Week #1 down 1 lb
Week # 2 down another 1 lb
Week #3 down .2....WHAT.... Hold on here. .2? What did I do differently? OK SP changed my calorie range up... so what did I DO? I ate to the top of my new range. As I said before, if it ain't broke, it don't need fixin'.
So I restructured my calorie range, and ate mostly at the middle of the range. I did have 2 what I call "dietary indiscretions" and what has also been called a "pig out." Dinner at the Mansion at Turtle Creek (w/ 3 vodka martinis) ... probably one of the top 3 venues in Dallas and worth every dang calorie. Oh yeah... and a double double at Five Guys w/ an order of fries. Not a top 3 venue.... but you know? it WAS worth the calories. But OTHER THAN THAT (oy vey) I stayed well within my calorie range on all the other days. I worked out like a fiend. (OK like a 60 year old overweight fiend). And guess what? Even with my less than perfect choices.....
Week #4 down 1.2 lbs!!
So even though I'm newly returned to SP, that's down over 10# since May 22 and down almost 20 since the first of the year. And I threw in a 12 day cruise and a long wedding extravaganza which slowed my progress. But 2 steps forward and 1 step back is STILL going to get me to my goal. Patience, forgiveness, determination. Yup... I'm good to go.
