So the only weight notes I have on SP right now are those I began to track last year. After no SP or WL efforts for a few months I returned a few weeks ago without any intention to track scale numbers. I decided that my first and foremost goal was to get myself moving and feeling better. I was a tad worried after my recent vacation but I've managed to reign myself in better and faster than I expected. I'm sure it's because of my habits of seeking support here. So with no numbers to focus on, I've become keenly aware of my physical and mental state. Both are improving. Today, I had to leave the house while laundry was still washing and I put on a pair of pants I hadn't used in a while. This particular pair was not part of the laundry because they had not been feeling too comfortable and were clean. Having no other choice, I put them on to find they were looser!! Not baggy and falling off necessarily but there was a noticeable difference to me. For a moment, I wished I had scale numbers to compare but considering the overwhelming overall pounds to lose goal, I'm sure I really made a good choice for myself. I'm going to give myself another couple of weeks of focusing on physical activity and nutrition consistency and then I'll dust off the scale. My pedometer gives me numbers to focus on for now and I'm beginning to feel a bit more "alive" than I had at the end of the school year. Those NSVs made me so happy today that not even my speeding ticket ruined my day. I took a route I take almost every day of the year through an area that is KNOWN for swarming cops but I was in such a good mood and enjoying my music so much that I was juuuuuuust enough over the limit for a stop. I think even the officer was surprised as to how not upset I was. When I write my check out to mail in the ticket, perhaps it will be a different reaction but for right now . Wooooo hoooo!
