My weight went up for unknown reasons last week, but I didn’t panic. I am proud of that. Normally I would. However it went back down again today. I down to 211. I’m hoping a pound or two come off before the weekend. I would like to be below 210. Also I am starting to see a small difference. Sadly I carry a mammoth amount of weight in my derriere. It is hard to find pants because my waist is not in proportion to my bottom. However, I bought a pair of PJ shorts several weeks ago without trying them on. When I tried them on at home, they were unbearably snug. Now they fit perfectly, I am in fact wearing them now!
I think if I can just mentally stick to my diet, and keeping track of food, even if I have days I fail, I can do this. The progress may be slow, but there is progress. I just have to imagine where I would be if I had done nothing. That is enough of a push.
I will swim today!
This was a good article from the NYT. I was looking through the blogs that liked this post. This came from one of them.
And another related article sent to me by a friend. You don’t need to run marathons improve your healthy. “Moderation as the Sweet Spot for Exercise”
