Continuous Improvement

I've often joked that losing weight has been my second full-time job. I'd been a professional dieter since grade school.

Now I look at things a bit differently. It's not as much about the number on the scale as it is about overall health. I'm always looking for ways to get better, and set goals that don't ignore the scale, but don't use it as my only barometer of success.

I keep a "dashboard" of indicators to monitor my health now. How do I FEEl? What are my measurements? What are some small ways I can improve each month? I still have some weight to lose, but now I'm training for the long haul. I'm learning how to make this weight loss stick!

I am a member of BE.com. But that is one place I see a LOT of people wanting to know how soon they can get back to eating what they love. It's frustrating, because I get that from people in my life, too. And it's hard to explain WHY I can't ever go back to that way of eating. It almost killed me. We don't really have anyone here in town who specializes, but my surgical group has an online support and meetings once a month, and they are a great help. Day to day. It never was going to be any different than that- day to day. Glad you are doing well.
