Weight Loss Wednesday: Maintaining

I'm a fruit eating turtle.

Well I haven't been losing, but I haven't been gaining either.  It's been six months and I've only lost nine of the twenty pound goal.  I'm not unhappy at all with my progress.  I figure the slow and steady has gotten me into some slightly better habits and because of that I am not yo-yo dieting.  Sis #2 is on this 17 day diet thing and has already lost 10 lbs.  I've taken to some of her recipes, but I'm not getting on that treadmill.  I don't want to spend the rest of my life eating menu plans in 17 day increments.  I've made some changes, seen some results, and when I discipline myself into drinking more water and increasing the veggies I think I will make some more progress.  I remind myself that I'm the turtle, slow and steady.  

Very little.  A few lunges and push ups here and there.
Averaging 3 glasses a day.
Cutting back on the carbs and aiming for more veggies, (yuck).
I caved and ate some grocery store eclairs and man were they bad.
Although I ate the eclairs I ended up finding them too sweet, perhaps my sweet tooth is not so sweet.

  1. You are drinking more water than before. Good for you! And yes, it should come off slow but I understand you frustration.
