“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Hi all - I have been a member for a few months, but don't spend much time on the message boards. I am trying to make use of the tools here a bit more all the time. I am an occupational therapist (actually I teach, now) and am working on my dissertation for my PhD, thus the limited time for anything else... I've had my ups and downs over the years with weight, but most recently it was the grad school. This time I've gained almost 30 pounds, and I'm not done with school. I have, however, started to turn around the weight gain, having lost about 5 or 6 pounds and have started getting my butt out the door and walking a few days a week. I'm not trying to do anything dramatic at this point, just finish my degree without gaining any more, and hopefully losing a bit, and getting a bit more sleep. Nice to see all the success people here have been having - It's very uplifting and motivating.
