Absent, but present

Ugh. For some reason I'm finding it hard to write here regularly. I certainly have a lot to say, so it's not that. Pure laziness, I suppose? Not making time for it? Sure, I'm busy, but... big deal, isn't everyone?

So, I thought that I would at least pop in and say hello, in case anyone was wondering what happened.

Nothing happened.

I have not been active here, but I am still plugging along on my little program. It's a lifetime commitment I have made, truly. I'm doing ALL the things most of the time. (I do need to go back to the gym, though... oops! My trainer texted me a cute note this morning.)

My weight had been futzing around between 353 and 355 for what seemed like weeks. It might have been. I had one dip down to 351, but it was a fluke. Until, that is, I went on vacation last week. When I came back, I was down to 351 again and have stayed there since. Which is fine.

I'm realizing that what I am after now is consistency and progress in the sense of not backpedaling. I don't care too much anymore about how fast the weight comes off, as long as I am on a downward trend. Even if that trend is achingly ever so slight a slant down. I'm happy that what I am doing is totally sustainable and totally livable, like ALL the time.

Anyway. I've said more than I meant to in the first place.

I'm here. I'm good.

How about you?


  1. I'm with you--"forward" all the time is unrealistic, and just keeping from going backwards is great!

    Btw, you won the elimination diet book, please email me at crabby mcslacker at gmail dot com with your mailing address just in case--not sure if its a real book or an electronic version but wanna get your info to the sponsor so they can deliver. Thanks!

    1. Crabby, hooray! That is fantastic! I just sent you an email. :)

      Thanks for the comments. They really help! xo
