It’s hard to believe that I am so close to goal. 14 pounds to go. At one pound a week, that is about 3-4 months! I am trying not to get excited, because I realize that all of this planning, exercising and thinking has all been practice for maintenance.
These habits I have developed over the last few years are what I will be doing for the rest of my life. I will have to monitor my food intake daily, I can’t just eat intuitively, that is not the type of eater I am. I recognize that, and so I need to work with it, rather than trying to force myself to be something I am not. And it is liberating to think that way!
The trick is going to be setting new goals, other than weight loss. I will have to find new activities. Maybe trying new fitness activities (roller blading maybe??)
