Week 6 of Maintenance

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I didn't report on my 5th week of maintenance last week.
I was distracted by a small event called the Super Bowl. emoticon
I was up a pound from the 3 I had lost the previous week.
This week I've stayed the same as last week.
123lbs sounds like a fake weight.
I input it on the treadmill and I think, really? emoticon
1, 2, 3.
Fake weight!
I suppose I could try to lose the 3 to make it a nice round even 120.
Just thinking about it raises my anxiety. emoticon
Then I'd have to restart the maintenance ticker on my SparkPage.
It was painful enough changing it from the Weight Loss Ticker to the Maintenance one.
I liked seeing where I started, so I don't let myself go back there, but it's a silly painful visual.
The Maintenance Ticker is a more positive one at this point.
Which reminds me, I need to report my weight.

Have a great week.
Remember, Valentine's Day is ONE day, not a whole week!!
Stay away from as many sweet red and pink wrapped cutesy stuff as you can.

I challenge you!

    Remember 123 is just a number. What you need to remember is your achievement!

    I will have a small piece of dark chocolate tonight! emoticon

    I think any number that you feel awesome in will be rocking
    Your doing great !
    Just do what your doing and maybe the 120 will just happen
    Otherwise don't stress you look great !!

    Wow, I seriously can't remember the last time I saw 123 lbs on my scale! Congratulations. Don't worry too much, you can maintain. Remember: 1 choice at a time.

    And you're right, Valentine's Day is just one day,

    Week 6 of maintenance? That's awesome! I hope you're still proud of yourself for reaching your ideal weight, even though it was 6 weeks ago. I'm proud of you!

    I think 123 is pretty awesome.


    No candy here... though I always buy my lovely bride a Valentine's chocolate on chocolate cake from the local bakery. Predictable, of course, but she loves them!

    Make it a great day!

    It's a great job you've been doing! And having reached the maintenance mode and keeping it for 6 weeks makes me feel so motivated and optimistic. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm with Blitzen- its either on sale or has accumulated in the house. One of my major weaknesses is not wanting to waste anything.... Repeat after me: "You are not a vending machine. There is no reason to fill you with junk." Thanks for the nudge!

    So excited that you are at 6 weeks maintenance now! Amazing and inspiring!

    Doesn't even seem like it is Valentine week right now to me.

    Thanks for blogging. When I am at goal, I need to take a screen shot of my ticker before I change it! THanks!

    What about if it has green frosting is that ok?

    Thanks for the remainder, Yep ! just one day this year.
    1806 days ago
    Will do!

    It is AFTER Valentines Day (or Christmas, or Halloween) that is my downfall. That's when all that sugar goes on deep discount and it makes it twice as hard to resist! This year I'll try to remember it's just ONE day!
