I am now on day 51 of a logon streak! I just thought I'd take a moment to update and to just remember this. Remember going through this. When I get to goal, I want to actually maintain. I've lost nearly 100 pounds before and it was great when I got to goal, but then I just stopped. And the weight came back. So this time I just want to remember each little step along the way. I want to remember the things I learned.
This past couple of weeks have been tough. My motivation has been low. So I decided that what I need to do is cultivate motivation. I have intentionally sought out things like positive quotes and motivational stories. The thought is that if I put those things in, that is what is going to come out of me. That's the hope. :) I'm still on my way, so that's good.
I've had a few "bad" days of eating lately, and I was getting bummed about it until I realized that I'm not doing this to be on a diet. Yeah, there are going to be times when I am doing really well, eating well and exercising. And there are going to be other times when I don't so awesome. And it's ok. It's not the end of the world if I have a bad day or two or three. I have to keep drilling into my head that I just need to get back on track afterwards. I need to keep going if I want real lasting change. So I'm working on getting back on track. :) See you again soon!
