I just realized by the comments that yesterday's blog sounded a bit negative. What I meant about starting over is starting over the count of number of days that I stay within my calorie count and get at least 1/2 hour of exercise. For me, the longer I stay within these guidelines the faster my snowball rolls downhill. It is just a personal count that I have kind of copied from Pixie.
But I can see how it would seem like a perfectionist sort of behavior, so I am rethinking this whole thing. I have given up getting on the scale to measure my wins. (Another one I contribute to Pixie). I am much more aware of the NSV being important for me as a measure of how well I am doing.
So let me rephrase this. I am restarting my count of days that I have met my goals in a row. Now that sounds better. Not starting over, just starting that count over. Thanks so much for all of your positive comments and your empathy and support. I truly appreciate the feedback and it is great to hear how other people work on their journey.
