I am feeling confident today that I can go all the way. Now, by "all the way" I don't know if that means all the way to my goal on my ticker, as that's a pretty arbitrary number. Less than 160 would be a healthy weight, and I will be very pleased if I get there. 155 is pretty darn good. 151.5 is the lowest I have weighed since I moved to the States and I know I was happy at that weight and will be again. Under 150 would be awesome. Under 145 would be amazingly awesome, and under 140 would be...stunning. So, really ANY healthy weight and I will have regarded myself as having got there.
And why am I feeling so confident? Well, this is easy, that's why. I am doing really well with my calorie intake. I don't feel deprived at all, which surprises me seeing as I restricted myself more than normal to try to burst through that mini-plateau and hopefully lose a couple of extra pounds before I visit family at Easter. I thought it would be hard, but it isn't. I guess I am now used to eating less, or have figured out what foods fill me up without too many calories and the right amount of protein, fats and carbs. Second, I have been taking it really easy with the exercise this week because I haven't been feeling up to it due to, let's say, hormonal issues. AND due to those same hormonal issues, my weight should be up right now, but it even went down 0.5 lbs today. So I'm hopeful that next week once everything is back on track I will drop some more.
