Every day for the last week, I slap myself on the head and think ‘Again?! I forgot to weigh and measure again?” So, here it is, December 8ht….
Weight: 150 Waist 35
Little shifts up and down….not a problem but I seem to have lost focus. Yes, lots of other things going on but health is very important too. Focus, focus, focus!
It’s weigh in day and I didn’t step on a scale.
Over the past 16 months (has it really been that long?!?) I have enjoyed this project and learned much from it. About my relationship with food, what size matters to me and how I would like to be seen in the world. More importantly, how I would like to BE in the world.
Many changes over this time period have shed some light and allowed me to take a few more steps toward being healthier and not just a smaller size.
But I found out this week that a few of the medications I currently need serve up a 1-2 punch of making a body gain weight and resisting efforts to lose it. So – I’ve decided for the next few months to take a break and enjoy the fact that I am now well enough to work with my doctors to cut down or stop taking those drugs altogether. And when I am clear of those medications I will try again.
Because I am not finished yet.
Weight 149 Waist 35
Not the best diet in the last two weeks due to a very busy and hectic schedule. On the other hand, I’m also not eating a lot of junk either. Mostly ham & cheese sandwiches and getting very tired of those…..
weight 173.0 – down 1.0 waist 34.0 – no change
Yeah, I’m a little early since this time tomorrow I’ll be on a plane to San Diego!!!!! Finally get some actually face to face time with Kathy. It’s so long over due.
That makes me feel better than anything a scale can tell me.
Weight 150 lbs up 2 lbs Waist 34 down .5 inches
So I completely forgot to weigh and measure myself yesterday then figured it was completely unfair to have to do that the morning after Halloween!
I’m gaining back a bit of my stress weight loss. On the other hand, now I understand why my pants are seriously falling off my waist. I’ve had to go to the next hole in my belt. OK, so now I’ve had a weight loss without effort due to stress. Now to figure out how to keep it off. I am happy with the way I look and the way my cloths fit and generally I am happy all over!
weight 174.0 - up 1.0 waist 34.0 down 1.0
Can I just say that a progress report directly after a vacation and Halloween is just painful? I guess I can. Weight damage is manageable. Waist is a huge surprise.
I’ve read many articles, posts etc. that say to throw the scale away and to go by how you feel and how clothes fit. I do notice that pants I often wear are now falling down a bit. Is that me or did the pants stretch in the wash? Am I getting anywhere here? Am I just kidding myself? I would so love to never see 7 as the second number again.
ugh. try again.

As a present to myself, I’d like to be at 165 or less by Christmas. That’s roughly 10 weeks. Certainly looks achievable on paper. Let’s see if I can make that scale budge.
I remember once years ago stepping on the scale and seeing the number 154 flash up at me. I felt horrible. That’s up 35 lbs from high school and 25 pounds from college. Now it’s my goal weight . Funny how things change.
Try again. :)
