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".... emoticon OOPS! )

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.

    Congratulations! I'm also shocked that SP lets you say that - I've gotten the warning to remove profanity from my posts when there wasn't any of any kind, so I just assumed the filter catches anything that might upset someone somewhere.

    Well, sometimes it is just a pity fest for one, though I can usually count on a friend or two to sympathize and then kick me out of my funk. I use it a little as a running reminder of my goals, where I've been, where I'm going. I too find it difficult to get in a regular habit. Still working on that myself. Think how good it will feel to look back on this blog in 6 months and realize what you were working so hard for has happened, you have lost and are below 200, and by a good amount even! Use it as a yardstick to measure goals and progress. Use it because it is "me time" and you deserve it.

    First of all, CONGRATULATIONS! WOW!!! You are a true inspiration! emoticon

Blogging does help me. Of course, words are my thing (numbers? not so much). But I guess it helps me reflect on my journey and everything good, bad and ugly about weight loss.

And I enjoy reading blogs like yours! Keep it up! emoticon
