What is is with me and 170s?
Tuesday, May 07, 2013
So this is what I've noticed (and this went on several years ago when I hovered in the 180s for quite some time before heading into the 200s) - I get into the low 180s - I can literally SMELL the 170s on the horizon (and even hit 179.2 last fall) and then I sabotage myself. Grrrrr
So what is it with me and the 170s? It's not as if I LIKE being in the 180s (but at least it's better than where I started at 215), but I seem to have some internal panic response of going lower. And I don't know what it is.
I know the answer - get a hold of myself. Start eating right and tracking again. I would say I should stay away from the scale for a month or two and just focus on getting healthier instead of that number, but the new 5% challenge starts soon and I'll have to weigh in every week.
You know what? It's my mind, darn it, and I'm not going to allow it to keep me from my goals!
