Positive thoughts, people

Monday, May 07, 2012

The last 6 weeks I have seen very little progress. I know half of that included vacation time, but STILL. I am only down about a lb from where I was in March. A little frustrating. But I'm trying NOT to be too frustrated, knowing that I'm still 10+ lbs less than I was at Christmas time, and that my tummy doesn't look 5 months pregnant anymore. I just need to keep at it and try a little harder to keep my calories lower. I've been eating like 1450-1600 a day, but then having days where I'm over THAT. I think I need to lower it to keep my eating more under control, because if I have it set that high, I WILL eat that much, even if I didn't exercise enough to justify it that day. I really want to lose another 10 lbs in the next 2-3 months. Really really. I've got to eat more fruits and veggies and fill up that way! And cut the junk! I haven't been eating much, but in the last few days I had quite a few no-bake cookies and several instances of ice cream, and it kind of made me feel icky. So here's to a new week, and to -hopefully- getting down to 172 by the end. If I hit 172, I will be lower than I have been in 2 1/2 years, and it will be cause for celebration. (This weekend is already cause for celebration, because it's our 7-year anniversary! :)

    I hear you. I've had several plateaus like that. Just keep plugging along and try not to get discouraged. Your hard work will pay off eventually. Are there non-scale victories that you've noticed and can focus on? Those help me when my motivation is lacking and the scale isn't moving.

Congrats on 7 years! Here's to many more!
