Mentally Preparing for My Future

Sunday, January 04, 2009

As I go through this life changing experience, I am preparing myself for the time when I will maintain my weight. I mentally view this process differently than I ever viewed weight loss in the past. It was always something that had a definite ending -- a certain number was reached and boom, back to eating! This time is different. I see no end to this. There will come a time of change where I may be able to add some calories to my plan and slightly adjust the way I do things, but this has to be forever. It has no end. I will be different. I will live my life differently. You will, too. We will do it together!

    Oh, Jen! I am sooooo there with you...or here...or something like that.

Its an amazing thing to realize that it is all process. All of it. There's no end. There will always be things about our appearances that aren't the way we'd like them to be. There will always be new goals to reach (or should be).

"Back to eating" means something new for me, too. I can't eat the way I used to. Can't and won't. Eating enough doesn't mean eating until I can't eat anymore. Fruits and vegetables have a larger role in my diet. I'm more likely to pick up a clementine for a snack than potato chips. Now that I'm maintaining SP has given me another 200-300 calories/day - that's almost a whole other meal! Yipes!
