WOW! I just did the math: 91 lbs down!!!
Monday, May 27, 2013
For some reason, I haven't figured out that 296 - 205 = 91
This past week, all my chickies have been home, we have gone to events and activities where we run into people who haven't seen me since way before my WLS. I keep telling only those who ask that I've lost 89 lbs.
Now while this is a HUGE number in itself, in my mind I've been tracking to the 'magic 100' mark, so haven't really made a big deal of 89. I've also been longing to get to Onederland.
So today I had the brain flash of 91
I'm considering these numbers 'milestones' not goals, cuz in my mind, goals means I can stop working once I've achieved it.
I know- weird, but true.
So milestone means to me that I've gotten to a significant place, but still will keep going on my journey.
For the most part regarding my food and eating, I've gotten into a 'nice routine' (well-said by LOVING AFRICA). I've set 'policies' for myself (or as Cortney-lee says, 'food rules' that greatly help my food/eating decisions.
While still far from perfect, I've gotten my mistakes and bad food days down to a minimum.
This leg of my journey is focusing on increasing my activities (I don't want to say 'exercise' cuz my mind is stubbornly opposed to the dreaded word "exercise"
I still want to go horseback riding again and I'm pondering jogging.
I find this thought way too funny considering my exercise history!
