I weighed in today . . .


Monday, January 07, 2013

. . . and I am a half kilo over the arbitrary range I set for myself as being "at goal".
This is also 2.5 kilos above the weight I was at the beginning of December. (but at a BMI of 20.5, it is still a good weight for me)

I knew I had gained weight. My eating was not what it should be over the break (see previous blog).

In some ways, the number means absolutely nothing. I am not sure that I gained anything from jumping on the scale. I just wanted a benchmark I suppose.

My feelings are still the same.

What I weigh is not important - what is important is how I feel. If I am respecting my feelings - emotions, feelings of hunger, thirst, responding to what my body needs etc etc then my body will find its balance point. It might be a weight above my original 'maintenance goal' - but it wont be back where I started from . . . because at that weight I was out of touch with what I needed, I was depressed and sedentary.

My body is talking to me - I just have to improve my listening skills.

    Good thinking, you are right, we need to hone our skills more to listening to our bodies.
