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.
