Two New Time-Limited Promises, made to myself this time

These days are really busy for me as well as a bit stressful. I'm finding myself eating near my maximun calorie allotment (2500) every day, and I'm eating more sweets than I should be. Quite simply, I'm eating this many calories and sweets because I can.

So, I'm making myself two new time-limited promises:

Starting tomorrow:

  • Until I weigh less than 185 pounds, I won't eat more than 2,200 calories on any day (other than the same days that are already excluded with my 2500 promise, such as Thanksgiving Day and Christmas).

  • Other than those excluded days, I'm not going to have any sweets until I weigh less than 185, in situations where I am in control. (This last part is an update.)
I'm eager to achive this weight, which has been my weight loss goal from the start, and this is the way to get there. 21 or so pounds to go.
