I had to wait two weeks to check in on the scale due to some of my long-standing rules around weigh-ins cropping up last Saturday, but after two weeks on my strict program I’m down 7.5 pounds to 199.5 this morning. I’m super-pleased with this result. I expect it to slow down in the next few weeks to about 1-2 pounds per week. I’m 10 pounds from where I want to be, and I am very motivated that I can get there. I can see my waistline starting to reappear already.
I’m enjoying a break from food decision-making and all the doubt and angst that they sometimes cause me. I don’t have to worry if I’m doing it right because I know that I’m following my program so I can’t go wrong.
These last few weeks I’ve been taking steps to get my migraines under control, and work on the stress and anxiety that I’m experiencing around work, so I guess I could say that right now is a re-building, re-setting, and re-focusing time for me. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable, sometimes it’s hard (sometimes it feels like it’s one step forward and two steps back), but I am keeping focused on my goals of calmness, control, and harmony in my daily life. It feels pretty good to be taking positive steps in the right direction.
