I've been lamenting my lack of progress--stuck at 73 lbs lost for almost 3 weeks.
This morning I MADE myself get on the scale and Lo & Behold! 3 pounds have melted away! (well ... since I weigh-in first thing in the a.m. after I get rid of the "night accumulated water", I don't supposed "melted" is the most accurate term, but since this is a family site I will forgo the use of "pissed away"....
This puts me only 5 lbs away from my 3rd Cycle goal of 219 lbs, AND I'm now only (only!) 25 lbs away from being under 200!!! (haven't been THERE since 1978!!)
BUT... I find blogging a hard habit to maintain--almost as hard as getting off my gluetous maximus and walking every day. It somehow seems a selfish indulgence.
This may be due to me only feeling the urge to tappity-yak when I've either dropped some poundage (yeah me) or have eaten too danged much (poor me).
Often I have found on this journey to excellent health (having achieved "better" health after dropping 50 lbs) that a stumbling block in my progress is often due to my not having the proper perspective on a problem.
So I Ask You: HOW DOES BLOGGING ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY HELP YOU?
