RoundIsAShape's Journal, 20 February 2013

Last week was a good week, even if my scale didn't think so.

I mentioned the victories on the plane trip already. (Ability to fold down the tray all the way and not needing a seat belt extender this time.)

I also spent quite a bit of time outdoors. After classes each day I set off around the city hunting down geocaches. I found 13 of them and tried to find another four that eluded me. I also got a couple dozen nice photos.

While doing this I saw several parts of the city that most people who live there likely haven't even seen. I also walked almost 10 miles during the week. For me that is a lot. I don't think I could have done that three months ago... not without being really sore or having knee pain for sure.

It's a hilly area and I was hauling over 325 pounds up and down those hills. According to the app on my cell phone, all that walking burned nearly 10,000 calories.

I didn't turn on the TV in my room even once.

For most of my breakfasts and a few other meals I managed to keep what I ate pretty well within my diet plan. For some other meals I kept portion sizes down even though what I was eating was a bit over the top.

But I also indulged a bit. I had a full "southern meal" with the sides. I had a delicious stuffed shrimp dinner. I drank a few beers a bloody mary and a margarita during the trip.

I gained 7 pounds but I don't care all that much. Of course I know it is going in the wrong direction. But it was still a very good week. I'm confident that much of that weight is water weight. I don't know if I'll lose it all this week but I'm confident that the boost to my metabolism and returning to a proper diet will let me shed them by the end of the month.

More importantly I feel good about the week. The positives far outweigh the negative as far as I'm concerned. It hasn't shaken my confidence that I'll be successful this time with my weight loss. If anything, after the successes of the week I feel even more confident.

Sometimes the scale doesn't tell the whole story.
