I can laugh, or I can let it jar my teeth from my head. For some reason my trip back to goal has been uncharacteristically quick until recently. Since the beginning of September my regular pound a week loss has dropped off to something less than that. I go down, then a little up, then down again leaving me close to where I was before. Of course I knew this was going to happen because I am eating the approximate calorie range that will keep me at a normal BMI when I get there. The top of that range is only 4 pounds away, or 5 or 3 depending upon what day I look at from my spreadsheet. That sheet shows me graphically that I am in fact still losing (the average weight is dropping microscopically).
It is so important for me now to be active here, to read in the maintenance forum, to continue to do the things I do, and eat the things I eat. I have had some difficult days, and this one began like that. I needed to be at work to teach a class early. I had weight lifting planned for this morning. I woke early and debated if I should even get out of bed. Since I could not fall back asleep I did. Then I sat and debated if I would do my plan, or take a rest day, Some How I made myself start, and it has been my favorite part of this day.
