My weight again. In a good way.
This past month has been a bit of a see saw. Partly stress, partly bad food choices but I reached a low weight of 179.5 a month ago and haven't seen it again until today.
Oh happy dance.
This is big news for me, as I have a long history of detonating with my weight. I'll get down to a certain weight level, lose maybe 20-30 lbs consistently and then, start gaining weight back, 5 pounds here and there, always those little weight increments where you think "oh that's not too bad."
Then of course, you get back to the point where it was too bad and by then your morale and self esteem has just left to go off and sulk and sit in a corner because you haven't been listening to it. And it just seems impossible to get back on track and go through all of that all over again.
So this past month, with the 3 1/2 pounds variation all month, is huge. We're talking personal milestone here because it is, literally, the first time in my weight loss life that I didn't completely detonate and gain most if not of the weight back.
For the most part, we're talking maintenance during this month. So, all things considered, the chinese food and the not so good for me eating choices, and the fact that I've pretty much abandoned the slimfast thing altogther, this is pretty cool.
Who am I kidding. This is completely awesome.
Looks like I may have learned a little discipline and moderation after all.
So I'm back in the 170's which is a great way to start a day that will consist of a staff meeting and putting together our vendor bulletin.
And Mr. Data has been climbing around on the keyboard, a very good sign that he's feeling good.
And breakfast is going to consist of cocoa pebbles as i figure they're about as healthy and nutritious as those slimfast shakes/bars are.
179 1/2 lbs...this is huge.
