Great thought - well expressed Natasha!
Just the other day I made a similar point to a friend.
I said even though my goal was to lose 87 kilos - that was the background.
My main aim was doing my best each day to make my weigh in weight number lower than the day before.
Every day I would record my weight in my book and next to the number write the difference from the day before.
If the number was higher then I put a star next to it. If there was no change I would underline the .0 - and let the number stand alone if it was a loss.
I would record each month on a new page and note my weekly weigh ins that fell in that month on the page.
Even today I still record my daily weigh ins.
It is amazing to look back and see how all those little 100 grams added up until finally they had me at goal weight.
My weight loss results were never spectacular.
I never had one of those "Biggest Loser" weeks but by just keeping keeping on I made it.
Small sure steps are better in the end than big erratic ones.
