Time to get serious...again

Saturday, October 06, 2012

After some serious reflection I've come to the realization that complacency is threatening yet again.

I'm not gonna lie. I've had a good run. Since July I've lost 13 pounds - and I'm thrilled.

But it's getting harder. And part of that is the fallout from success.

I've ratcheted down to a smaller size when I shop.A little too small for the size I buy, but not QUITE small enough for the next size down. But I'm looking so much better than when the summer started that part of me is in the "good enough" mode.

So I can see my eating habits are slipping. I'm less vigilant then before. And it's scary. I'm right around 2/3 to my goal and I WANT to finish.

My dilemma now is digging deep and finding the wherewithall to just keep going to the very end.

It doesn't help that the other day my neighbor commented on my weight and how good I was looking. When I mentioned I needed to loose a few more pounds she shook her head and said, "no, you'll be too thin."

No. No I won't. I've been there before and I know I'll be JUST RIGHT!

So, this weekend my goal is to try and figure out how to get re-energized to get back on track and finish strong. I'm now less than 4 pounds away from my free weigh in at WW because I'd be within 2 pounds of their goal. My personal goal this time is to get down to 139 and give myself a one-pound window for being under goal.

WW set my goal at 140. I feel (and look) terrific at 140. People call me 'little' when I'm there - and gotta say, I LOVE that. And the final upside is that when I hit my goal all the clothes in hiding in my office closet will be liberated!

So, it's a day of reflection and resolution building. It's time to stop crossing my fingers that my weigh-in will be good - then celebrating with two-three days of off track eating and buckle down.

You heard it here first - I'm back to being serious every single day!

    WOW Nell you have done so good and I am so proud of you. Your such an inspiration and a motivation to me and us Pink's.

    So now it is time to bring out the old emoticon and say *it is not good enough* unless you truly believe it is GOOD ENOUGH and from what your writing you DO NOT believe that yet.

    So Nell you emoticon and when you get to where you feel JUST RIGHT for you that is all that matters. I know you can do it. I am here emoticon you on my NellSpark.

    I looked great at 140 too, but thought I was fat! Not sure I'll ever see 140 again...
    But what I meant to say is, good for you, keeping an eye on the job.
