Miss_Elise's Journal, 28 December 2012

My weight loss slowed considerably over the holidays. I pretty much let myself have whatever I wanted for two days, which wasn't quite what the behaviorist in my program recommended. I was encouraged to maintain, though, rather than try to lose more weight, and I've come down a pound, so everything is all right, and the last two days I've been back on track with my shakes and bars and all that.

Actually, the weight loss has been slowing for the last month or so. This is probably normal, since I was losing four to six pounds a week for a while, and now I'm losing about three. The behaviorist says that as long as I'm still losing reliably, I'm in good shape, but I do want to step it up in the new year. It's time to start exercising. So far my experiments with exercise have indicated that I'll get a fibro backlash if I walk for more than twenty minutes (or ice skate for fifteen, but I should have anticipated that). This week I'm actually going to follow the doctor's suggestion and try a ten-minute walk every other day. I must be able to start somewhere.
