Very Slowly, but Steadily
Saturday, September 07, 2013
I lost 4/10 of a pound in the last week and I am going to call that alright. I have not lost a great deal since starting. *But* I am consistently losing, and I haven't missed a day in tracking, and I am blogging and interacting.
I looked back over time, when I have variably checked in with SP since October 2009. I weighed 270 then. I got down to 252 and then stopped. Over the next two years I gained 36 lbs, climbing up to 288 -- my highest. That was in April 2012. So, finally, when I started *this* time, almost 5 months ago, I weighed 280. Today, I weigh 262.4.
I have learned to count more than numbers. This is for the long haul. I am getting divorced and I am on an emotional roller coaster. I have a new job. I am a student in a degree program. And I have very little contact with my family or origin. I feel alone in my real life. But I am so very happy that I am tracking and losing slowly. Previously, I would be "out there" not taking care of myself.
