I am ALMOST at goal. I came within half a pound but then slid back up. Its OK because I set my goal so that I had a range to stay within and I have, which feels good with everything that has been going on. I do want to see the scale hit that number just for the psych boost and that is keeping me going right now.
It has been a really hard few weeks, especially last weekend and this week is going to be just as bad. Trying to remotely stay on track when you are stuck in another town in a stressful family situation and eating out non-stop is pretty close to impossible. I am just happy I didn't completely blow it. Which brings me to my good habits - and how I really have changed my life. In the past I would have just given up and not even tried to eat healthy, or felt guilty. This time I did make some efforts and did keep a head count on where I was. When I made bad choices I was fully aware of what I was doing, but I knew I could - and WOULD - get back on track. More importantly, I really made the effort to get some exercise in. By no means did I get my usual, but I made it a priority and worked to get something in, which is an amazing change for me.
So where do I want to be? Really, I want to stay about where I am. I just want to keep going - to work this maintance thing and keep this great new figure. I want to work my abs to find my curve again (who knew you could lose 50#s AND lose your curve?). I also want to work on my flexibility. I want to make better use of our Y membership and get that confidence up to take an aerobics class. And I want to hike this summer. Those are my goals.
