Slow and steady wins the race... Well, I'm certainly slow, and hopefully am working on the steady. I achieved a goal last week of getting through one week without "falling off the wagon" at all. I wanted to stay below my calorie range, and work out, and allow myself one day to splurge a little. I managed all of it, didn't manage to lose much weight, so I was discouraged today. However, as long as I am trying, I won't be gaining, which is progress in itself.
I'm trying to stay positive and work on my first short term goal of 163 by mid-October. I would actually love to be under 160, but at the rate i'm going, I'm just shooting for something that should be achievable.
Here's to week 2 of not falling off the wagon. Our family is going out of town for the Labor Day weekend, and I'm actually looking forward to some fun exercise, and being able to stay on the plan even while on "vacation". We should be doing lots of biking, swimming, rowing, etc. Yeah for activity!
Oh, this week I said no to birthday cookie! WooHoo!
