I don't post on this thread much because I don't step on the scale every 5 seconds of my life and I'm still in the trying to incorporate daily stretching. It's amazing how I can suck at one little thing, but there it is...and I offer that for anyone who would like to change their diet and fitness towards the positive. A few years ago I was cooking on all 4 burners. Now? Back to square one and trying to make myself get on the floor and stretch every day. How pathetic is that. I mean all it takes is actually putting one's behind...on. the. floor. Let's face it I totally stink right now but I'm sure I'll get there.Jersey Girl wrote: ↑Mon Jan 03, 2022 4:36 amOver the past year I stayed around 112-114. Of course it fluctuates. Last week I got on the scale at 117.8 and immediately said...uh,no. Screeeeeeeeeeeew this! I owe every single extra pound to Ghirardelli Snowmen and I am not exaggerating here. I also lost all the food anxiety that I had so that's another reason for the uptick. I finally started eating again though I still stick to small portions...the Snowmen did me in!
I did set intentions for the month of January. One was to start the sequence of exercise. There is hope! It's still January!
Anyway, here's the current deal.
So...that is what reality is for me. When you hear folks talking about 'those last ten pounds'...that's what I'm always dealing with if I see that I'm putting on unwanted weight. It's only about, I dunno, 5 pounds but still it matters to me. I haven't set a "goal weight". I really don't do that because weight fluctuates and it'd drive me totally nuts watching it flip flop around.
I'm basically just eating well and yes, the Snowmen are still looking at me but I am NOT making eye contact. They can wait for a blizzard when I'm snowed in. I guess these unwanted pounds were holiday pounds. They'll go away.
I know they will.
ETA: I just wanted to add that when I started this thread that I think I was 136 or 138 at the time. I don't know if I ever shared that.
