It has been awhile since I have posted. The end of the school year got so busy, but I have been truckin' along with LAWL - albeit slowly. I'm now down 17.2 pounds and feeling much better. I am not a perfect LAWL member, sometimes I do count calories (oops!! But I like my starches, really I do!!
) but I try to follow it as closely as I can for as many days in a row as I can. Since the red plan is approximately 1450 calories (without lites), I figure I can't go wrong counting calories here and there.
Okay, here's the problem. Now, with the kids home and the loss of structure, I find myself feeling a little "loosy goosey" about this and not as serious as I need to be. I also find myself falling into the "poor pitiful me" syndrome thinking "I can't have 'nuthin good!"
So, what I need is something to look forward to!! I want to know what ya'll are doing to keep your motivation during the summer!
Also, what happens in stabilization and maintenance? Maybe if I can remind myself, "Hey, don't eat waffle now, you'll get it back (whenever that is)" it might help me stick to my plan more closely.
I don't want to screw this up!!
P.S. DD is doing really well also. She is down 13 pounds and that was only being halfway serious about it. I think starting high school this year is the push that she needed. Although, she does her fair share of griping about this, too. What teenager wants to be watching her weight, right? She was offered a job by one of our church members who owns a fast food place and she declined. She told him that she couldn't be around french fries all day!
