November 20, 2008
It's been 7 weeks since I reached my goal to lose 25 lbs. I've maintained so far. it has only been through my commitment to tracking my food and activity that this has been possible. Oh, yeah, and the amazing support from my SparkTeam-mates. I am constantly inspired and humbled by the postings and blogs I read everyday on SP. "At Goal and Maintaining" has the most amazing members. People who have maintained in spite of some very adverse conditions. The one key factor, of course is "never give up" Even when I "slip up" I'll be okay just as long as I don't "give up." I'm also setting some new small goals for myself. For the next two weeks (two weeks, I can do anything for two weeks) I pledge to eat deliberately and mindfully. I can do that. And if I do 2 more weeks, then two more weeks, then two more weeks... you get the picture, it's going to be October 1, 2009 and I'll have maintained my weight for an entire year. That's about 11 months longer than I ever have before. All I have to do is never give up.
