Three weeks ago, I mentioned that I was tired of dealing with the ups and downs of dieting and that I had decided to go with a steady, healthy, day-by-day, week-by-week, month-by-month approach to weight loss. My goal? To lose one pound per week. And, three weeks later, I’m down three pounds.
In the past, I’d be discouraged by the fact that I had ‘only’ lost three pounds. But, now, I’m excited! Why? Because, instead of depending on some super-silly weight loss fad, I’m simply walking more, eating less, and exercising (a little). Slow and steady might be boring, but it’s working!
I’ve been away at camp this past week. Now that I’m home, I can refocus on my blogging – and my weight loss. It feels good to do something ‘the right way’. Now, I just need to remember my one pound a week plan, and refrain from starving myself. My body needs fuel – healthy fuel – and I need to remember this.
