Friday Weigh In 11-13-2015

Yikes – has it really been nearly a month since I made a real post?  Radio silence much?  <sheesh>

A week of vacation and a week of business travel completely derailed progress.  I’ve run not-much since I posted last, and I’ve struggled with food.  BUT – I’m back on the wagon for the last few days, and my run this morning went very well.  Felt a little like old times there for a bit in the middle.

Weight:  305.2 lbs

Weekly Gain/Loss:  +0.6 lbs

Total Gain/Loss:  (-17.8) lbs

So, since I weighed in last on the week before vacation (Captiva Island, by the way.  Just do it.  Seriously – make that happen.) I’ve gained 3.6 pounds, or a bit over 1%.  That’s obviously a rate that would make huge very quickly – but it also isn’t as bad as it could have been.  The trick, as always, is not to see this journey as an all-or-nothing affair.  I’m still down about 18 pounds since June, which is great.  And I can get RIGHT back on that wagon and head right back down.

There was a time in my life where, right now, I might throw my hands up and quit.  I lost momentum, I gained some weight, and getting out the door and making good food choices has become challenging again.  Screw it – lets go get a burger and a milkshake.  But that would be silly.  Its like saying these 18 pounds don’t count.  And they do – they count.

So – back on the wagon.  I’ve got a few posts lined up, too – got to make the vacation post, of course, and then talk about a few other things going on.  Radio silence – over.

Onward.
