Things seem to be going well. Am keeping up with the jogging but missed strength training today. There's still time to do it, so maybe I will.

I'm trying a not worrying technique that is going really well. I'm very pleased about it. Part of my research into how to stop worrying has helped with the SP. One worrying tip is to only deal with today and not worry about the future. When I have trouble visualizing myself tracking forever I think "well, I'll track my food today" and most days I do.

I don't have a scale and I don't want to get a scale, but it would be nice if I had a way to check my progress other than when I visit my parents 4 hours away. But I guess I run the same route every day, so I can tell if I'm improving on that (not so far, but just keeping it up is huge).

Since I have started working I have stayed at the high end or slightly over my range but I know that it's still way less than I was eating before SP and I don't suffer too much which I really like.

    I run 4.5 km. Well, my route is 4.5 km. I probably run 3-3.5.

    Your making progress and you really don't want to rely on the scale. I get discouraged because I look at the scale too much. So this week I've avoided the scale all week and tomorrow is my weigh in day. So once a month we take our measurements, and I've increased my activity and now exercise an hour a day. I never thought I would get there. So measure against how you feel and the tape measure, and continue to improve.

    Sounds like you're striking a good balance! How far do you run?
