Sparking Onward...where I am today after 8+ yrs
Saturday, August 10, 2019
Today's Note: 161lbs is not not where I want to be. I do feel chunky and self conscious. I want to take off ten pounds. Don’t know if it’s sustainable? 153-158 seems doable and comfortable in my skin. But most of all, I want to shed the weight once again and find what maintains me without binging. The ultimate goal is breaking the binge cycle. I’m not real hopeful of 100%, but if I can just lessen the frequency and intensity. I have, I have, I have, I am doing this already. I have made great strides in the last 8 yrs. minus 50-78lbs! Credit! Awesome long term job by me! Only me. I did this! Year 2018, upon retiring, was the easiest, dropping 9lbs below my lowest in previous six years of weightloss/management. Then things fell apart with a slight regain. Back to it...lost 20lbs to an all time low since 2011. Now I am rebattling 10 lbs. I’m pretty good at dropping weight when I set my mind to it. I just have not found how to end/manage the emotional overeating with wild abandon that leads to prolonged upticks on the scale. I am determined to find my way to sane eating and weight Maintenance. As they say, lifelong journey. So, I journey on!
Spark is an excellent place to find my way! Spark on!
Never give up! Hope is always out there!
