The boomarang effect that is weight loss

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

In yesterdays post I was projecting frustration and upon waking this morning I stepped on the scale and poof just like that I am back down to Saturdays weight. It is truly amazing how the scale can dictate a persons outlook on how things are progressing and even though I have been doing this since 2008 and should know the ups and downs. I should be thanking my Wife for the scale this morning as we had an um.. problem arise yesterday that was pretty stressful and she asked like she does every day "Whats for dinner Hon?" my reply? "Pizza, what do you want on it" and though I was half kidding if she had said "peppers, onions, mushrooms and sausage" I probably would have been on the phone. Wify said, "Make a salad, or how about Tuna on a wrap? I can make you an egg white omelet if you want" I did opt for the omelet and this morning my weight reflected that having support is a huge part of success for many people me included.

Last night I decided to put some knobby tires on my K2 so that I can start taking it on my "easy loop" route to start getting my legs back so that come spring I am ready for the trail. Of course the fact that I made this decision angered the weather gods and there is six plus inches of snow outside right now but they will not stop me. The fact that it snowed last night meant that Zeusmeatball got to have an hour and forty five minutes worth of cardio this morning shoveling my driveway and clearing my truck so that Wify could get to work this morning, so take that weather gods! I am not opposed to riding with snow on the ground and since I am doing my shorter loop it won't be a big deal anyways so looking forward to some rides in the net couple weeks.

Over all I am feeling decent about this restart with the weight loss/health thang and I keep coming back to sensible eating, some exercise and a positive outlook as what works. I am looking forward to fitting back into the whole wardrobe that is hanging in my closet right now unused, I am looking forward to this fall and the leaves on the trail as I wind off 25 miles on a Sunday morning and I am looking forward to getting my juju back so that I am doing what I need and want to do on a daily again with my physical self.

Hanging in there with some rough patches but its all smoothing out, discipline, determination and some hard work will pay off for me as long as I do my part.

That's all I got for today.

    I'm with you, I STILL let the scale dictate my mood. You'd think we'd learn eventually... Glad you have such great support!

    Seeing what your wife did for you made me teary eyed(that's not hard for this sensitive pregnant Momma, but it still touched me). that is a HUGE help in this journey~yes, you could do it alone, but having back up from the most important person in your life is a life saver.

I also love being outside in the Fall weather.. the cool crisp air and the autumn colors. I have a loop that I run 3 times a week (weather permitting... or I have to use the "dreadmill :o() and seeing the seasons in action is one of the highlights. Great job on your eating yesterday. Having a list of "go to" quick, easy peasy meals is one of the tickets to success.

    Scales can be such infernal things! Still wrapping my brain around how to manage the scale. I think once a week is all I can do and keep my!

Cool to the K2 news! :-)
