“Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right.” ~ Aldous Huxley
When you’re setting weight loss or maintanence goals, you’ll attain them with less effort and longer stick-to-itiveness if you chunk the big picture down to daily, small and doable portions. This brings the ceiling down more often and ‘walking on your “new normal” and accomplished floors’ toward your next level of your big picture goal.
Research shows that setting small, short-term goals — that can be achieved and built upon — is more important than a number on a scale.
You can get on it, you can check it when and if you like, but don’t make yourself crazy looking at numbers on your scale. You’ll keep seeing “what isn’t” and getting discouraged. Do-the-doing of the small, daily tasks and goals that should and will “naturally” get you there from here. Then, dance on the ceiling! Ahhh, Lionel!
