If I may quote Florida Evans, Damn, damn, DAMN!!!
Ok, today I weighed 222, which is closer to 220, but I really thought I would hit 220 this week, and I'm putting everything on hold waiting for it!! Well, not everything, but I am waiting for it. Clearly, if I don't weigh 220 tomorrow, I will ask for a calorie reduction at ediets. I admit I'm scared of that. Calorie reduction means less tasty foods and more likelihood of hunger. :-( But, 220 must be achieved, and you well know I am sick of dangling above it.
I do realize that I am hovering around 221-223 now instead of 223-225 and 225-227 as I had been before, but the weight loss has just gotten so slow now. It's like an event horizon, or the graph of 1/x - you get closer and closer to your goal but you get slower and slower so you NEVER ACTUALLY GET THERE!!
Meanwhile, today (as if today alone could make a difference) I am skimming miniature amounts from my meal plan. This morning I passed on a cup of soy milk I was supposed to have with breakfast. Maybe I'll do some more of that today.
I am still withholding myself from candy and sweets due to a pledge I made with fellow blogger, Jenn. So, I've had not even a taste of it, except for the occasional sweet-tasting item from my meal plan, like the honey whole wheat English muffins I already had stocked for myself. Sometimes it's a little easier to just deny yourself these indulgences rather than try to figure out for yourself HOW MUCH indulgence to allow yourself.
I'm also still on the 3 workouts per week pledge, and getting ready to do my 3rd workout this week - the yoga DVD. Three workouts per week of yoga and cardio and weights is not enough to see enough improvement - but it's still better than zero workouts per week. Maybe tomorrow I'll do a fourth and get to the gym before it closes.
