OK, I promised myself that I would be in One-derland by Jan. 1. Then I got side-tracked and have NOT been doing what I need to most of the time for the last two weeks. Oh, woe is me. Instead of needing to lose three pounds in a month, I now need to lose at least three pounds in the next two weeks if I am going to keep that promise. I can do it if I really work at it. If nothing else, I have been far enough off track that I am likely to have the "initial" weight loss that is mostly water as I go back to eating better. Only fell off the wagon slightly today (gave myself a McDonald's mocha frappe as a bribe to get myself to the gym), and did a full hour on the treadmill, taking it up a little, and then several arm type strength machine things, so I'm feeling pretty good about that. And, with a little finagling, I have managed to stay in my calorie range for the day. Plus, I was able to go to the grocery store with a list, and stick to it, which means I came home without cookies or candy, even though I was sorely tempted.
What it boils down to is that I am near losing 10% of my body weight (which happens right at 200 lbs), and historically this is when I tend to get discouraged and quit. Not this time!! I can still make it to One-derland by Jan. 1 with a little effort, and I intend to do it. Hold me to it, Sparkers!!
