Chapter 29, Day 10

Saturday, August 04, 2018

It's been a solid 6 days, with good weight loss results. I've worked hard for it. Still lots of work before me.

25# to lose in all -- 5 months to do it -- 5# to lose each month.

Doable, reasonable.

MUST continue to work hard and continue to fight the excuses and the food temptations. They come every day, multiple times. I fight it by remembering my reflection in the storefront glass. I really, really don't want to be her anymore. Is this enough to help me avoid today's appetizers and birthday cake at the family August birthday soiree emoticon



DAY'S POSITIVES

CAN DOs
Walk....giving myself a pass on the fitbit green day (I won't have the time today for 14K-15K steps) and I will limit my calories to one of the options below but I need to track a sample food plan for today and evaluate.
I usually allow myself 2000 calories for special food events (15 calories x my healthy BI weight) I'm evaluating 1555 calories as an alternative, which is my max allowable calories per Spark...that will be a big challenge enough. My fitbit has me set much lower as I chose a more aggressive weight loss option -- about 1K calories only for a green day, but the more I exercise, the more I can eat (yeah, I know about the 1.2K being the absolute lowest one should go....I will switch to a less aggressive option soon)

Going after SELF-DISCIPLINE today.

What is your goal for yourself today?

UPDATE
Total Daily Calories 1333

    You're sounding so very positive - as you are wont to do. I'm hoping that I can jump in and join you with the 5# / month goal. Somehow I've ballooned this summer and need to get serious also. I hope that I can be as positive and serious about my efforts as you are! emoticon
