Refocusing-Goal 100

July 11, 2012

Ok, I have not added anything to the blog lately.  That’s going to change.  I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to say but it’s a little daunting.  If I want to make this a legitimate record of the journey I am taking to live healthfully and purposefully then I need to be completely honest and share the stumbles as well as the strides.

Lately I have been in a holding pattern and have felt good about that.  I hit the 99 pounds down (six months ago) but never made it to the 100 mark.  Certainly, most important goal is sustainability.  As hard as it is to loose weight, conventional wisdom says that the hardest part is maintenance.  I didn’t consciously think about it but a natural consequence of the weight loss slowing down was the shift in priorities towards the goal of maintenance.  The more I stabilized, the more I experimented to see the boundaries of gain, maintain or loose.

Over the past five months I have put back about five pounds.  That doesn’t sound like a lot and it isn’t BUT if I don’t make a conscious decision to resume a more aggressive attack on the last 20 pounds I hope to loose, I will be in danger of slowly slipping back further and further.

I am going to us this blogs as my new accountability measure.  I will try to blog in “real time” so that i have a responsibility to stay focused.  I thank you in advance for reading this blog and for functioning as a silent partner in my life long health journey.
