This Week I’m: Focusing on Long-Term Improvements

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.

    You’re doing great! I’m also trying to shed a couple of pounds but it is very slow. 🙂
