Seems like punishment to weigh myself on a day known for pranks and practical jokes, but I established my own weigh-in calendar, and weighing myself on the first of every month, including April 1st, is part of the deal. And this is no joke: I’m up two pounds.
I’ve been pretty good lately about not getting bummed at weight gains. I have a lot to be proud of, and I’ve accomplished so much, but this one stung a little bit, if only because Read the rest of this entry »

It’s already March? This year is flying by. Time to update the ol’ weight loss chart!

It’s a mixed bag of good and could-be-better news, but the overall headline is: Read the rest of this entry »

I do a monthly weigh-in, and I took a deep breath before stepping on the scale the other day. I reminded myself of what I wrote last week (about rethinking maintenance), including that while the number on the scale is an indicator of how things are going, it’s just one of many.
The big picture is that I’ve done – and continue to do – incredible things, so I’m gonna try to not equate a smaller number with success, or a larger number with failure. Nor will I make any judgments regarding self-worth, positive or negative, after reading the scale.
And with that reminder coursing through my veins, I stepped on the scale. Read the rest of this entry »

My weigh-in is about a week late, thanks to being in Michigan when June turned to July. Better late than never! Let’s go to the chart, shall we?
Woohoo! I lost three of the four pounds I gained in May! Read the rest of this entry »
