How do you know when you're there?

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I've always had a pretty stringent weight goal--and I mostly stayed within a few pounds, always "working toward" the last few pounds. (Not the recent gain after vacation--that really was a glitch! But I'm back to where I had been and usually stay)

My "weight chart" range is right where I am--though I remind myself they are just estimates. Yet more and more I've realized I'm afraid to accept that I'm at a good weight. I'm think I'm afraid I'll slack off--and also, I'm afraid it means this is as good as I can get!

But more and more I see that further changes need to come from exercise/weights/muscle improvement, and that I'm pretty much where I need to be weight-wise. And for whatever reason, that is hard for me. But I'm going to focus on maintaining--which is actually VERY hard--and on muscle improvement.

OK, I'll probably keep my goal where it is on my tracker for a bit longer! And I'll probably still try for 2 more pounds. But in my heart, I know that this place I'm at now--within a couple of pounds at least-is the right place weight-wise...and I have to focus on muscle.

    Building muscle is such a good thing... you will see so many benefits by adding in some strength and toning - and some pretty good MENTAL benefits, too. There's something very satisfying about seeing yourself get stronger.

    Most of us are never going to feel we have it exactly right. The hardest thing, I think, is accepting the parts of our body style we can't change. I have an apple shape and I would so much prefer the pear shape.

    I continue to believe that you are doing great and that you should go easy on yourself. The exercising you are doing will definitely help in the maintaining and in weight loss.
