Maintenance victory but I wanted a loss......

Friday, July 13, 2018

I can take this as good, neutral or I have to work harder.

I haven't lost or gained weight since I lost the first 2 pounds on my challenge!
I have eaten well interspersed with fits of...I can't even write it.
Exercised quite a bit.
My clothes fit exactly the same as they did. I'm currently wearing shorts and a shirt I wore in 2007. I couldn't always fit in them over this time but they've been around since a specific trip. Perhaps it's a victory that I can wear clothes I wore when smaller and hiking AND they are 11 years old.

I'll take the win but I want better for myself.

    I need to do better ... or want to do better ... I think ... or do I?
    Meanwhile, life rolls along.

    I am with you Janet. Sometimes, I just want to scream. Wouldn't make any difference. May cats would just look at me as I was crazy emoticon emoticon

    Cheers to the shorts fit; you’ve had them since 2007? No way, my wedding dress is the only article of clothing I’ve hung on to. Progress is progress, sweet little victories beat crash and burn any old day. If any of this were easy, few of us would be here. It seems recently that I too have done plenty of, “It was going so well, until it wasn’t.” Nothing horrific, truly horrible, or truly necessary. Just being wimpy on my part. P Seeing the hubs’ elevated blood pressure at the hospital yesterday reinforced the need for self care annnnnnnd long term health and wellness. He admits he’ll readily embrace any nutritional stuff I want to implement to bring it down. Yep, he’s seen my success lowering my high cholesterol and my IBS with fitness and nutrition. Stay tuned for that...

    I tend to see maintaining as good, as opposed to gaining, which is not good. Losing is better but not always possible. You are normal - well, maybe I wouldn't go that far - lol - but you are normal as far as a healthy lifestyles go. The vast majority of us are good sometimes, bad sometimes, and just so-so sometimes. You are always exceptional in many areas. You a wonderful person, a nurturer, kind-hearted, fun, beautiful. It's okay not to expect perfection in every area. Being able to wear clothes you wore in 2007 is a huge accomplishment. Most of us can't do that. You are a work in progress like most of us but way ahead in so many ways. emoticon

    Right there with you, Janet! I've been taking a lot of "got away with that"... and some "I don't care"... and "I don't wanna" in the summer heat. Could be worse. Could be better. But the only thing to do is to take the W and keep on keeping on! emoticon
