canyonmn's Journal, 26 September 2009

I knew this time would come .. where the number of calories I burn each day would equal the number of calories I ingest. I even actually always figured it would come around 200 pounds, and I was right.

I've started doing light exercises, so I'm hoping that helps my body adjust, and I begin losing again. I just probably won't lose at the same rate I have previously, and that's too bad. I was hoping to reach my target weight by my birthday this year. We'll see.

I just want to make sure that whatever changes I make in my life, they're sustainable. I don't want to make the changes so drastic that I will eventually lose the will-power to follow them, or grow bored. I have a very 'addictive' personality. If I even 'start' deviating from my current path, it will eventually completely take over .. kind of like a slight procession of a spinning coin. At first it's not noticeable, but eventually it becomes profound, and the coin soon stops. I don't want to be that coin. :-)

201.0 lb Lost so far: 43.0 lb.    Still to go: 26.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

You won't be the coin. Hopefully, things will start moving again, in fact, I'm sure they will.

I like the coin analogy and I agree that small changes and things that are sustainable are the key. Try to integrate the light exercise into something that you are doing everyday anyway or that is more of an enjopyment. I walk a lot with my wife...not fast but it is enough for a biscotti each day...I like that. Keep it green...slow and steady. Best Jim
