Not bad at all

Friday, November 11, 2011

We're moving along in November and I only have 19 days to get to my goal. Only 2.5 lbs away. However, I'm not finding myself super motivated. And at the same time, I feel that it's ok because I'm far from being overweighed. The problem I have is that I lose much on my face, arms, but it's harder in the lower portion. So I hate to look like I'm too skinny when my hips could still shed some, LOL!

I think I'm at peace with where I'm at right now. I don't feel that this has to be a battle. I don't want to gain back what I've lost, but I don't want to fight so hard to lose more. 132 is not bad at all for me.

I'm not saying I'm stopping here. I am going through another round of PMS, and I know that I have little self-discipline in those days, so it's ok, I'm not being hard on myself, I'm letting myself indulge some, and still exercise when I can, and be aware that I am eating a couple of truffles.

I know also that with the holidays coming I will have to be vigilant not to fall back into my old eating habits. If my current weight is fine with me, there is a fine line where I could become oblivious.

All right, I feel happy that I am not beating myself up, if I don't make it to my goal on December 1st, I just won't get another treat like the facial I had planned for, but I can get it another time when I make it.

    I had a similar problem when I was close to my goal. I could see I wouldn't have "the look" I wanted, and needed a new goal. But being comfortable is an important part of being successful at maintenance. You can always re-evaluate later if you choose.

    I'm happy that you have reached a point of peace with the process! I'm not one for timelines.... I will just do the work and let the results come when they will. A timeline would be stressful to me.

    You are doing fabulous!! I'm glad you are sticking with it, but not beating yourself up. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a wonderful positive attitude. With an attitude like that you are less likely to give in to old habits. YOU GO GIRL!

    Sooo close. But good, don't beat yourself instead focus on the good changes you've made and all you've learned.
