You know, I'm always telling people not to focus just on the scale. Usually, I'm pointing out how other things, like how much more you can lift, or if it's easier to walk up the stairs, can give you a positive boost.
But I haven't been practicing what I preach. It's been all scale, all the time, and that has allowed me to slip.
I haven't been regularly taking my measurements.
Yesterday, I was getting ready for a business trip and my suits were tight. It didn't make sense to me. My weight has been fairly stable.
So this morning, I dug out my old measurement records and a tape measure...
Since the last time I recorded my measurements in the book, a year ago, I'm up 9 inches! 7 pounds, AND 9 INCHES!
I've been delusional about my weight. Or at least about my body composition.
And the Lord is holding up a giant
sign and a mirror.
I've got to do better.
I'm ashamed, and I've got to do better.
I already reflected on this on my other blog, so I think I'll stop here for now. I've got a plan to get back on track. It's here: fortyoneproject.wordpres
