So I am down two pounds and am very excited! Maybe it's a subconcious thing but I think scaling myself back to only loosing 1.5 pounds a week vs. 2 pounds really took the pressure off somehow. I realized that if I wanted this change to be perminate it is not going to happen over night and so if it takes me a few extra months to get to my actual weight loss goal, who cares? I have been fat for 10 years- I am willing to carry the few extra pounds for a little longer if that means they will eventually be gone for good. I can't rush a lifestyle change- I need to commit to it. Because bottom line is this process is not just about loosing the weight- it's about learning more about myself and how to eat healthier and live healthier. My ultimate goal weight is 150 and the date use to be 12/31/06 but now it's sometime in April- honestly I am okay with that- because when that day finally rolls around I know that I will be a healthier person regardless of how much I weigh.
