Down weight, 11/8/15
Sunday, November 08, 2015
I forgot to weigh myself in the morning yesterday so I weighed myself midday with no change in weight. Then I got busy (and did a factory restart on my phone so no Spark for a day) and forgot to put in the weight. So I weighed myself this morning just to check.
190.3 lbs. I stepped on the scale a few more times to be sure. Then I remembered I usually weigh myself in my jammy pants (I was pantsless) and that in the winter I would definitely be wearing jammy pants every morning. I guessed my 3lbs came from the pants, that there really had been no change (even though I have weighed myself stark naked and not been near 190.) The pants brought it to 191.8.
I haven't lost weight in a long time. I have changed my exercise and tracked my calories. I wobble as much as 3lbs in any direction and I had thought the 195 measurement was bloat until it wouldn't go away. And then it became 198. And then I knew I was either going to fall back into the 200s during a time in my life when I was active and relatively healthy, or I was going to make a change.
I always undermine my own success. Just now I thought, "Well, let's count that as 5lbs down." But no. It is 8lbs down. I never wanted to admit that I had gotten from 165 all the way back to 198 and I thought that 3lb lie could lessen the blow of all my weight gain. But now that I am trying to make a difference I need to know where I started from.
And take credit for the successes I have made. Boom, y'all.
