    Imagine yourself at your goal. What do you think will be different then? Are you thinking about physical, mental, emotional, or other kinds of differences from your life today?

    If I'm honest, with more than 100# to lose, I can't quite imagine myself there yet. That's far away and smaller goals feel more attainable and keep me motivated. That said, offering a different perspective here feels at least somewhat important.

    I know there will be great physical benefits. I am fortunate to not have any serious health issues, though I am certainly obese. I'm well aware of how much easier movement and certain parts of my life will be, but I've also not felt significantly limited by my weight in my life. I do look forward to having things be easier, lighter, less laborious and not having even a fleeting thought about whether I can handle a strenuous hike or adventure.

    What has always troubled me is that so many other aspects of my life are terrific, in control, just as I have always wanted. Dream-like, really. So, this is my achilles heal, if you will. It makes it all the more difficult - why is it so hard to get this one thing right? It feels like a problem I will be so very proud to solve - for life. And it will be a personal achievement that will not be shared. It will be my win.

    Finally, I've always been very careful to remind myself that there is very much that will remain the same. Emotionally, not much will change. Many of the personal challenges that exist in my life will still exist. Stress from being a working, entrepreneurial mom - that's not going to go away because I weigh less.

    Hope some of this makes sense. I'm working to be realistic about this lifestyle change because taking it one day, one meal, one walk, one bite at a time is how I seem to be staying on track. Don't get me wrong, the result of changes thus far feels fab. This is going to be a long road for me - and then, maintenance.

    Folks, I'm in serious crunch time right now work-wise. I'm checking in to monitor progress, but I'm going to be flying low with posts for about a week or more. Bear with me!

    Stay strong, Gutbusters!

    Exercised?: No.
    Calories?: Yes
    Tracked?: Yes

    Did not get out for a walk today (quite warm) and did not do my usual make up bodyweight exercises when I don't get out.

    Well under for calories though.

    Will try get back to my usual tomorrow (weather permitting - bad weather is expected).

    Exercise: Yes
    Calories: No
    Tracked: Tracked them today, by memory, so I may have missed some calories.

    Late gathering with friends after long commute and work day. I had some a handful of chips and guacamole and probably a regular snack-bag size of M&Ms (friend had brought the mint ones). No alcohol or other treats that people brought.

    Exercise: Yes
    Calories: No
    Tracked: Yes

    Early early mornings and late late nights are wearing on me. A handful of leftover chips with guacamole put me over my calorie target for the day. I'm exhausted, and not yet done tonight, but I did make time to exercise and cook a decent dinner for us.
