Getting closer...

Sunday, July 01, 2007

After I weighed this morning, I realized that I'm only 18 pounds from breaking the 200 barrier. I see this as great motivation to stick firmly to my ranges and get that 18 pounds gone forever. If I work on it, I can have it gone before my daughter goes back to school. I know it won't melt away like my first 18 lb loss, but I'm going to give it a good try and see just how close I can get!

Time to start scheduling my exercise again and treating it like any other important appointment. I'm doing well with my After 8 challenge so I'm considering extending it. I know that I will have evenings when I end up having dinner late, but can go for at least 80% adherence.

I've been slipping on eating more vegetables, so I made a big pot of vegetable stew today and froze individual portions to heat up for the meals that are veggie-low. I'm also going to go back over my food logs and find low-cal meals that I haven't had for a while.

Time for me to start anew and get moving!

    You are doing great! Glad to hear you are doing the tune up. I myself need to schedule my fitness appointment. Seeing your progress is a good incentive and maybe I can catch up with you.

    Getting below 200 is a huge milestone for me. I haven't been below 200 for over 20 years!

    Just stopping to read your blog. I don't know about you but that 200 mark feels like a major accomplishment. I can't wait until we both reach it, and your right we are going to have to work harder at these few pounds than the first. But I know you can do it! Good luck.
