I know I have not been so good lately, but I've started to lose my desire to "be good". I still want to be healthy, but I want to eat fries and ice cream. I want to take a day off from exercise every once in a while. This works well for me when I want to maintain. I've been pretty much maintaining since just after Thanksgiving. When I first stepped up my exercise, I started to feel like I was losing a little, but it hasn't continued. I'm not unhappy with my current weight. Ideally I want to lose at least 10 pounds so I'll be within the healthy range of BMI, but it's not happening with what I'm currently doing. What I probably should do is buckle down and really try until I get the weight down to that point and then focus on maintenance.
There was an image that I had posted a while ago as a motivation image, the one in the blue bikini. It was from when I weighed about 150 pounds. I was looking at that and thinking I really don't look all that different now, so I tried putting the two images side by side. Even though I weigh nearly 170 pounds now, I look almost as good. I figure it's because I've been working out. So that makes me really start to wonder why I need to lose more. As soon as I get into a healthy range, I think I'm going to stop being so strict, but in the meantime how can I make those last few pounds come off?
Here's the picture I was talking about:
