Que Sera Sera

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Though more importantly, what is is. So my rate of weight loss varies in predictable ways based on my chronobiological rhythms. Every month my weight doesn't budge for several days, and then historically I drop 2 or 3 pounds. Guess how far I am from my maintenance goal? (2 or 3 pounds). So I'm either looking at 4 days, or 3 weeks. That is why I say Que Sera Sera, even though it is not typically in the spirit of Carpe Diem, Veni Vedi Vici, or Fac Id (Latin for "Just do it".

I had been saying my goal was 162.5, but that's if you calculate BMI to two decimal places. At 165, it would be 25 in whole numbers. And 165 was my original goal. And I really think that if I want to make gains in my strength, I need to get out of the 500 cal/day deficit.

Something I realized about why people fall off of maintenance this week is that eating to lose weight only happens if it is a priority, but maintenance doesn't as much. Maybe there is something to the lack of reward from the scale. Not sure.

December starts of rough for me, with my son's birthday and then deathday. So I'm kind of excited, but also want to have my oxygen mask firmly in place. I know that analogy usually applies to helping someone else. I guess what it means in this case is that shattered girl who reappears this time of year. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Some years it isn't so bad. We'll see.

    You'll make it. Give yourself the time you need. With your goal clearly in sight you'll stay focused. Looking ahead, recognizing the upcoming challenges, and planning for the challenges you'll face are an excellent way to face them head on and beat them. All the best.
