Gotcha didn't I? ...::::Mwhahaha...
Aww..... you know me better than that!
In a balanced sense, I will "relax" from the "DRIVE" of losing weight, but in another much stronger sense, I will simply continue to ENJOY MY very own healthy lifestyle that I adopted long ago.
Yes, I have been warned by several veteran MoM's that 5% - 20% of folks actually maintain their loss. The ODDS are against us. I am certainly sober about that thought. I KNOW this will NOT be easy-peasy.
BUT I am used to a Challenge...in fact I thrive on Challenges, and I know going into this season of maintenance, that I have my PLAN ready.
..:::I already LOVE this:
:::ALL of this makes my mouth water.
..:::and I LOVE this:
..:::I cannot help it if I'm AdDiCtEd to Fitness, now can I?
So, if I'm addicted to ALL of this, then it makes sense that I will simply ...::::continue::::.... to enjoy it.
"Character gets you out of bed; commitment moves you to action. Faith, hope & discipline enable you to follow through to completion."
Success is a mental battle.
I will continue to use that daily discipline as a tool because I know it works. The turning point of Success for me was when I realized I already had it in me to succeed. My mind just needed to be reined in...You MUSTANGS will like that one...LOL! Once I became mindful of ALL I did, and being mindful became a HABIT, I WON!
I will still weigh myself perhaps daily.....perhaps weekly, and use my favorite tool as well to measure progress, the measuring tape.
Instead of looking into the unknown future with a cautious fearful approach, I choose to jump into tomorrow with abandon!
Life must be LIVED...and to the Fullest!
I see the following FUN in my future:
::::Maintenance in my range ( 140-145 ) ....a BMI of 22
::::a variety of races!
...and down the road perhaps a
::::a slimmer ME.
::::a continued outreach to my friends.
::::a well balanced life, a cup half full, no scratch that. An overflowing Cup!
Here's to a Bright Future and a Happy one!
