Weigh-In For Week 54

Up and down and up and down and up…

Last week I managed to drop a pound and this week most of it has returned. I always question whether I should worry more, given that I am feeling fine about the fact that I am up. I wonder if it is complacency and the return of accepting bad habits. Yet, at the same time, I applaud myself for not losing my mind over making mistakes and for having the confidence to know that I can get back at it without too much self-admonishment. I guess it’s a pretty fine balance. So far, I think I am doing a good job of staying on the tightrope.


  1. Well, my take on worryingis that worrying is destructive and leads to losing ones mind. I wouldn't sweat a one pound gain. Sure, it is not what you want, but you said it well, you are doing a goodjob staying on that tightrope, keep at it and the scale will go down again soon eough.

  2. It seems as though I've spent the summer in a slow backslide. It's so easy to lose your way on this path. We know too much now to ever go back to the old ways though...

  3. I think you're doing great, and you're such an inspiration to me. Congratulations on your success! :)

  4. Thank you Patrick and Stephanie!

    And to you, Mr. Sh*t, I must say that your last couple of comments really do have me uncovering my more introspective side. I think that your special brand of humour means that when you post seriously that people listen. Thanks, Jack.
