Saturday weigh-in. I’ve been in a holding pattern for the past few weeks, but that’s okay. I haven’t been gaining, and in my experience, when I maintain weight, my body’s readjusting and I’m losing inches. We’ll see next week since that’s when I’m supposed to measure again. Anyway, this week I dropped 4 pounds, for a total of 96.2. I’m within spitting distance of the 100 pound mark, and I’m really excited. I wanted to lose 100 pounds by the time the RWA conference came around this year, and it looks like I just might make it. Too bad I can’t actually go to the conference this year, especially since it’s just down the road apiece in Orlando.
Ah, well, new goal: 200 down by Conference 2011 🙂 That’s in NYC, I think, and my gut instinct is that I probably won’t make that one either. But I’m trying to get rid of the negative thinking and setting my goals high.
The important thing is that I’m healthier than I’ve been in a long time, and even my knees are reaping the benefit. I can actually kneel now, and I haven’t been able to do that in … years! Since I turfed it hard!!! while walking during my lunch hour back when I was working at the court. That happened a while before I left that job, and I left in … what? 1994? 1995? Must have been 1995 or ’96, so a good 15 years since I’ve been able to kneel for any reason without a great deal of pain for days afterward. But I can kneel now! Admittedly, it’s sometimes a little less comfortable than others, but I can do it and I’m grateful.
Onward and Downward!
