I've been sitting at 200 for a little while now. I think its interesting that I am having a plateau at a significant point in my weight loss journey. Going below 200 pounds is a momentous occasion that I have been looking forward to for a long time. I have not been below 200 pounds for at least 20 years. I have been anxious about breaking this barrier, Now I am thinking I should relax and "enjoy" this part of the journey and not rush through it. I have been looking at ways to break the 200 point. I have been changing up my exercise and calories and nothing has changed. I am not discouraged, in fact I really do find it interesting. I think maybe this is a point where I need to let my mind catch up with my body. I don't know if I am emotionally ready to go below 200.
This weekend I am spending time with 5 of my best friends at our cabin to celebrate my turning 63. This is the 4th year we have done this and we usually have celebrated with amazing food all weekend. This year I asked my friends to help me plan a healthier weekend. We each prepare one meal and I have asked everyone to prepare a healthful meal. We are also bringing fitness stuff...DVD's, exercise equipment. I think we will have a lot of fun. I think I will take this weekend as a time to enjoy a healthful lifestyle without a weight loss focus. I will enjoy and hopefully grow in my comfort with healthful moderate eating and with my body as it is now.
You will all be there with me in my heart, my dear Spark friends.
