When I Don't Have Much to Say Should I Blog Anyway??

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Delighted that I had 2 delicious meals with my friend yesterday and still weighed 127.8 this morning! So I'm down several pounds over the last couple months.

It has been over a year since I was truly trying to maintain, that is, not lose or gain. There were months I didn't actively try to lose, especially when my focus was on building endurance to run the half marathon. But now I'm just 1.8 pounds til I'm back to my happy weight again. I'm thinking, though, I should probably lose two more just to have a cushion. Might take me 4-8 weeks, but probably would be worth it. Losing it slowly helps me avoid binging and helps me get into place the behaviors I need to maintain. We'll see how it goes. I'm not 100% certain that 126 really is a maintainable weight for me. (Judith Beck PhD of Beck Diet Solution writes about achievable vs. maintainable weight.) I know it is achievable because I did it in 2011. I won't know if is is maintainable or not unless I try.

I walked for a half hour early this morning and then ran and walked for 1.5 hours this morning at the gym. I accidentally hit the stop button on the treadmill twice and lost my data, so don't know exactly how far I went. I am not going to call myself a klutz, but if someone else did, I wouldn't dispute it -- and I wouldn't feel bad, either. I could not stand being a fat klutz, but being a slender klutz is okay with me. Go figure. I did some good strength training and tried a new machine, too. Okay. How about a strong slender klutz??

Enough for now. Perhaps I should wait to write again when I have something more significant to say! (Not promising.)

    Seems to me you had a lot to say! Blogging is about telling how your day is going, keeping your friends updated with your little trials and tribulations -all a part of the wonderful support and accountability of Sparkpeople! We enjoy following your journey as its very inspirational! Here is to maintaining that middle 2! You can do it!
I am afraid I am Queen of the Klutzes, you have nothing on me. If I were to write about all the little incidents that make up my day, well, everyone would begin to wonder if I lived with a doppelganger playing mean tricks on me :P
Spark On!

    I rather be a thin klutz myself. I have bruises on my arms and legs. I got some of them moving furniture Sunday. I got more yesterday when carrying groceries in the cold. I carried some of the bags on my arm since my gloves were to think for me to grasp the bags in my hand. A huge brown, gray mark appeared on my arm about five to seven hours later. I'm going to need to make sure I take an empty backpack with me if I go shopping in the cold again. My boyfriend seeing the bruise tells me not to go shopping when it's less than 20 degrees out. I see his point. I nearly passed out at the bus depot after walking there from the store.

    As one klutz to another, keep writing. Daily life is what it's all about.

    Our goal weight is not always the best weight for us to be at, and sometimes not maintainable. You certainly had a message here for all us - keep blogging!!!! Sometimes our thoughts are enough to motivate just one person to re-evaluate their goals and help them succeed!

Have a great day!!! Love the background pic!!!

    For someone who didn't have anything to say, I thought you were quite eloquent. Besides you let others know they are not alone with their antics.

    Just yesterday you received an acknowledgement for your workout, so I won't call you a klutz.
Glad you sticking with a middle 2.

    Too hilarious: a strong slender klutz! I'm signing up with you for that! As for lowest sustainable weight . . . I've accepted that middle 3 is not sustainable (although briefly achieved!). It was tough . . . but there it is. The middle four low end is good. Lean enough to ward off dementia, I'm thinking!

    I think you should blog when you want to. The blog doesn't have to be important to anyone but one. Keep Blogging and Sparking, Marsha.
