3 Years 10 months of maintenance! I am doing it.

I have lost 110 pounds. I have completed three years, 10 months of maintenance and am entering into year 4. Exercise, planning, and healthy eating have become a way of life for over four years. I can do this. I can keep this weight off!

It is time to say I am going to make it this time and keep up my health. I am not returning to sugar, emotional eating, and refined carbs. Bingeing is no longer part of my life.

My Goals:
A decision made about what to weigh is a decision about how to live.

To wake up determined and to go to sleep with satisfaction.

It may be hard, but it is not impossible and I will find a way.
When I lost all of my excuses, I found all of my results.
To decide on a weight is to decide on the life you want to live.

My Program:
Health low carb eating. Exercise and strength training.

6 Keys to Resiliency
1. Accept and face difficult situations head on. Anticipate in advance that challenging situations will arise all the time. Almost every week is marked with a birthday party, unhealthy temptations or busy workdays at home or the office. Be proactive rather than reactive, and plan how you will handle the challenge. Learn more about developing a Plan B to stick to your goals.

2. Believe in your own inner strengths. Take time to remind yourself of past successes in other challenging areas of your life. Identify the strengths you used then, and apply those strengths to your weight loss journey. This is a good exercise to try in the beginning of your journey. Write down those successes in a blog post or a journal. When you start doubting yourself, return to them for motivation.

3. Reframe your thinking. Tell yourself that setbacks are temporary, not permanent. Focus on what is still working, rather than the area where you lapsed. Remind your

R got his CIDP diagnosis 4 months ago and he went from 4 Dr Peppers a day and kids' sugary cereals and all kinds of other sugary non healthy foods, to no more added sugar...right then and there. Cold turkey on things that were obviously not good for him. And he's not going back. I'm amazed that he could do that and he also started eating healthy things that he'd never touched in his life, using spices, and he took up a lot of other healthy habits and hasn't looked back.

So now, as we make more changes, we know that we want to go slow and be sure why we are doing them. But if we find that something is good for him/us, he'll/we'll make the change even if it takes a while to implement it.

This situation is making me healthier too. R has inspired me since he has been the pickiest, junk foodiest guy I've ever known...his thing was just eating junk food and rarely eating non junk food and I never saw a way to change that.

BTW, I'm not at maintenance yet and in the past you had mentioned joining the group before I got there so I could learn what I need to do to maintain. How do I truly know what my healthy weight should be? Before Hashimotos/Hypothyroid problems hit, I was very slender and my head wants me to be the weight again but I'm not sure that was a healthy weight for me.

I was a very competitive runner and triathlete and trained like it was a full time job. I realize that I wasn't truly healthy in a lot o f ways back then even though I was a very fast runner and has success in my races. I think that by letting go of a very unrealistic goal, I'm going to be much better off in the long run.

R's situation has had me thinking hard in a lot of ways and I know he's underweight and it's not a good thing now that he's got an autoimmune disease.
