Mumble Grumble

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Maintenance is not fun. The alternative is scary though. I went to a meeting yesterday where there were some individuals who had some difficulties that made my own recent aggravations seem sort of whiney. And small. For some inexplicable reason I ended up eating my way through the rest of the day, to the reminder point where I was getting uncomfortable physically. Since I have that 11 month long log of everything I have eaten I am aware that yesterday was the most calories eaten in a single day for the past 11 months. I have been striving to get a few more pounds off this past week. This morning I believe that may be a mistake. I have spent way too many days feeling way too hungry to sustain over any meaningful period of time. I truly love how I look right now. I am at a weight that delights my doctor, and all my friends. Where my clothes fit well and look nice. A weight where I feel great physically. It would be a nice sort of world if I could stop with the daily weights and the journal, but I have done that many times in the past, and it doesn't work for me. Reality bites. But it Is what it IS. I have to do Spring cleaning, if I want the clean home. So off my rear, it begins now. I already journaled my food for today just in case I want to get lazy and eat again (I have the plan what it will be, so I will stick to it because THAT will be easy). On the road again.

    You've accomplished an incredible feat. And yes, maintenance is tough. I failed at it and regained the 70 pounds I'd lost. You DON"T want to do that because it's five times harder to lose it the second time. You are right. You know what you have to do to succeed so you do that. No questions asked. Not doing it is not an option. Good on you for realizing that. Congratulations on being beautiful and THIN.

    You can do it. I hope you do not just Spring Clean but enjoy the wonderful Spring Break. The weather is beautiful and day is calling you to go outside and bike ride or walk or hula hoop. emoticon emoticon Leave cleaning for the rainy days.

    You can do this! I've never been able to succeed without tracking and weighing either. It's just part of life now, and nothing for me to grumble about, any more than I grumble about brushing my teeth (which I sometimes don't feel like doing a proper job of). I'm more inclined to grumble about tooth brushing, now that I think of it.

    Isn't it amazing to look back over an actual journal rather than running it through in your mind. The two never match, and the journal wins.
