Weigh-In … Rebooting

Today’s Weight: 169.0
Loss/Gain:  -1.0 lb.
Yes, I am pleased to see the scale going back down.  In fact, I’m pleased to actually get hungry during the day.  A good sign I’m overeating is when I’m never truly hungry, and even full more than not.  Unfortunately, that was how I was feeling the majority of the time the last couple of weeks.  So, I appreciate feeling hunger again. 
I also appreciate knowing I’m not alone in my struggles.  It’s easy when you go through a slump in any kind of journey to feel like you’re the only one.  Even when you know you’re really not.  As I’ve been catching up around blog land I’m finding a familiar theme of needing to get on track after summer break.  From people still working on losing weight to people who have been in maintenance for some time. 
I’m guessing Diane noticed this, because last Monday she wrote a good post on rebooting and getting back on track in your healthiness journey.  I’m taking it to heart and hope you’ll find a minute to read the post if you too need some encouragement to get back on your way down the scale.  Click here to read Labor Day Reboot for a Healthier Lifestyle.
Reading her article made me think about what I need to do to get back on track.  What are my goals?  For me, it’s all about getting back to the basics:

  • Drinking at least 64 oz. of water a day.
  • Cutting down sweets.
  • Staying within my calorie budget.
  • Exercise (usually the easiest part for me)
These are things I’m going to continue working on.  And I might even print out this little card I found while blog hopping last night and make it into a magnet for my fridge:
So, here’s to rebooting, not giving up and pressing onward and, er, downward.  🙂  Have a good weekend!

    I am definitely printing that out for my fridge! I am definitely in a rut. I've had bronchitis for 4 weeks, and without exercise, my food choices are not the best. I plan on walking a 5k tomorrow I signed up for before I got sick – I am finishing one way or another!

    Good luck on your 5K!!


  3. Excellent Leah! I like your easy, concrete goals because they are doable and really do work. I need to do better on the drinking water part. Especially as fall approaches.
