To Maintain or not to…

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

I had an epiphany last weekend. I could…maintain my weight. I could jump off the train, and just be. It was such a freeing thought, I felt like I was bouncing on the trampoline and I might fly off. So maybe it was a little scary, too.

Because although I have lost weight through lifestyle changes, not dieting, it takes a lot of focus to lose 120+ pounds. And I am struggling with this decision…

Why stay here?
I could maintain this weight in my sleep.
I (honestly) think my eating will get just a little bit better if I’m not thinking about it all the darn time.

Why shoot for 135?
Because losing another 7-10 pounds will further reduce my risk of weight related diseases.
I am soooo close!
I want to run faster and farther, and every pound I lose will make it easier for me and my knees.
