Hello Everyone - Hope you are all doing well on your plans and just in general too
I've done good so far this week, staying on track. I'm trying to figure out things I can change that will help keep me motivated. Sometimes I get so tired of thinking about food all the time. I know that is part of the reason why I would always quit tracking and watching what I ate after I got to a comfortable weight - because it just takes a lot of effort to eat healthy and stay on track.
I have cut back some on my exercise since I was really pushing myself too much and was a bit obsessed with getting at least 20,000 steps a day. I don't need that level of activity to stay healthy and keep my weight off so I'm trying to do a more reasonable amount.
I guess it's just going to take awhile to get past the mind frame that I need to see a loss on the scale to be successful. I don't know if everyone goes through that once they reach goal or if maybe it's more of a concern for people who had a lot of weight to lose like I did.
fairchildk, good for you not carrying over into day on the food. I hope you are having a great Wednesday.
cj59, I find that I think a lot about food also when planning and tracking. 20K steps is a lot to try to meet every day. I have my fitbit set for 10K and try to meet that. If I go over that's great, if I am under that's okay too.

Met my friend on the towpath this morning for our c25K training. It is so fun to have a partner.
Hello Everyone - Hope you are all doing well on your plans
sunrose - Hope you enjoyed your walk today
Fairchild - Good for you being able to cut back on carbs, I would really have trouble with that even though I do eat less than I used to
wwlurker and Annette - I hope you are both O.K. and will check in when you get a chance
I'm doing pretty well today and have stayed on track since Monday. I'm hoping I can make it through the weekend. I have a mindset that the first day of the month is a day I can kind of overeat and I really need to get rid of that. Also a holiday weekend makes me think of treating myself too. It sure would be nice if I didn't have all these preconditioned thoughts in my head that I have to fight
It has been nicer to cut back on my exercise time and steps. It was taking up a lot of my energy working to get that much exercise in and I feel better with a more reasonable amount.
