June Weigh In

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

It went well. I am down 2.8 pounds for May and am just 3.8 pounds from goal. I am happy. I am still thinking of my reasons for continuing to lose. After losing 30 pounds, my original reasons may not be enough to take me to the finish line.

Original Reasons

To be as healthy as possible
To be in control and successful
To be light and strong

Additional Reason

Persistence

I have accomplished much in my life by being water on a rock. It takes time but the water wins. I can keep trying and keep moving forward no matter what. I need to apply this to reaching my goals. I realize that I may not be able to maintain my lowest desired goal weight with the number of calories I want to be able to eat daily and the amount of exercise I am willing to do weekly BUT I want to get down to that goal before I do the maintenance food and exercise plan. If I gain, then I will have to live with a slightly higher weight than goal, but I do not want to give in before I see if I can maintain at goal.

I will be thinking more about this and will let you all know if I come up with anything more.

    I know what you mean with concern about the eventual calorie range and exercise level.
    I have been exercising vigorously 5 or 6 days a week and eating quite healthy, limiting my portions, no sweet drinks. I have plateaued for nearly 2 months. So it has taken me a couple weeks to rev up the drive to cut back my eating even further and even more consistently. I am not a healthy BMI so I gotta do this. But it's sobering, that I've "been so good" and just maintaining at this (excessive) weight. So I've signed on the Back to Beck Challenge to track, stay strictly in calorie range, report, etc. for June. Gotta do this. You are a great encouragement and inspiration to me. I'm cheering for you, even as you deliberate about those last pounds. You are so insightful and clear-headed; I know you will do great figuring it all out, along the way! Didn't mean to ramble on and on . . . . but I LOVE YOUR WATER ON THE ROCK metaphor!!

    Remember just to stay focused on that weight loss and not to worry about anything else but getting those last few pounds ! God Bless, Rev. Mike

    I think you've said enough for now. You have a very sensible plan there as well as one that you should be able to keep.
