I reached my goal weight of 130 on July 4, 2012. I maintained 130 for about a week and then watched the scale bounce between 133 and 135. And that's where you find me today.
I lost my weight (65 pounds) over a 3 year period. Nice and slow. I never expect to lose any weight about a week before Halloween until about a week after Super Bowl Sunday. I relax, live, and enjoy for a 4 month period. I know it sounds crazy... that's 25% of the year. The catch is that I do expect my fitness level to improve. I do expect to NOT gain any weight. I do expect to make healthy choices at meal and snack times.
The problem is that I've never been in maintenance mode during this self-defined 4-month period. The other problem is that I've become lax about logging meals, logging fitness, and frankly... my pants are tight today.
Even though I've kept up with fitness, logging it must be a key to owning it. And owning it must be a key to owning and maintaining my success. At least for now.
So, Hello everyone! I'm looking forward to being accountable to this team.
Great men are said to have four things in common: they speak softly, have a capacity for hard work, a deep conviction for their cause, and a consuming belief in their ability to do it.
