Ho hum. That is the attitude to my 0 pound weight loss. I have to watch out for my ho hum attitude because this always happens around 8 weeks for me when I'm trying to lose weight. I can make it two months and then I let things slide.
I love the results I am seeing - my oval government worker hips/butt is going away, my energy level is high, I fit into some of my old clothes again, and I feel strong. I am afraid of reverting back to old habits, becoming sloppy and suddenly waking up and all the weight is back on. I am conscious of what I am doing and know that I'm not going back but I think I'm afraid both of going back to where I was and also of where I am going. Does that make sense? I don't want to sabotage myself. I don't want to revert back to old habits.
TOM doesn't help with the attitude, motivation or munchies! At least now I am tracking this and know when it is coming and why I'm feeling/doing what I'm feeling/doing. I need to think of some ways to mitigate the continued need for munching - I've been trying gum but that only works so long. Or, I may need to just be okay with having a ho hum week every month?
1.Continue with the strength training and do more of it.
I did start strength training last week so met that goal but I need to do more. Love feeling muscles that are reactivating . They are a little angry with me for waking them up, but they'll get over it.
2. Refocus my efforts on eating well - more whole foods and less processed. Staying within my calorie range, and eating less sweets. (I eat too many even when staying in my calorie range.)
I am proud of myself for what I have done, and will continue to move forward with love and positivity!
