I got weighed and reset my goals this morning. I charged my armband and put it back on. (I still have the seemingly permanent bruise/ring around my arm.)
I set a goal of 1 pound a week, which means I'll reach goal on June 25, 2012. To do that, I have to burn 2250 calories each day, and consume less than 1750. That seems reasonable. My moderate activity would have to be 30 minutes, and my steps would have to be 8000. Again, that all seems reasonable.
Hard thing is, I'm not a reasonable, normal person when it comes to food.
I am trying to keep in mind one of most basic philosophies. Ths philosophy can be summed up in one of many quotes, including:
"Live the life you aspire to."
"Live like you've already arrived."
"Act as if."
"Fake it until you make it."
"Eat like thin people do."
It's all basically the same idea.
Habits, habits, habits.
