I meant to do this yesterday, but eh.
I decided to bite the bullet and start weighing in again.
I suppose I was a bit stubborn, (me? Ha!), but I knew that with in-laws here, I wouldn't be able to eat normally. I felt stressed, and I got nearly daily, gee, we've been walking, have you weighed yourself? Add to that eating out nearly 2 to 4 times a week, and I was not being particularly warm and fuzzy.
I just ignored it, tried my very level best not to over eat, walked, and tried to be a good kid. (Ok, I sucked down my birthday cake like a Hoover, but otherwise, I was pretty good.)
Once in-laws left, I felt sorry for Rudee, who can't go out on the road, (He has NO CLUE that vehicles will hurt him, and I figure, we have a big pasture, why go on the road?), so just to see if I could do it, I kept up with the walking, but I tried for 7 days a week. Could I do it?
It has been a bit over two months I have been walking, and I have added "meditation" at the end of my walk. I don't know if that is the right term or not, I have a chair, and I might pray. I might plan the day. I might just go into mental dial tone. Rudee gets some ear scratch time. Tuxedo will jump onto my lap, and usually will sit and be petted. I feel better, and am now looking forward to 'earning' my time with my walking.
But, thought I, a few days ago, I really haven't checked. Am I gaining, losing, what? Ooooh, don't like to think about it, what if I am more than before... Then while sitting and meditating, I realized, ok, if I don't know, how can I know if I am getting better or worse? Suck it up and weigh in. If there's a gain, you work on losing again. If there's a loss, it's... Well, I was going to say gravy... It's golden? Bleepin' golden, even?
So with heavy trepidation, I got up on Wednesday, and stepped on the scale.
As you can see to the right, the last time I weighed myself was April, at 242.2
The scale said 242.
I wish I was further along, but ya know, I think I will take it, and then work on downward harder. I know some things to work on, and I know Rudee is a VERY enthusiastic workout partner, so onward to lower lard!
