I am in a bit of a precarious spot right now. The weight loss is starting to show and people are noticing and saying how great I look. Some of my clothes that didn't fit before do now. I feel stronger and better than when I started.
So why is this a problem? I feel a little like taking it easy, gliding along and maybe changing my goals to 40 pounds lost instead of 50. My initial goal was 30 and I'm halfway there now. I am only 5 pounds away from being in the "normal" BMI zone.
I don't want to surrender a bunch of mental real estate to these thoughts but simply acknowledge that I am having them and that for now I am going to keep doing what I've been doing and examine the pounds lost question when I get to my initial goal of 30 pounds and not before. Sometimes I mess myself up mentally with a lot of what if's and wondering about what things will be like later.
For now, I resolve to stick with my exercise and nutrition goals because I believe they will serve me for life. That's the beauty of a lifestyle change.
