The .2 solution

Sunday, March 25, 2012

I have a relatively new scale right now that measures weight in .1 of a pound increments. I like this. I have thought hard about a goal for weight loss after reaching a number I don't want to see and can't quite live with over this weekend. I am hoping to average .2 pounds a day. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the scale will not move steadily down in .2 pound increments but I am hoping that on the average I can manage this amount.
Right now I feel like gravity, menopause and church are all lined up against me but I have found a little more determination and possibly some desperation with numbers. I will get more of those numbers tomorrow as I plan to have my cho. checked. That tends to be a rude awakening.
I have thought a bit about something Vicky Heath of First Place 4 Health calls Sustainable motivation. I need to keep in mind the extra pounding I am putting on my weak knee and the strain I am placing on my circulatory system with my cho. numbers. I also need to think about the fact that having one of my children married means I could get grandbabies at anytime. Yep time to be healthier.
I have 2 days of somewhat better food intake. Today would be good if it weren't for the brownies at church. However that is one treat as compared to several a lot of times in the past few weeks so if I have some 3 bean chili for supper and stay out of the cupboard at home tonight I think the day is salavagable as a little better each day sort of day.

    Best of luck to you. I'm lucky lately if I can make a .2 pound loss a week!

    I've been reading one of Carole's books now, and she mentions "Do the next right thing." That helps me when I face decisions like brownies...not that I always follow suit. The other phrase that stands out is "Get on the bus".

Best wishes with the .2 lb. average loss.

I am going to a State First Place training meeting in April:)
