My Motivation for Today

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

I am motivated. I work hard at exercise. I make good food choices. But I am clearly eating too much. I have had the weight creeping back, it is only a few pounds, but my clothes don't feel as loose anymore. I gave all my big clothes away. I am determined to stay a size 8. I was more careful today. No luna bar snack, no extra peanuts after dinner.

I am still figuring it out, but as an endocrinologist once told me. An extra 50 calories a day is 5 pounds a year. So I need to be more consistent and avoid that emotional eating that happens to me at work when I am tired or stressed.

I am well into week 4 of the no cake streak. I am doing well with eating right, so I am disappointed that I can't get this maintenance eating thing figured out.

I have lost weight before, and regained it all. That will not happen this time. I am stronger than I was. I am more determined than I was.
