Day 18 in my goal range and Day 202 of my food journal

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I made the right decision to begin a maintenance frame of mind when I did. It looks like my weight loss is slowing down, and the inches continue progress to a smaller sized body. This shift in focus to the goal of sustaining a healthy diet and exercise plan has removed the "hurry" to lose the last 5 or 10 pounds that I imagine will come off. And frankly it is not my business now to decide where my body ends up vs. the scale. I don't know how much the skin that used to cover my 365 pounds weighs, but I still carry it. I am so blessed that it does not hang much, probably because of genetics, maybe because of activity and the fact that when I finally took the first part of it off in the 80's it was slow and healthy, and then when I finished it up in the 90's I still did it slow and healthy. I don't know my muscle mass, but I do know that I am stronger than many women. I don't know how much those puppies on my chest weigh, but they just don't shrink.
Since I first saw myself in the WW lifetime goal range I have been losing inches, but not much in the way of pounds. I weigh about a pound less than I did that day, but my waist and hips have both gone down another inch.
I feel grateful to be here.

    You are most likely building muscle which is better than losing fat. Slow and steady is much better than losing it all at once. It will stay off permanently that way! Way to go!
