Now that's hilarious

Apparently the key to my weight loss is to stop worrying about it. ;)

As I noted in my last blog post, I haven't been very motivated lately. (Or more accurately, my motivation has been redirected.) I haven't tracked much at all. I've been mindful of portions, sticking to the good plate guidelines...

And I dropped down just a little bit more. Over half a pound!


I'm very pleased that I've reached the point where even when I'm not tracking... I still stay on the right path. I already knew that I tend to eat at maintenance now; this is very pleasing!

It emphasizes that my biggest trigger is caloric beverages... if I indulge in a regular soda, it throws me off every time!

    Regular or diet... Soda cannot replace water. When I was trying to drop soda, two factors have helped: I first dropped the sugar in my beverages, like coffee, tea, etc; next I started to drink gaseous water, which tasted somewhat like soda without sugar. Over time, I dropped gaseous water too, so now just plain water is enough. Overall they took me a few years though.

    This shows that you don't have to be perfect to stay on a healthier journey - you just need to do what you can when you can. You've found that drinking your calories is a bad thing, so that's one relatively simple step you can take to keep moving forward. As long as you keep up healthier habits you'll be doing better.

    Whatever works for you.

    Until a person realizes that the small things are just as damaging as the big binges, they will continue to struggle. There is an old saying with money,"Watch your pennies, your dollars will watch themselves." That works for food too. It's much easier to NOT have that big meal, but is more difficult to avoid all those little bites, sodas, etc. throughout the day.

    Ugh, my motivation also seems to be on prolonged hiatus. Glad your motivational setback hasn't translated into a weight-loss setback!
