Good morning. As I am writing it is January 2. The last time I posted I was fighting an ear infection, and I was going to give up on a mileage goal I’d set for Christmas. That was November 10. Shortly thereafter, around the 20th, I set a goal for myself to weigh the same on January 1 as I did on November 20th. I never published a post here, but talked about it with family and friends. The idea was to “maintain” in December.
On November 20th I weighed in at 213.4 pounds. If I’d been successful in my maintenance, that would be my weight today. Sadly, today I weigh 225.0
I fell off the wagon in December, and the back wheels ran me over. Then the wagon backed over me again a couple of times. This morning I am not happy with myself.
Oh, and to make matters more interesting, I am pretty sure I am fighting an ear infection again.
Let me just say this before I go on. I had a great holiday season. Thanksgiving and Christmas were special times with family and friends. I indulged along the way, and told myself that I would be ok, because I have good habits. But, it turns out, I slipped back to some OLD habits that have gotten me off my long term track.
Today I start anew. Weight Watchers has changed while I wasn’t tracking, and in a few minutes I’ll be heading there to make updates and start to learn the new points system. I’ve seen mixed reviews, so we will see how that goes.
In a few minutes I will also update my tracking page with the ugly news.
