Right Back Where I Started From

Weight: 327.8

That puts me back down a little, almost to where I started two weeks ago at 327.4. This is heartening, to say the least. The funny thing is that over the weekend, I didn't really try too hard on anything, so I don't know. Your guess is as good as mine, and maybe it was just a gift from the Universe to remind me how nice it feels when the scale reads something favorable. *shrugs*

Anyway, I'm going to give it a real college try this week again. I'm just going to keep trying. This week is a little less busy than last week was, so I think I have a better chance about staying on track. When you're busy, I've noticed, you tend to grab something, anything, whatever's convenient whether it is in your best interest or not. At the very least I would like to eat nice, square meals and try not to snack on crap. And, just maybe I will have been more adjusted to the time change that I can drag myself out of bed early enough to get a walk or run in before I get ready for work?

We'll see. To be honest, I have very low expectations for myself in this realm right now. I'll be thrilled if I can lose anything at all, even something ridiculous like .2 pounds or whatever.

I just don't want to end up back where I started last year. Please, just NO.


  1. Those words "I'm just going to keep trying" are SO POWERFUL! I'm sending you lots of good wishes for a really great week.

  2. Hey, I'm going to be totally bitchy here and say: If you're going to keep the blog, then you've got to KEEP BLOGGING, through everything. I love reading about your successes and your plans and determination, and how you get out there and go jogging (you rock my world with that!) but even your boring or angsty or not-so-good days are important. It's the truth of your experience that we're here to share with you. And that's the whole messy, long race with its false starts and wrong turns and changes in direction and changes in strategy, as well as the times when you're on pace and running smoothly from checkpoint to checkpoint. It isn't just about drinks at the finish line.

    Knowing what you're thinking/feeling/doing while in a slump (and to get yourself through a slump) is as important to me as reading about your high points.

    I guess lately I've felt that your blog entries aren't as emotionally involved as they used to be -- I feel like you're just patting us (your readers) all on our heads and sending us out to play instead of letting us in.

  3. So, please let us back in! :)
