Persisting with the Persisting . . .
Tuesday, December 02, 2014
OK, looking at my MARC (Maintenance Advantage Response Card), I remind myself I want to maintain: for health reasons; because my clothes all fit; because I have higher energy; feel upbeat and optimistic; and because I look better.
Looking at my Maintenance To Do Card, I know I must: weigh myself every day (still up those 2 darn pounds grrrrrrr); resume vigorous dieting if I'm up 3 pounds (and I'm vigorously dieting now!!); expect it to be hard at times (yup, got that one, curbing the "it's not fair"); give myself credit every day (could do more of that, good girl Watermellen!!); keep on tracking (doing that, well within calorie range); and keep exercising (can do a bit more of that for sure).
Ya mean I've gotta do this FOR LIFE??
It's like the reverse of asking if you have to floss your teeth every day -- I only have to floss those teeth I wanna keep. Which would be all of them.
So I have to sustain my maintenance program only within the limit of those pounds I want to keep at bay. However, that would be all of the pounds between me and 230.
Oh well oh well oh well.
Persisting with the persisting. NO CHOICE.
