Beck Trek - Chapter 6 - Day 10 - Set a Realistic Goal

Monday, September 07, 2015

Yes, I'm a little behind. I kept my two older grandkids on Saturday night, and then celebrated Sunday lunch and some beach time with all of my kids and grandkids.

My daughter made BBQ ribs. I ate one so that I could tell her how wonderful they were...and then fully satiated myself with loving on my family.

Who needs food when the plate is already overflowing with all that?

My weight goal is to keep my BMI in the "normal" range. I'm 5'3" tall, so that means I need to be under 138. I'm in that range now, but I would love to get a little further away from the high end of that range (about 10-12 more pounds).
emoticon
My motto for this journey is "living a life that I can live with." Meaning I want a life at a healthy weight, but not at a weight where I have to be a nun every day of my life in order to maintain that weight.
emoticon
The lowest weight I've ever obtained was 129, and that lasted only a fleeting moment. It has always seemed too hard to maintain. I'm going to keep on doing Beck and see if the skills I am learning will help me change that thinking.
emoticon
I also have a pair of size 4 pants that I would like to see fit a lot better...and my upper arms are a flabby mess that I'm embarrassed about constantly. I've read that plastic surgery is really the only hope for flabby upper arms like mine. I can't afford to do that.
emoticon
Oh well, here's my plan: I'm doing a modified version of the plank challenge (I'm up to 4 minutes), and I've put 10 pound dumbbells in my office so that I can do spontaneous sets of arm work during the work day. This is in addition to two RIPPED classed and three spin classes each week.
emoticon
Rewards...I could do better. If I really want something, I usually just get it. Having my clothes fit better and feeling good about myself are reward enough for me.

    What a fabulous way to fill your heart. ...with Grands rather than calories! Beck does talk about lowest attainable weight vs lowest sustainable weight. This is one point of hers that I have to ignore
    The reason is bc in the past I have been unable to sustain ANY weight!!! So I'm bound, bent and determined to maintain this time snd now to go down another 5. I can and i will. And you can maintain whatever weight you choose tooooooooo!

    You are doing great.. keep up the good work. I know what you mean about the fleeting moment. I hit 128.8, was able to snap a photo and that was about it.
