As I weighed myself this morning, I was happy to see that my weigh is down two more pounds and I now weigh 217! I was thinking of a story I heard as a little girl about the tortoise and the hare and how although the hare was racing fast, it was the tortoise who won the race in the end because he ran slow and steady. I had come to the realization that when it comes to losing weight, it is better to be a tortoise than a hare. By losing weight slowly, this increases your chances of keeping the weight off permanently. I'm enjoying the slow weight loss and can hardly wait for the day when I step on the scale and it reads 200. I just got to keep eating right, monitoring my calorie intake, and exercising and I know I'll get there soon.
