Trouble--

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

Well, in my last post I shared that I'd lost 50 lbs--and I did. But ever since then I've moved back and forth between 185 and 188. Mostly though I've been parked at 186 (the 50lb lost weight). Beth suggested that I had not been eating enough because mostly i'd been below 1200 calories. SO for the past two days I've been eating more--between 1500-1600 calories. I haven't weighed myself yet today but yesterday was still parked.

Now, what's the trouble if I haven't regained weight?
It is my attitude. I've been eating whatever I want....which generally means eating very little in the daytime and eating the house at night. Now I have been still tracking...and actually that has been a comfort because I just ate over 600 calories tonight and was sure I'd eaten myself to over 2000 calories. But no..my daytime deficit saved me. 1530 calories.

So I've been tracking...but halfheartedly. I have not been doing any other Spark-activities other than spinning the wheel. Does that matter? Yeah, it does. I have been neither getting nor giving any support. I have not blogged to look inside my heart and brain to see what is going on there. I have not been working on my goals with Beth. And that is the biggest area of concern. I don't want her to waste her time with me and I know she has some good advice that would benefit me if i would just put it into action.

so maybe my stationary weight is symbolic of a stasis of heart, mind and body. Time t break out of this shell I'm in and start stretching my wings. Time to soar!

    You have the blueprint...your action plan...do what you can to get your attitude on track. Sometimes you just have to “fake it ‘til you make it”; to me that means doing what you know you must even though you don’t feel like it....50#’s is an awesome accomplishment! emoticon
