20 Weeks of Maintenance???
Sunday, April 21, 2013
My ticker says I have 20 weeks of maintenance in. Hmmmmm, expectations can get me in trouble. I expected maintenance to be easy. Just don't overeat..right! I expected I wouldn't have to work hard...just maintain.
Nothing could have been farther from the truth. I have struggled for every single one of those 20 weeks. I'm UP...gotta get down again. I'm down...oops I'm up again...gotta get down again. I'm down...oops I'm up again...gotta get down AGAIN!!!
WOW! I'm willing to work, but I seriously hope things get easier as time goes along. They talk about a 5 lb weight variation. Ok, I'm good with 5 lbs...I just need the 5 lbs to be 5 lbs lower than I am now.
Ok...onward I go...there's work to be done.
So the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results!!!! WOW, now there's a shot between my eyes!
In searching for a different way, I just found a SP article called Mind Over Body. The first part talks about putting the "I" in weight loss. Well, it made so much sense and is very very different than I have been thinking. In the upcoming week, I'll be putting the "I" in my weight loss.
