If it Ain't Broke....
Thursday, October 29, 2020
This morning I weighed myself thinking that I was just setting myself up for disappointment. I had not weighed myself for a couple of days...I am not tracking currently because what I've been doing seems to be working well with much less effort. My goal to be met by my birthday on December 9th, was to get down to 175. When I made that goal I felt somewhat dubious about my chances of success at it.
Today I weigheed 174..
What am I doing? I eat a light breakfast--either a protein shake or some fruit and yogurt. I have been eating really only two meals a day. And the meal that I eat can be anything that sounds good to me. Today I had a vegetable/cheese calzone that came from a nearby pizzaria. (I had half of it) ....With this meal I broke one of the guidelines I try to keep. I try to remain aware of the point at which my body says iit has had enough. and what is harder is to STOP eating then. In the past day or two i have eaten a full meal...somethiing I had not been doing. so I want to be more attentive to the "satiation point".... I don't really snack much in between meals but I do have a snack (usually a bowl of cereal) in the night....For some reason I often wake up hungry. I have come to the point where I can eat healthy snack at night and that is it..I am no longer snackking all night long.
My body is very saggy after a couple of years being completely sedentary due to illness and bad health and then having lost a significant amount of weight...I have not lost nearly as many inches as I should have for the amount of weight I've lost.. I really should get a prescription for outpatient Physical Therapy just long enough to get a tailor made exercise program. It would have to be simple and kind to my body...my joints cannot hand much stress on them.
Anyway. I'm gping to wait a couple of days before I weigh in again . I know the way my body works. It is two steps forward and one back with lost weight. I don't want to go through the heartache of regaining....so I will keep with the program (which is really NO program.) and after a while has passed, I will face the music once again.
If things get out of hand, I will return to tracking. But for now, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.!
