Happy Scale Day, everyone. It's another cool, gray day here in Central Oklahoma. I mention that because I think the clouds have changed the gravity field around my scale. I'm no longer stuck on that "zero"-ending number I mentioned last week -- but only because I am up two pounds this week. Only four pounds total off since we started this. I thought I was doing very well this week, eating more vegetables and fish and drinking more water. I know these are the "right" things to do. I really have been trying to summon all that I've learned about weight loss in the past 30 years.
But you know what? I am thinking that if I really "know" so much about proper weight loss, I might not be at the weight I am now, struggling to hold on to a four-pound weight loss over (how many?) weeks.
I'm struggling here. The things that have worked for me over the decades no longer seem to work. My refrigerator overflows with healthy food and I've made wise choices, for the most part.
True, I am lacking when it comes to physical activity, and I know that is a huge component. So I know what I have to do this week. Continue the healthy eating patterns, but step away from the computer and the television and MOVE this old body of mine.
If nothing else, I'll shock it into getting past that zero!
