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 Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness. Pacific time
I counsel my patients day in, day out on weight loss. A year after my twins I was still at least 10 pounds overweight. I wanted to know could I walk the walk? And just how much weight could I lose on 1200 calories a day, trying to exercise 4 times per week... And could I stay with it? I am only almost 3 weeks in now, but I have more energy, I am seeing results, and staying on task. Its doubtful they will notice the results, but at least I will fully believe myself when I give them advice and be able to talk from the perspective of someone who has done it. Hubby is starting to freak out that I might have to buy new clothes though.
Getting back on track after twins. Trying to reach my goal by mid-March. Caribbean cruise, here we come!
