Hanging in there


Monday, January 21, 2013

I've been following my program for nearly two months now, being really careful about tracking, and motivating myself to get out and walking every day that it's possible. I'm not looking for fast weight loss, but for moving in the right direction. After all, I didn't gain the weight in a couple of days and I'm not going to lose it that fast. Besides, I want to make sure I know what I need to know to maintain my weight loss over the long haul. The very long haul, as in the rest of my life. I want to make peace with the ups as well as the downs. Last week after getting lots of exercise, my weight went up a bit, and this morning I expected another rise, because my Friday night and Saturday noon meals are always celebratory, usually with guests and higher calorie than usual. But lo and behold, this morning my weight was down to its lowest since I started getting serious about this program. A nice treat to start my week. What have I learned from this small surprise? Don't get caught up in the daily ups and downs, but keep your eye on the goal and keep plugging along. If you're doing the right things, eventually the scale will catch up with you.

My short term goals for the coming week? Keep tracking food carefully, and get out to walk every day. Create opportunities for movement, and enjoy every minute.
