First blog, one month in!

Monday, January 28, 2013

I've never blogged before and I'm not sure I can do it as frequently as I should. I'm giving it a try, though, because my enthusiasm is seriously waning and I'm not giving in this time. I'm down to 241 from my all-time high of 252 so that's certainly a start! I broke down and bought a battery for the digital scale in my bathroom (wasn't gonna do it, wasn't gonna do it!) because my sister flaked out of our weekly weigh-in at the Y (it's her fault! ;P) and I didn't want to go alone just to weigh myself. Now that I having a working scale, my years-old obsession with weighing myself constantly is back in full swing. Could there be a positive side to weighing myself this much? I've read a few theories on the benefits of DAILY weigh-ins but what I'm talking about is more like five times a day, after I take hot showers or go pee, so... probably not. I can say since I've been weighing so often, I've noticed my weight isn't fluctuating by more than a pound like it used to. Sometimes it would change as much as five pounds in a non-PMS week! Well, I'm going to go cruise the SparkPeople pages for a little motivation to get my second month started on track and wish me luck for my Friday weigh-in (hope to leave 240s behind FOREVAH!), WOOT! emoticon

    BLogging has been instrumental for keeping me accountable. I post about things I find motivating, my challenges, and such; as I've commented on others' blogs and built up followers, now they help give me advice and keep me motivated when my forward momentum is waning!

    Keep it up. Think of it like a public journal! Do it for yourself, but invite others to see, too!
