Change The Plan, Never The Goal

Saturday, April 06, 2013

When I committed to this journey on 1 September 2012 all I could see was the long road stretched out ahead of me. Brimming with new-found confidence, I not only let SP determine the weight goal for me, it also determined the time-frame. To me that was the best fit because it gave me a chance to change the plan if I desired.

As I've been losing weight, I've adapted my caloric range and began tracking sodium - working to keep my weekly average to roughly 1,000 mg per day.

I am 10 pounds from seeing the goal line. Once I achieve it, I can decide what to do next. The most important thing is to finish what I started. Eventually I will get there. Whether I do it now or by August is not the point. Getting there is!

    Good plan! Listen to Sparkradio when you get the chance. They talk about maintenance. It's good to have that plan in place too. It is from the current session. emoticon

    I agree, I changed my plan so that it would work for me and have found a good balance between eating, exercising and losing weight. I feel great! I'm sure you do as well! It must be so exciting to be 10 pounds from goal weight. The finish line is in sight! emoticon emoticon
