75.1kg, 9.1kg above goal weight
Trying to get into the swing of posting weekly. I still have my cough, so I'm not going to the gym right now. Unfortunately my doctor only works 2 days a week, and she's fully booked out this week, so it looks like I'm going to see her next week. I'm still losing weight though, which is nice.
I have noticed a psychological change in terms of how I'm feeling about my weight loss and my body. I think that's because I've reached the 3 months until goal weight. That's the point where based on normal rates of weight loss, you can pretty much say in 3 months you'll be at goal.
I am wary of stating a specific date when I should be at goal, I've definitely been burnt in the past with my endless spreadsheet calculations. This year would be nice, even if it were December 31st.
I'm working on a motivation system for maintenance. Obviously I'm not good at maintenance, I was at goal weight back in 2012 for about 3 months. That's not long enough!
When I started this blog back in 2009, I had a motivational system of no supermarket coffee, haircuts or cinema viewings if I wasn't at a new low weight. I think that I should do something similar now. I think that:
I can't get a haircut, I can't go to the cinema, I can't buy coffee from the supermarket unless I'm at goal weight.
There are exceptions to every rule, the trick is to have these exceptions relatively rare so I don't become dependent on them, and let things slide.
I also don't want to rebound and gain, only to go through the same thing yet another time, endless weight loss.
