Just passed the 200 day mark. This might be the longest I have ever stuck to a plan! Wow! Just measured myself. Amazing to see the reports and realize what a difference 200+ days can make!!! :) No weight loss in several weeks but I've become use to that...hence the measurements. My relationship to food has nearly completely evolved. My food shopping habits have changed. This is quite the amazing journey. Slow and easy is the way to go. By allowing to do exactly what SP suggests: set small achievable goals, exercise at least 10 minutes a day, track all your food...wow!!!! It works. I have had imperfect days. I track everything anyway. I think the worst thing I can do is lie to myself about something I ate that wasn't part of my plan for the day. It is that thin trip wire that sends the "I failed message" to the brain. I now say an internal "Oops" and get back to the business of healthy food consumption the very next meal. Once again, I remind myself that when I began this journey, I was moving a tiny 200 or so steps a day. Now, I find that, I'm using my recumbent bike about 75 mins a day. "Who would have thunk it"! I watch the exercise journey of others ~ there are so many who inspire me. My only point of frustration is a waist line issue! :) That number stubbornly refuses to budge! Time to focus some special attention there. Groan....
Hope you are all enjoying the summer months. Our summer here in the Basin has been nearly perfect! I fret only that it is slipping by to quickly! Take care cyber-village friends!
