Slow and Steady Wins the Race, right?

Holding steady at 20 pounds gone. Still.

I'm getting frustrated, but hanging in there.

PSA: If you're new and wondering about my diet, please read the post linked in the sidebar. If you're wanting to try it yourself, check out the links, also in the sidebar. It's IMPORTANT.

Today, I'm going to begin challenging myself to go back to the beginning of this diet. Back to the basics. I was careful, in the beginning of the last round, to count every calorie, and make sure I was getting enough water. (Half my body weight in ounces. Which was 10 more ounces last round than it is now!) I'm going to go back to that, and take it one day at a time.

I CAN stop after this week, if I find that I'm burning out. But, with only ten more pounds to goal, it seems counterproductive to move to P3 and give myself three more weeks at 145-ish.  I'll have to gauge where I am one day at a time.

Which is what we should all be doing, right? Living one day at a time?

Crap, did I just start my own 12 step support group or something?


  1. Stopping by from ICLW! I just read through pounds and inches this past week and I'm currently trying to decide whether I want to go this alone or find a provider. There is a woman on MDC who offered to do a distant consult for me and she would provide me with the drops too, but with the support of that thread and the rest of the interwebs, I really think I could do it on my own. What kind of support system do you have? Is your hubby supportive?

  2. I hope that you're able to accomplish your goal. Good luck!

  3. Happy ICLW! Congrats on losing the 20 pounds and holding steady. That's awesome!
