I've got to the end of Month
And for months 1-6 I wrote long and comprehensive reviews, looking back at what I had achieved and setting formal goals for the next month. Month 7 I was away on holiday and a review didn't feel appropriate.
I thought I needed it to stay on track. I don't think I do.
I am as focused, as determined as I have ever been. I am on track, on plan.
Mentally I am moving away from the idea that this is a "diet plan", a temporary fixture in my life. I no longer see it as a period of time I need to count and formalise.
I AM looking forward with great excitement to being at goal, wearing goal size clothes and living like that but I feel I am on an eating plan for life. I might eat more and different things at goal, but not THAT much more nor THAT different and the plan.....a plan is for life. I don't want it to end, it's not going to end.
I feel like what started as some hard challenge that I needed to count the days and months to be able to achieve has become normal, ordinary and easily managed. It's stopped being a different thing and become my normal.
I do want however, at the 8 month point to thank you all, as I have done every month for your continued support and encouragement. I love the challenges you give me. I've been looking at wearing coloured clothes and will do that now, I love your suggestions and take them all in.
