Twenty pounds in 10 years
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
I'm on a weight plateau ---- since February.
Though now I've come to call it "maintaining." It just sounds more positive. I've resolved that maybe my body just needs to "maintain" at this place for a while --- and then we'll move on.
My DH says not to sweat it. He says, "What if you just lose 2 pounds this entire year? In ten years, you'll be 20 pounds later! That's a GREAT thing!"
Hmmmm? Yeah, I guess he's right. I'm still not buying the 10-year-plan, but it helps me to see that this is not the end of the road. I can live with this weight for now, I guess --- even though it's not my ideal weight. I'm still a lot more active than I was. I still get compliments from people right and left. I still fit into clothes I haven't worn in a while. There are good things.
In a way, this relinquishing of control is a good thing. It's a part of "listening to my body" that I admit I don't do very often or well. Until now. Maybe. Let's watch...
