I was encouraged to discover that while on vacation I still managed to lose five pounds. Or so. I fluctuate a lot depending on what time of the month it is, or what time of day I weigh myself, so it’s hard to remember. Also, I just realized it’s taken me almost a year to lose ten pounds. Or fifteen, depending on whether you count the five pound fluctuation several months ago. Or was that water weight? Anyhow, I guess I’m fine with slow and steady because I’m actually developing healthier eating habits that aren’t just part of a fad diet. I’ve discovered healthy things that I enjoy eating so that when I occasionally splurge (on alcohol, and maybe not so occasionally), the impact isn’t very damaging.
One fourth of my goal has been accomplished! Soooo…. if I continue at this rate I’ll make my goal weight in… three years? Not what I was hoping for, but as They say, slow and steady….
One thought on “Slow and Steady Wins the Race… right?”
I found that if you kick the scale in the women’s locker room at the gym, and then put it off the tile onto the carpet, it frequently records that you are at least 10-15 pounds lighter than you actually are. I find that during extra depressing weight times, this is what I need to lift my spirits. Hey, I mean if it actually says it on the scale, it must be true, right? (aside from that whole swift kick thing). You should try it, really.
