I really have such a maintenance mindset right now. I am not focused on losing, and I need to be. I have been thinking more about the fitness aspect instead. Not that there’s anything wrong with that 🙂
I keep thinking that if I push the workouts, the weight loss will follow. I know that gaining muscle is going to keep the scale put for a bit, but I also feel like I really should be losing as well. I am not ready to maintain yet, as I am just in the overweight category according to BMI (yes, I know it is a poor tool, but that’s all I have).
Okay, I guess I have been losing a bit, so that’s not totally fair to say. On July 1st I weighed 149.8, and today was 144.6 – so a little bit of progress in scale terms. At least it wasn’t upward, like happens to a lot of people during the summer months!
I have had a few cupcakes here, a few cookies there and a wee bit more eating out going on. I guess just the slowness of the loss feels like maintenance.
I just want to be at goal already. I mean, come on! 4 years and I am starting to lose patience LOL! I just need to refocus – I can see how my mind is all over the place in this post. Probably because I am a little bit tired, too.
