I shouldn't have, but...

Monday, August 22, 2011

Ah, me, I have reinforced the power of the scale again. I wasn't going to weigh myself in August. Then I got taken to the emergency room with sudden vertigo two weeks ago Friday and it's taken until just the last few days to feel mostly normal. My eating routine has been off and I wasn't trying much to regulate it. Some days were ordered as usual and some weren;t but not all the disorder was crazy. Some days were pretty heavy on the sweets. I went to a Pilates class today and wore a pair of capri sweatpants I hadn't had on in awhile. I thought they felt tight. I resisted the urge to weigh myself most of the day, but finally gave in. And I weigh a few pounds less than I thought I would. Since I've had sweets this weekend, I think I'm retaining water. So the upshot is that I think I have maintained my weight through this, which is good, in my opinion. I'm not at goal weight, but I'm glad to know my body isn't having a hard time staying at this weight. I think things can only get better with a return to my sane weekdays and the addition of some moderate exercise, as I was just getting into again when my world went topsy turvy. And I'll just have to wait until Sept. 1 to find out if I'm right. emoticon

    great attitude, keep on keeping on the path of sanity

    It is sweet and for me anyways, the only sugar I want in my life today. My body is not happy when I am not kind to it, today is about kindness not only to my body, but my mind. I see from your blogs, you get that. Mind body and soul, kindness.

    Not random kindness, but consistent kindness,

    Sweets or carbs do add water to your body, but also if you're not careful they can add that word we dread; fat. I think we all know without weighing what the scale is doing, by what we are doing with our food and exercise. The scale - or the clothes - just tell us what we basically know if we are paying attention.

    I know you can get to where you want to get. And, you will.

    Remember to take it one day at a time and o=not to rehash the past. Today is the only thing that counts.
