Delicious. Darn it.

Food is so tasty. Food can be so difficult to enjoy in moderation!

I'm struggling with overeating these past few days more than usual. Not as in eating tons and tons of food willy-nilly, but just sticking to the range. I've eaten past the top of the range by a couple to several hundred calories a few times this week. I'm seeing the scale creeping up ever-so-slightly rather than down. I still need to eat dinner and I've almost hit the bottom of my suggested eating range already. It's tough to eat moderately after an overindulgent lunch when you're still hungry at dinnertime. I can bulk up the veggies and have smaller portions of the rest.

Luckily I've gotten my exercise motivation back! I did the step 2 workout again today, and since I knew what to expect it went much better than the first time. I still couldn't keep up with it entirely, I did the best I could, and didn't give up. Definitely getting back to noticing the subtle changes taking place, as I push a little harder than I did the time before. That's what keeps me coming back for more though, those little changes. Love them.

Since I felt like I've been doing poorly more than I've been doing well lately, I decided to look at my calendar where I've been logging my weigh-ins. I've lost 5 pounds over the last 3 or so weeks. That's progress, and I know I can keep going. So I will.

    Exercise is the key. I know that it's hard to keep motivated to exercise some days, but I find it helps with keeping eating under control as well.

You can do it!!!!!

    Progress can be measured many ways. Keep finding all those ways!

    Sometimes we have to step back and look at the bigger picture (YES, I am getting stronger; YES, I have lost some weight) in order to keep our perspective. I think we all hit times when the calorie range just doesn't match up with our appetites. Hang in there. You ARE making progress!
