My plan is to finish up 2008 strong.  I started strong.  I lost over 40 pounds but now since July have been bouncing around within a 5 pound range.  I’m done with that.  From one perspective it’s nice to know that I can maintain my loss.  I haven’t had any major  blow-out binges.  But, on the other hand, I’m no where near a weight that is healthy for me to maintain!  So, the journey must continue.  As it will for the rest of my life.  I’d love to lose another 40 pounds to finish out this year…but I’m not setting any goals in stone.  I have shared this desire with Josh, my personal trainer, and he is upping the intensity on my workouts.  This isn’t the magic solution though.  It’s my food!  Mostly being conscious about amounts I need to commit to recording on www.thedailyplate.com again.  It works great and it’s such a valuable tool for me when I use it.  So, I started that again today and I need to do it tomorrow.  Once I do it for a few days it becomes natural.  TBL challenge starts up again next week on 3FC and I’m excited about that also.  It’s a fun challenge.  So, I’m back in the saddle, or up on the Step Mill in this case, and going to work hard to stay on plan!!
