 things that have contributed to your weight loss success?

Well, goodnight everyone and Happy New Year.  I send my wishes for a happy, healthy new year, may all of your dreams come true!  

Have a great 1st.

  1. Happy New Year Cat!!! The top things that have contributed to my success are all blog friends who have helped keep me accountable and who have taught me alot. And giving up flavored coffee creamer & drinking hardly any beer.

  2. Happy 2012 Cat. I'm happy for you, and you have so much to look forward to.
    #1 to my success has been our blogging community. Having support & feeling that support is KEY.
    #2 Recognizing through experience how addicting some foods are. For me it's sugar & breads. I feel and look better limiting those.

  3. Hello Cat and Happy New Year.
    For me it was never giving up and all the support I get from our little Blogging community.
    Have a great day :-)

  4. My two top things that have contributed to my weight loss success are believing I could do it and strict tracking of my food intake.

  5. Most definitely #1 secret to my success has been perseverence. Getting to goal this time is NON NEGOTIABLE!!!
    #2 Belief in myself that I can do anything that I set my mind to doing.
    YOuve had a great year! Heres to a fabulous 2012!!!!

  6. The things that have helped me to achieve my weight loss goal was prioritizing my food. What were the things I was not willing to give up, and how can I keep them and stay within the BFC plan. I know that you aren't strict BFC, but for me, it is a lifetime winner.
    The second thing and probably more important is our little blogging community. It feels so good to share successes and feelings. At each stage of our lives we have people that are special to us, at this stage, I am blessed!
    Have a wonderful 2012 and stay sane! You are taking on a lot!!!

  7. Happy New Year Cat. Hope it's a great year for you and that you accomplish all your goals. Bighugs from me to you!
