I am blogging to you from my kitchen, feeling exhausted and happy to be home. You know how it goes when you get home from a trip. The unpacking, the laundry, the errands that have to be shored up before the start of a new week. I had a wonderful time and now it’s back to my routines.
I’m slightly under my points range today at 22sp for the day, but I’m not hungry in the least so I’m going to call it a day, I have no regrets about my food choices. I stayed on track, and I’m not feeling at all deprived. I left Vermont full of fond memories and not extra pounds. Learning how to live the plan for life is a process, and these daily reflections are really helping me to uncover my why, well my whys…
There are many reasons I want to achieve this goal of weight loss. I want to be healthy and not get prematurely older than my years. I want to feel good about my appearance. I want to seize this opportunity to change my life for the better. Knowing that I have the power to change myself for the better is a very big deal. It’s worth it to take some time to reflect as to why you want to lose weight. Naming why you want to do this makes accomplishing it more – real.
Some gettingtogoal housekeeping… My top five things I’m proud of:
- I blogged every day even when it was challenging
- I was selective about the foods I decided to either eat or not eat
- I took advantage of the beautiful outdoors I went for walks and quad rides
- I was mindful as to whether my hunger was internal or external
- I packed my lunch and breakfast for tomorrow 11sp
I keep thinking about the lifelines I mentioned the other day. Writing these posts, and thinking about the bigger picture is a lifeline. Having a supportive community that is cheering me on is a lifeline. Knowing that my family and friends are there for me is a lifeline. Understanding that I (and you) are not alone in this journey is a lifeline too.
Thank you for reading, more tomorrow…
