There it is. My first weigh in since breaking my plateau before vacation. In a way I feel like I’m back where I started, but I know that’s not true. I’ve just had a crazy, busy, fun, few weeks that resulted in about 5 pounds.
Yup, that’s 5.
And I’m ok with it.
I have no regrets. I wouldn’t take back the week of beach food or the samples at BlogHer, the Thai I ate with Jen, or the extra slices of bacon I stole from the conference breakfasts. Dude… WHY is hotel bacon SO good?!
I had fun gaining those 5 lbs, as silly as that sounds, but now it’s time for me to be a little more conscious about my food choices. I’ve been feeling, well, blah. I’m tired and bloated. I don’t like it.
When I eat better I feel better. The equation is so simple. It all comes down to… I like how it feels.
Now, you’d think the simple equation and the fact I do like how it feels would be enough, but it’s not. I have some weird defect that makes me need (or maybe it’s just a strong want) some extra accountability. I think I’ve gotten so comfortable sharing my weight online, it’s not as motivating to me as it once was. It’s time to change. ;)
So I thought I’d open up Weigh In Wednesdays. I’ll commit to weighing in weekly until I hit my goal if you do. Well, that’s not true I’m committing with our without you, but it would be more fun with you!
My plan is to post my weigh in first thing Wednesday morning so the post will be ready for you to comment with you weights throughout the day. Don’t feel any pressure to participate, I know weighing in weekly isn’t for everyone but I thought I’d extend an invitation to those that may benefit.
