Moving right along!

So things have been moving right along. I have not been working out as much as I should, and I need to get back on that train. I have been letting some personal issues affect my motivation. The good news is, that the eating right is so easy to stay on track now! I mean are there moments of weakness, of course, but the battle for the most part seems to be over. The thoughts of eating something bad quickly come in and then leave my mind. It is not as much of a battle anymore. I guess at first it felt like a punishment that I wasn't allowed to eat certain things, but now it feels like more of a reward when I don't eat them. It is great!
Well, I need to push to get back to working out a lot, other then that things are going great. The journey continues!

The office is going to be starting a big loser competition again so I can't wait to join that and win some more money!

The Tortoise and the Hare

Slow and steady wins the race. That is what I keep telling myself. Of course I wake up everyday just hoping all the weight will fall off, LOL, but of course it won't. Everything I have read about weight loss says that those who lose weight at a slow and steady weight are more likely to keep it off. I am so proud that I have been so successful so far. I can tell you that this is the longest I have ever gone without giving up. I think my brain has just finally accepted that this is not temporary and is a forever change, so if I am bad one day it has been so easy to just start again the next day like yesterday never happened.

I have lost another 3 pounds which is right on my goal track, 10 pounds a month, 2.5 pounds a week.

I have lost my way a little with exercising everyday, I am only doing every other to every third day which is no good. I have let some stress in my life take over and I have to nip that control in the bud and get back on track. Remember, today is a new day.

Well until next time!
