so close and yet so far
The scale moved down again. I'm still just a hair over my lowest weight since starting this blog, and tantalizingly close to being in the 150s. I know that I can get there, I just need to track, to stay under my points, and to get out and move. My old Weight Watchers journal was depressing because it had too many blank pages in it, so I got myself a cute spiral notebook instead. So far today I'm doing well, though yesterday I went over about 6 points from what I planned. I begin my weeks on Monday so that if Sunday is a rough day, I still have a chance for a fresh start.
We talked about maintaining today and it really helped me see the finish line, which is really not that far away -- just a little more than 5 pounds to go. This time around I am going to do maintenance completely by the book so I know how to do it right. Last time, I think my attitude was, "Hooray, I'm finished! Bring on the cake!"
