A Loss is a Loss is a Loss
Monday, October 17, 2016
I went to visit family for a few days. Ate too much, but at least I ran 6 miles one day while I was there. It wasn't too off the rails except it was all restaurant meals and high fat and high sodium and not at all helpful for weight loss. But! At the end of the week, a loss is a loss is a loss, even if it is only 0.4 pounds after a gain last week and so still technically 0.4 up from two weeks ago.
This is my progress so far. It is painfully slow, but at least that line is slightly sloping downward.
In the meantime, half my family has major new health challenges and they're dropping weight like crazy, which is FABULOUS for them but also makes me a little jealous. But then I think back 10+ years ago when I lost 50+ pounds and it was 'easy' for me back then, too. Something about just starting out and your body being shocked into submission. My family's genes are not exactly skinny friendly. All I can do is plod along, making teensy tiny pathetically small baby steps forward, and bracing for the occasional step backward.
Back home for almost a month. Time to concentrate on calorie counting, building real food back into the Nutrisystem plan, and consistent exercise.
