So finally starting to feel unbloated and the weight is back to 173. Not ideal, but not the scary place that made me literally jump off the scale before it settled on a weight either. This I can work with. I just need to be dedicated to it. There are people who started this journey after I did and weighing more than I did. Those people now weigh less than me. That is because they have been more dedicated to making it happen. I think part of the reason it is so hard for me is because I am not super overweight. Also, my body really likes being at this weight. I've read on other blogs that this is called a setpoint, so I guess I need to reset my setpoint. I need to get down to the 150s and stay there long enough that my body is okay with being that weight. I'm now over a year into this journey and I'm pretty much where I started. When I started working out, I weighed about 175. When I was first building muscle, I initially gained 10 pounds, so I have 185 as my high point on my tracker. To have only lost that initial strength training weight and nothing more is kind of sad. I've got to step it up a notch.
