Oh, Yeah...I've Got Me Some Focus!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I'm about to head off to bed, but I wanted to celebrate some successes.

* I have stayed within calorie limits for three days straight.
* I have worked out for three days straight.
* I have eaten healthy foods!
* I have decided that 2 Hershey's dark chocolate kisses are the perfect treat.
* I have recognized when I'm hungry and when I'm just wanting to eat.
* I have recognized that I AM hungry at 8:30, so I plan ahead to have a snack at that time. After all, a calorie is a calorie no matter what time it is.
* I have seen some small movements on the scale, but even better I am seeing some immediate physical effects, like a tighter mid-section.

It's funny how I just spent a couple of months feeling rather lackadaisical about fitness and nutrition, and suddenly on Saturday I had some sort of epiphany. But here I am, motivated and focused, and ready to go.

For the record, because putting it in writing always drives up the determination, here are my numbers:

Last week: 146
Today: 145.4
Maintenance range: 140-145
Goal by Halloween: 144
Goal by Thanksgiving: 142

    Putting it in writing is good, it helps me focus too. But I seem to have to take the next step & make it public in order to hold myself accountable.

    It happened for me in the same way: One day I was only thinking about how I ought to lose weight but pigging out nevertheless and the next I was on my weightloss journey. My scales have shown some progress, but it is definitely slow and sometimes the scales report backsliding. But the only thing to do is to keep working my program and being patient. The worst thing I could do is give up. Happy sparking!
