Also, last month, I decided that my weight loss method of thinking really hard about losing weight while sitting on the sofa, snacking, was not working for me and I needed to try something else.
The problem with weight loss was I would look at the amount I wanted to lose and think I could never do it. It would take months. It would be hard. It would require constant vigilance and attention on my part.
Hmm, a lot of the same things I thought the first time I did NaNoWriMo.
And sure, writing 50,000 words or losing x number of pounds might seem insurmountable at the start. But what I decided is I couldn't only concentrate on the big numbers.
In NaNoWriMo it was a matter of getting those 1667 words a day.
For losing weight it was a matter of keeping my calorie count low, one day at a time.
So, how'd I do?
I wrote 50,000 words in less than a month. And I lost ten pounds (so far, I'm not done dieting yet).
What once seemed impossible, is now within my grasp. So, take that first step - you never know where it might lead you!
