View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Day 3 of buckling down - I'm hungry, which means its working.
I'm weighing every day. Funny how the same weigh-in number can feel and look different enough to notice. I am enjoying the tracking aspect, making a game of it, and am planning some rewards along the way.
I have a 'goal' which is to be on-track eating-wise until 7/1, which to me means as close to 1200 cals (gross) as I can get, with one splurge meal a week. I'll see where my weight is at that point, and will decide what to do then. I would be deliriously happy if I could get near 130, but honestly don't know if that's possible without true misery. I need something sustainable, especially as I think about the fact that I'll be in law school soon which means sitting an extra 2 days week. Fortunately, I do much better eating-wise when I have structure, so I will likely eat BETTER during law school than I generally do on the weekends otherwise. I need to remember that I'm just not happy at my current weight, and that 5 to 7 lbs makes all the difference in the world to the way I feel and the way my closes fit. I need to keep that top of mind. It is worth the discipline that it takes to get there and maintain it.
