Delighted that I had 2 delicious meals with my friend yesterday and still weighed 127.8 this morning! So I'm down several pounds over the last couple months.
It has been over a year since I was truly trying to maintain, that is, not lose or gain. There were months I didn't actively try to lose, especially when my focus was on building endurance to run the half marathon. But now I'm just 1.8 pounds til I'm back to my happy weight again. I'm thinking, though, I should probably lose two more just to have a cushion. Might take me 4-8 weeks, but probably would be worth it. Losing it slowly helps me avoid binging and helps me get into place the behaviors I need to maintain. We'll see how it goes. I'm not 100% certain that 126 really is a maintainable weight for me. (Judith Beck PhD of Beck Diet Solution writes about achievable vs. maintainable weight.) I know it is achievable because I did it in 2011. I won't know if is is maintainable or not unless I try.
I walked for a half hour early this morning and then ran and walked for 1.5 hours this morning at the gym. I accidentally hit the stop button on the treadmill twice and lost my data, so don't know exactly how far I went. I am not going to call myself a klutz, but if someone else did, I wouldn't dispute it -- and I wouldn't feel bad, either. I could not stand being a fat klutz, but being a slender klutz is okay with me. Go figure. I did some good strength training and tried a new machine, too. Okay. How about a strong slender klutz??
Enough for now. Perhaps I should wait to write again when I have something more significant to say! (Not promising.)
