My Progress Report - April 13, 2008

Sunday, April 13, 2008

I love the accountability the website forces you to make. I can actually see where my errors have been in the food distribution department. After two and a half weeks of this I must say I am getting better at this. Water is surely one of the keys. I'm getting in the eight cups now regularly by merely filling up a mug that holds two cups and using sparkling mineral water. Who thought I could get through a case so fast? Simple tricks, good results.

Yesterday, I mapped out "mile markers" for the balance of the year in my day runner. Where I would like to be weight-wise at the end of each month, conservatively estimating a one pound weight loss per week. I made it conservative so if the loss is greater, I will feel that much better. I was amazed at where I would be by the end of December! It's good to have sign posts.

Now to start working on the exercise portion of the program. With the weather getting warmer, there are no more excuses not to do some power walking. Once I get this in regularly, I can advance confidently to Stage 2.

Small steps, big results. What a blessing this site is!


Don't Plan, Do! - April 7, 2008

"Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Addendum (April 28, 2008): When I found this quote, I was delighted, because it reflected what my mother used to say, "Don't!" Now I wonder if this was her source, but I never forgot the words of wisdom it imparted to me, and I still hear it resonating in the caverns of my memory. It wisely reminds me that there is a limit to what we can plan without action. Sometimes we just need to take the plunge and get dirty and just do it.

I have to remember that more often.
