Back to where I was 4 years ago

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I have long been logging my weekly weights and tracking things on WW. This morning I looked back at my logged weights for the last 4 years. Over that time, the absolute lowest number I ever achieved was 119 in January 2005. However, it was after I had been horribly ill with the flu and hadn't been able to keep any food in myself for days. Not the way to do it!

I like to look back at my milestone weights and think of myself as returning to those days. The most significant of those is my wedding weight. I weighed 125 on my wedding day, so sayeth the chart. That's the number I'd like to see again on October 18. From there, I'm reaching for that post-flu weight, I guess. hahaha

I try to remember what was the lowest weight I have ever been able to easily maintain as an adult. Of course, at what point are we first truly adults? 18? If so, I was 106. 21? Between 21 and 23, I was pretty steadily around 115. It is for that reason that I think 118 is reachable and should be reasonable to maintain if I choose to. But enough obssessing about numbers since I'm still 10 pounds away from thinking about it. After all, it's been almost 5 years since I've been in that realm, anyway, so it's a bit of a stretch to believe I need to concern myself with my finish line at this point.

Back from Neverneverland and trying to focus on today...
I'm going to do my 30 Day Shred as soon as I set the laptop down.
Then a trip to the grocery store. (Fresh veggies - woo hoo!)
Then lunch.
Then review some documents for my social club.
Then a swim in my neighbor's pool.
Then housework.
Then make dinner.
Then watch a movie on the couch with my hubby.
Then bed.

That's the plan. I figured out all of my meals and snacks for the day. I have a clear map of what I will do today. Today is all I can worry about. I'll just get one more day under control and then tomorrow I'll worry about tomorrow. And occasionally, I'll think about what I'll look like when I'm 34-28-36! emoticon
