Second blog entry of the day! Since my last one, I went to the grocery store, ate the rest of the food I'd planned today, and did 41 minutes on the elliptical at level 8, about 4.5 miles and over 600 calories. Right now I'm having a glass of water. It's funny how I approach food differently when I'm really motivated. I make eating an EVENT where I force myself to slow down, have sips of water between bites, and notice how full I feel when I'm done even if the fullness doesn't last very long.
TMI alert, but I want to keep track of this stuff...2nd TOM since I stopped taking the pill started today. I went back through my blog entries until I found the last one, and it was exactly one month ago - Feb. 8 - 29 days ago. Still, I wasn't expecting it today. I wonder if the time of the month has anything to do with how much willpower I have to stick to my program??
Anyway, as the title of this blog entry suggests, I reset my long-term goals just now on SP. It's set at losing 1 lb per week until I reach 130, which would take me until the end of September. The point is not that I want to lose exactly 1 lb per week, or hitting it by a particular date. The point is that I need to do some long term moderate weight management. Get rid of the ups and downs. Stay consistent with being moderate. Do this long enough and I will eventually be where I want to be.
