    JGM10D Round 129
    🎃🕸🕷🎃🕷🎃🕷🕸🎃
    🎃🕸🕷🎃🕷OCTOBER🕷🎃🕷🕸🎃
    🎃🕸🕷🎃🕷🎃🕷🕸🎃

    Looking forward:
    You are not stuck at home
    You are SAFE at home
    One word can change your attitude
    One cough can change your life

    Take care! Stay safe!

    October focus: improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale
    Aims:
    2020 Focus:
    • Stabilise weight under 150
    • Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
    • Make sure I have prepared healthy snacks available
    • Cut down on eating between meals by keeping busy


    Never give up! Never give in!
    Recent Back Story:
    • 2018 goal: get back down to 160 ✅
    • 2019 goal: proceed down to 150 ✅ with 2 months to spare
    • 2020 goal: maintain below 150 dropping slowly down to 145 ✅ Working on it. Strength training has slowed progress, but that’s okay.
    • That's a WIN in my book!
    • 2020
    • Focus: maintenance! I might even manage to lose a bit more ever so slowly.
    • (One good thing about Covid is that I don't have to traverse the minefield of family celebration meals.)

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    Day/Weight/Comment

    10/14 - 142 - This was a nice surprise this morning. We'll see if it sticks for tomorrow.
    10/15 - 142.5 - This is fine.
    10/16 - 142 - Nice to see a little drop for the weekend.
    10/17 - 143 - We spent a beautiful autumn evening around a bonfire eating pizza and chicken from a favorite local restaurant. We also enjoyed hot cider spiked with whiskey.
    10/18 - 143.5 - This was not unexpected and I'm just planning to eat at weight loss calories this week to compensate for the weekend.
