Challenge Blog Entry - Day 5

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Thinking about what I need to improve on, I got thinking about how I am close to goal. I worry sometimes that once I reach goal, I will fall off the wagon and go back to my old habits. I keep telling myself that this is a lifestyle change and not a diet, but once I'm at goal will I still think that way? I need to commit myself to continue logging in my food and keeping active with sparkpeople. I also need to continue with my water intake. Now is the time I need to start planning since I'm only 5 pounds away.

    Congratulations on being so close to goal. I got really scared thinking about being at goal also. I have decided it will just be another fabulous sparkling day, like all the others that I have been enjoying lately. I will be glad to reach my goal, but I think everything else will remain the same. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It is awesome that you are close and wonderful that you are planning for success. Would it be possible to set other goals, besides weight, so that once you reach the first one you are still striving for something? Perhaps a 5K run, a pull-up, consecutive meal tracking streak, etc.?

    5 pounds away? emoticon I think that once you get there, you could always tell yourself that the "old way of eating" was really poison to your body.? I can't really relate since I am so far away from my goal, but I do hope to continue seeing you Sparking, daily!!
