ElizabethEl's Journal, 23 January 2013

My first mini-goal of reaching 172 by Feb 1 is only 9 days away - and I'm 174.6. Maybe I can do it - but my mind is beginning to be putting too much importance on it I think. I'm having thoughts like, just skip meals, etc and have to remember this is a lifelong WOE, not a sprint to the one yard line. If I make it, great. If I don't I will hit 172 just doing what I'm doing, eventually!

Diet Calendar Entry for 23 January 2013:
1233 kcal Fat: 80.88g | Prot: 98.64g | Carb: 36.34g.   Breakfast: coffee, sugar free coffeemate. Lunch: low carb tortilla, beef broth, ground beef, cheese, brocolli. Dinner: beef broth, butter, low carb tortilla, pork tenderloin, green beans, Shortbread Cookies SMALL Sugar Free. Snacks/Other: tension tamer tea, Low Carb Cheesecake, deli ham. more...

I get really hung up on numbers, as much as I try to undo that type of thinking. The only purpose it serves is making myself miserable, which is generally something I want to avoid. You're right -- 172 will come. Maybe by the 1st, maybe by the 14th. But it will come, and then it will go. <3

What a great attitude! Especially since it is so easy to become discouraged. But, guess what? I just looked at your graph and in the last 9 days you have lost 4 pounds. Just do your best to follow your sensible and healthy plan and you never know what might happen!
