Plugging right along. Given my track record, I could conceivably make my goal by next week’s weigh-in, or it may take three weeks. Since I’m not trying to make reach 190 by a particular date, I don’t particularly care when it occurs, so long as I don’t take a month or longer. If that happens, then it’ll be because I temporarily abandoned all sense and reason in regards to both my exercise regimen and how I eat.
As stated in the past, taking weight off is easy but keeping it within ±5 lb of my target remains problematic. I don’t want to start looking ahead to much, but once I make my goal I will need to adjust my food intake for maintenance mode. Based on previous experience, attempting to make my exercise routine less strenuous just won’t work — best to keep the one I’ve consistently used for weight loss. So, it won’t hurt to start thinking now about alterations to what and how much I eat.
Finally, and this is also potentially thinking too far ahead, I feel like I should treat myself when I make goal. I’ll need to figure out what it should be and how to properly compensate for the increased caloric load that particular week. I have nothing in mind yet, but I’m sure something will occur to me.
