My Motto : PROGRESS, not Perfection

Weekly Goals

Each week, I check in with myself and set some goals for the week (usually no more than 3).

I believe in making small, incremental changes and building on success (babysteps).

Here’s a list of some of what I think I’ve mastered :

  • Drinking enough water
  • Checking in with myself weekly
  • Having the right food at home (plenty of veggies, cut up veggies in the fridge)
  • Eating mostly seasonally and mostly organic
  • Eating mostly whole foods
Some of what I still need to work on
  • Not checking out (and regaining weight) when life gets more complicated
  • Exercising regularly
  • Thinking while I eat (eating mindfully)
  • Finding a way to diet in a restricted enough way that I lose enough to stay motivated
  • … this list of things I need to work on is pretty long, actually… it’s the point of this blog!

Weight Chart

Monday morning weigh ins have always been a good motivator for me to not throw it all to hell on the weekend, and I do believe weekly weighing is a better gauge of progress than daily.  Although I sometimes step on the scale in between Mondays, the day that counts is Monday.

I also keep a google doc which shows more history than skinnyr, but this always shows the current situation.

The starting weight goes back to  February 2009 – I’ve been actively engaged in managing my weight without a break since then.  I have years of off & on before that – my high weight was 250+.  You can read more about my weight history through the years if you’re interested. Graph
