    🍄🍁🍂🍁🍄🍁🍄🍁🍂🍁🍄
    🍄🍁🍄🍂 SEPTEMBER 🍂🍄🍁🍄
    🍄🍁🍂🍁🍄🍁🍄🍁🍂🍁🍄

    I was after an elusive 85 lbs loss 😂 but 83 will do me fine. (Now 84 😁)
    • in Maintenance for over 2 years.
    • Smart BMI - optimal weight.
    • Muscle/Fat %ages in normal range
    ldgqzhg1sbfo.jpg
    Just because Covid restrictions aren’t compulsory doesn’t mean they’re not necessarily. People are still dying out there………
    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷
    September focus:
    • maintain weight < 150 (I have been maintaining since July 2019)
    • Work on improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale

    I liked this so much I'm borrowing it.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180's; 170's; 160's; 150's;
    140's; 130's
    Aims:
    2021 Focus:
    • Maintain weight < 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 ✅ Strength training has slowed progress, but that’s okay.
    • That's a WIN in my book!
    • 2021
    • 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!
