Back, kind of

Two days in a row! Yes!

I also weighed in this morning. Down to 320 point something, down from 321 point something last week. This is especially good considering that I ate a pint on Ben and Jerry's ice cream last night for dessert. (I know, I know.)

Today hasn't been much better, I am afraid. But, I think I will start tracking my food sometime this week (tomorrow?) and getting back into that habit. Baby steps, always my motto.

Fall always feels like a fresh start to me. No better time than the present, I know.

Thanks for sticking around!

Oh Dear.

Where did you go, September?

Wow, I am sad that there has only been one post in September up until now. Maybe I can make up for it a little bit with whatever of the month is left.

To catch you up with what's been going on (thanks Chrissy, for the prompt!), well, as far as my goals associated with this blog go, mostly nada. Things got pretty stressful and all over the place concerning the former-impending move on top of seasonal craziness at work, and now life is getting back to some semblance of normal. Kind of. Better than it was.

We're still pretty broke, so I haven't gone too crazy on the eating front. I weigh myself intermittently. Last weigh late last week put me in the 321 neighborhood. Not great, not terrible.

I had a weird payment issue with my gym recently that finally is getting resolved, so I keep thinking about stopping by and actually using the place a few times a week again. I haven't walked, much less run, in I don't know how long. The past week or so I've been very tired and sore all over... I'm not sure what's up with that but hope it passes soon.

Anyway. I still think a lot about my goals. I still want the same things for myself. I have not totally given up; who knows, maybe with this post I will jog myself into starting fresh? Sitting here right now I feel I would like to commit to posting every day again at the very least. And weighing every day. It's something!

I haven't even been keeping up with my blog reading, though I did have a dream one night last week that I met Pasta Queen in person... I recognized her walking down the street and ended up staying at her house. Weird.

So that's that. I hope you are all doing well and that you'll continue cheering me on. I'm sorry for the long absence.

Official Weigh-in: Maintaining

Weight: 318
Total Weight loss: 18.6 pounds

Hi everyone! I am still around, just not entirely focused on the task at hand. So much is going on in my personal life, including a big impending move to the country, that I am just trying my best to keep an eye on things loosely, try not to eat too much crap, and hang on to what I have lost so far. And hey, averaging a pound loss a week is nothing to be ashamed of at all!

And on that front, so far, so good. I've been able to keep my weight below 320. Sure, I'd rather be below 315, but considering how long I was in that neighborhood I seriously am happy to be consistent here for now, at least until life stabilizes again—which, for the way things are going, may not be until after the holidays when I am starting to plant seeds for winter sowing.

It would be great to lose another 10 pounds by the end of the year, and that is certainly doable... I am taking EVERYTHING one day at a time, though.

I hope this finds you well. I haven't been keeping up too regularly with other people's blogs, so feel free to tell me about any successes or difficulties you've had in the past few weeks!
