A note about the picture: I look sweaty because I’d just gotten back from the gym when this was taken. It was taken by my daughter, Frances. She says, “Mom, I hope people don’t look at your pictures [in reverse order] and think, ‘what has that lady been eating?!'”
Well, I’ve gotten through the stress of getting the big kids off to school without too much damage to the weight loss. Let’s get past “holding steady” and get back to decreasing calories in.
“If you don’t love it, you won’t stick to it.”
I understand this sentiment, and I admit I don’t “love” decreasing caloric intake. Though I don’t mind the treadmill like I thought I would, and I do like lifting stronger weights — 30 lb. dumbbells for chest presses is something I’m proud of!
I don’t “love” changing diapers, though I’ve changed 1,000+ over the years. I can be a big girl and tolerate inconvenience for a greater good.
