Slow and Steady

Thursday, March 05, 2015

Did ok today. Wasn't feeling to hungry till after supper. Then i had 2 icecream bars. I'm still within my calories, but I was only going to have one.

I'm still getting over a cold so I didn't workout today. Probably won't start till Monday. That should give me enough time to be fully recovered. Plus it gives me a chance to slowly start into my new eating habits first.

I plan to work into everything slower then I did last time. Give my body and mind time to adjust to everything. My calorie limit isn't as low as last time. So I'll lose a little slower but as long as I'm losing thats fine, and my workout is less. I'll change it up as I get further along. I guess what I'm trying for right now is to just stick with it. I've been on and off again with weight loss so many times I'm like a yoyo lol. So hopefully the slow and easy approach will help me stick with it this time.

    Slow and steady is essential to permanent lifestyle change. You will lose mainly fat instead of muscle mass and you will have less risk of injury.
    Take it one day at a time and take pictures and measurements every month. Even if the scale says maintenance or gain, compare those measurements and pictures, you'll probably be surprised at the reduction!
    You can do it! Make March an awesome month! Woohoo!

    I did the same thing - backed off a little on the calorie limit and the exercise routine. I found that trying too hard caused speedy loss and then major backsliding for me. I hope that starting out pacing myself helps to succeed in the long run. Good luck and hope you get better soon!
