A Humble Monday Morning

Monday, January 28, 2013

This morning was my first weigh-in in a long time.

I was expecting it to be a lot less, though knowing it could be a lot more. I weighed in above my predicted worst case, 200 lbs, at 202.4 lbs. I went back and looked at my old logs. Time flies. Until I saw the dates I hadn't realized how long it has been since I was at my low nor how many years it has been that I have been floundering with aborted restarts.

I prepared for this event a bit, so I am okay. There are positive things to tell myself.

Right now, I feel like I got the wind knocked out of me.

I know that will pass, but right now that is where I am at

I got my first sinker today, so my tension has eased. I agree with you about the baseline. Though one day is not enough, if I get similar results this week I will know that my old calorie limit, the lowest I can live with, will work for losing a pound a week, at least while I am at a higher weight. That is something I have been worried about.

I really think people have been sold a crock of ___ with "scale hate".

I remember from my first go around on the Hacker's Diet that getting on the scale every day freed me from that fear.

    Well, at least you've got a baseline to work with, now.

This is one reason I weigh every morning. I'd rather know what's going on than drive myself nuts, speculating. I suppose it's the opposite of what goes around here as "scale hate."

And that trend line keeps me sane through the inevitable fluctuations.
