Down 3.3 in 5 days, not bad! Earlier this week I was under 175, but I had two restaurant meals yesterday (still stayed pretty close to my calorie goal).

Of course, I will have to see how this all works in the long term.

To be clear here, I am not really "eating more and weighing less." I'm shooting for a more realistic target and hitting it more consistently instead of going over and then deciding to start over again on another day.

Consistent achievement of a realistic goal wins out over perfectionism and unrealistic expectations. It's also a more pleasant way to live.

  1. Thank you for turning me on to Fat2Fit. I know I've heard it all before, but the one thing that I take away from them is living like that person you want to be today. I've been asking myself if the healthy, fit me would really do this or eat that. I feel like it's helping me make better decisions. Good for you, and thanks!

  2. woohoo onya jen! :)

  3. I love the very last sentence of this entry. It's something I need to say to myself every single day.

  4. Your current approach of being realistic and hitting that target more consistently is much more humane and pleasant - and it seems to be working. So it wins all around!

    Enjoy your vacation!
