Just Maintain

After reaching my first goal, my plan was to take a month off from losing weight and just try to maintain the weight loss and to lull my body into a false sense of comfort. I hate it when I override my original plans because I think I know better after putting more thought into it. I need to remember that my first instinct is usually the right one.

Part of the problem is that when I'm on a roll I want to go, go, go. I'm on a roll dammit, why stop now? I had lost three additional pounds when the little voice said, "Maintain". Noooooooooooo!! Against my better judgement, which isn't always better, I continued with my original plan to give my body a rest and to focus on maintaining my 30lb weight loss. I enjoyed myself over spring break and indulged on Easter Sunday. (Oh See's Candies get thee behind me Satan. Or not.) I still continued to count calories and to exercise.

The four weeks will be up on May 1st and then it's time to start working toward Goal 2. Believe it or not, I'm actually excited to see how close I can get to my goal by the first week of August. We're going back to Yosemite then and I want to get a picture of me at Yosemite this year and compare it to last year. I know, I need a life. But, honestly, sometimes it's the little things that keep me going.
