Baxie's Journal, 29 January 2013

Ok, here's my story, and I'm stickin' to it, as they say...It's a combination of things, actually...the season changing, the holidays...I kinda lost my "mojo" looking around at others' journals, it appears I haven't been alone, lol...For the most part, I didn't just totally go off the deep end, although there were a few times during the holidays when...well, we all know the end of THAT sentence, I'm sure!

Anyway...I also got myself a new scale; one of those newfangled digital jobbies. Now, I knew my old scale was less than accurate, but it was easy to tell myself I weighed 135 pounds, and it was obvious I had lost a lot of weight...those size 8 jeans really were very comfortable :-) Nevertheless, the new scales told a different story...about 5 pounds worth of different story. Ok, (sigh)fine. But then! I proceeded to keep gaining until about 2 weeks ago when I reached a (recent) all-time high of 148.something (I think I blocked out the "something"). That's when I finally decided to put on the breaks. I reminded myself that I refuse to go back to almost 170 pounds! So, in the last two weeks, I've dropped about 5 pounds. It has been rather difficult to get back in the swing of eating properly, and I haven't started walking again,'s too chilly for me, and I'm a wimp in that dept. :( but I do feel the urge to do it, at least, so I know as soon as it warms up a bit, I'll be back out there...

Anyway, I'm back, all probably know I've never been a big journaler...I just don't feel the need for it, much, and don't like repeating myself day after day, lol. But I will be checking in, nonetheless, because the community of support and common struggle among us is very, very helpful! Thanks to everyone who didn't un-buddy me while I was gone...let's get our hind ends in gear, now, and reach some new (or even old) goals, ok? We can do this!
143.6 lb Lost so far: 8.4 lb.    Still to go: 8.6 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Hey Baxie - thanks for stopping by my journal and WELCOME BACK! You know, I did that same thing - denial - in the past. I'd NEVER weigh because I didn't want it to be 'about a number' and I just judged by 'how my jeans fit.' YET - I didn't stop when the 2's were too tight, then the 4's then the 14's. I think by then the freight train had too much steam. So GOOD for YOU for stopping before you got back to 170! And good for you 5lbs already! Welcome back and keep it going ~ you'll get to goal - I know you will!

Thanks, Bella...and yeah to the jeans scenario...but I got rid of my 12's, so I'd have to get new ones, and that just ain't happenin'.....10 is as high as I'm ever going to be willing to go.

Glad you are back! You are definitely not alone in the post holiday repentance front. It's empowering to know that you have done this before and so you know you can do it again.

Yippee! I missed you and thought I saw you commenting the other day on someone's journal. You have 8 pounds to lose - phhttt - easy for you! Just need to refocus a bit and with warmer weather coming, you will be sprining around town!

I missed you too - it's great to have you back. Your graph will start dropping really quickly now, for sure.
