  2. 1 splurge day only
  3. exercise 20 minutes x 2 days

I'm starting off small again since I fell off the wagon so badly. I don't want to give up, so I want to set some attainable goals to give myself some positive reinforcement.

Scarlett O'Hara had it so right:
"Tomorrow is another day".
Don't give up, you've been doing so well, and you'll feel so great when you meet all this week's goals!

Struggler said...

Whoops, sorry Penny, I just realized I chose almost the same words you did. Must get some more caffeine down me before messing up the blogosphere with comments!

You've done well. Starting any new habit takes time to sink in, so don't let the past bog you down. You're positive attitude will help you achieve your goal. Good luck!

WOW!~ I never lost more than a pound a week. 4 pounds!~ That's awesome.

Tina said...

Thanks for all your support, everyone!

Erin - I have a lot more weight to lose than you ever did, so it comes off faster. AND I really do think a lot of it this week was water weigt from salt.

Hi Tina - do you think that maybe you should try to eat all 1800 calories each day? Sometimes I see your totals and know that I would be DYING on so few calories. After a week at 1500 or less per day I'd want to splurge too!

Tina said...

Kasmira - Thanks for the advice. I do generally try to eat all my calories. Trust me, sometimes I am in the kitchen calculating exactly what I have room left for. :) Generally on the days that I am not pretty close to 1800, it's b/c I saved some calories for dessert and then just wasn't hungry for it. Or I poured myself a glass of wine, but then didn't drink it. But I think you are right, I really need to make an effort to eat more on those days where I come in under 1500. Maybe I'll do a minimum of 1600 and a max of 1800. That's a range where I usually don't have hunger issues.

Kasmira's right - you need to eat all your calories or your body will just hang onto everything. Food = fuel! Feed your body what it wants: unprocessed whole food, whole grains, lean protein.

And it's one day at a time. Just make it through one day. You can do it!
