There is an expression that goes if you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you've always got & Albert Einstein said, "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. So, why am I sputtering all this garble you ask?
Because I CHANGED what I was doing.
For the first 6 weeks of my weight loss I didn't change my train of thought. Yes, I had up and down days, high calorie but mostly low calories days and some exercise here and there and everywhere...right? Well, then I got stuck on the concept of the zigzag method.
BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD IDEA!!
Why change something when it's working? Why fix something that isn't broken?
So, that being said I am no longer going to purposely 'do' the zigzag method. My goal is 1500 calories, no more no less, no exceptions.
The other thing that I have failed to do these last few weeks is make muffins. For the first 6 weeks I had 140 calorie muffins ready and made for my breakfast every morning to go with my coffee. I haven't made muffins in over 2.5 weeks. I better get on that tomorrow morning.
THANK YOU GOD FOR THE EPIPHANY AND THANK YOU MY READERS FOR RIDING MY ROLLER COASTER ALONG WITH ME. IT MAY BE A BUMPY RIDE BUT I'LL GET THERE!! YOU CAN BET YOUR ASS (OR MINE) ON IT!!!
Edited to add: I have a reward for myself (that I hope someone I love will gift me-LOL) when I reach 285 aka 40lbs lost. This beauty!! And she only costs $105.00!!!
