Sometimes, I weigh myself, and if I've gained a pound or so I don't log it here, because I think "Oh, I'll just lose it next week." Sometimes it happens, more often lately it's just wishful thinking.

But I finally realized that hey, no, I'm sorta stuck at my current weight (which is more than where I want to be) so I might as well plug it into spark people so at least I can be honest with myself.

218 today. Even, not 218-point-something. Not a big deal, but more than I was in January (my low was 206-point-something) and more than my stated goal of 200 by the end of the last calendar year. I realize there are people that only have 20 or 30 pounds that they wish to lose, and they might think 18 pounds is a lot, but I started around 290 almost two years ago so 18 doesn't seem like a lot.

(does it bug you that I randomly switch between using numeric and alpha descriptions of my numbers? LOL)

So, yeah, I'm heavier than I want to be, but over the winter I got a little lazy and skipped some runs and some strength training and ate a little birthday cake and maybe some pizza or beer once in a while. And I love to eat, so that's OK, I just gotta manage my portions and timing of these things and start getting back to my salads / veggie dishes. Already I've run more in the last month than I did in about three months prior, so that's a plus. I'll turn my positive (weight gain) into a different positive (losing it again and enjoying that it is gone) soon enough.

If you're still out there reading and commenting, thank you so much for the support; I don't say that enough. I wouldn't be here without y'all.

    Way to stay positive! I think alot of people maybe have a tougher time in the winter than in the spring/summer time. I know I sure do, I've been stale-mated since January. Good job getting back to your running! We can do it!!
