5 pounds to ticker goal weight

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Once again the goal posts have shifted.
Those last 5 pounds are not an ending.They mark a beginning.
The beginning of really taking on board that what I am doing is for the rest of my life.
I have lost and gained hundreds of pounds over my lifetime since the age of 12.
It feels different this time. Sort of exciting and sort of a little bit scary.
I have to take on board, that every day, I love myself enough to find time to stay active make the best nutritional choices.
This also means making those same choices in other areas of my life. Not ready to blog about them yet.. but who knows..... one day in the future..... as I said, the goal posts always shift for me. emoticon

    Like you I'm really determined to MAINTAIN once I get to goal weight - and I've been checking out the "maintenance" teams because I think one of those may help at that point (soon) when I'm also at goal.
