    Just because Covid restrictions aren’t compulsory doesn’t mean they’re not necessarily.
    People are still dying out there……… and the numbers are on the rise again.
    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷

    February focus:
    maintain weight < 145 (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!

    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!

    @deepwoodslady - Donna, I keep jolly ranchers around too for my sweet tooth!! Better than other things I could eat lol. I try not to go over 2 a day when I have them and it is usually at night time or if I am on a zoom meeting -- never more than 4! :)
