and yet another light bulb moment....

of the day
i realized this morning that i'm still waiting for a "moment" to arrive when i've got it all under control...i'm not eating to much, or too little, i'm exercising the right amount, and it's all wonderful. it's odd when i realize i've been operating under a false assumption; in this case, my assumption is that i'll discover a magic formula that i can follow for the rest of my days. i feel pretty foolish putting it in print, but exposing it to the light will help me correct my error. my weight has been up and down for a while, within about 7 lbs, but it's now staying up. i was perplexed, since things had been working great, so i wondered what's the issue??? i evaluated what's changed...i haven't been eating terribly differently, but i have been expending less calories.
if i decrease my output, i'd better decrease my intake, if i increase my intake, i'd better increase my output, and vice versa. that's sort of "no, duh!" but sometimes my mind needs to be firmly schooled in the truth. like i discovered, AGAIN, this morning.
