Hermiones Mom's Journal, 20 September 2017

So I know I swore I wouldn't weigh myself until the end of the month, but I couldn't stand it any longer. I really needed to know how badly the summer had sent me off course. I was astounded to weigh in at 151 even -- 2/10s less than in July. It's such a confidence builder that I am firm enough in my WOE that diversions for vacation don't necessarily mean I will balloon up again. I think I have a done a good job of sticking to plan when I wasn't on plan -- if that makes any sense. In other words: If we went out for a family party and I went off plan, the next morning I was back on, even if there was another family event two days later. So it's nothing to brag about -- after all, I've not lost any significant amount of weight in many weeks. But on the other hand, I haven't gained either. And honestly, this is the longest I have stayed below an obese weight in years. So I'm pleased, and I feel as though I can stay steady, and maybe begin to shed a few more pounds.
151.0 lb Lost so far: 83.0 lb.    Still to go: 9.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Thanks everyone. It never occurred to me how thrilled I would be just to stay steady! -- so I'm glad to know my FS community also recognizes it as an accomplishment. Honestly -- I don't think I could have done this without FS.
