(Almost) back where I started


I am here again. I think I'm going to stay this time.

Thing is, I knew that gained a lot of weight back in recent months. I even figured that I probably weighed more than ever before. I'm down to one pair of wearable pants that are suitable for work. This sucks.

I finally decided to get new batteries for my scale, and I changed them out last night, weighed this morning.

Turns out I was actually happy! 343.8.

I know. WOW. But at the same time, I was seriously thinking that I was in the 360s or something, so this made me very happy. I am still under my highest weight ever, but closing in. 350's not that far away. But hopefully it will never be so close again.

Other areas of my life (yes, my life is sort of in segments: the weight segment, the money segment, the work segment, the relationship segment, etc. etc. ad infinitum) have been pretty good lately. I actually have a better handle on my money than I ever have before in my life, and that is HUGE for me... nearly as huge as if I had gotten a similar handle on my weight. So I am thinking, surely I can do the weight thing now that the money thing is under control?

Anyway, I plan to weigh every day for the data (Physics Diet), drink more water, and eat less in general. I'm still thinking about going to the gym while I still have a membership there. It expires in May, but by that time the weather will be fine for walking and running outside again.

I refuse to give up, no matter how many times I have to come back here and do this.


  1. Pleased you are keeping things up and happy with where you are. Wishing you the best of weeks

  2. I applaud you on your decision to not give up. Weight has been my biggest struggle my entire adult and teenage life and I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to just give up. Somehow I always find the resilience to give it another go. It sounds like you're the same way.

  3. I saw a post from you a long while back in the runners community at LJ, so I found your blog and have been reading but not commenting for a while. I just wanted to break my silence to tell you how excited I am to see you back! You can do this. Don't give up!

  4. I'm glad you're back. We've missed you! It's a long journey - but nothing that is impossible. Step by Step, we'll both get there.
