Positive Feedback Keeping Me Motivated

When I have a plateau with my weight loss, I tend to get a little discouraged.  On the other hand, when I lose a substantial amount, I’m more motivated to work harder and lose more weight.

My weight on Sunday was 230.8 lbs.  I was dehydrated from my 45-mile ride, so I knew it would go up again.  On Monday I weighed-in at 232.2 lbs.  It did go up, but not as much as I thought it would.

I’ve spent too much time in the high 230s.  It feels good to be in the low 230s.  Now I need to push harder to get into the 220s.

I did a partial commute on my bike yesterday.  I rode all the way into work today.  I left at 6:30 a.m. instead of 7:00.  It was very dark, but my new lights lit the way well.  Traffic was light for the first 20 minutes of the ride.  It was quite peaceful.

I’ve been doing better with my eating habits and exercise.  Losing weight will spur me on to continue.
