I don't weigh myself very often. Scales frustrate me, they're so up and down. I mean you can weigh two mornings in a row and there be five pounds difference, sigh. I have set a reminder on my phone for this year to weigh weekly and I'll see how it goes. If I find it too discouraging, I will try for every two weeks or once a month.
Of course, the side benefit of all this movement and improving my eating habits is that I have lost weight. So here's what I do know.
In February 2019 (almost two years ago); I weighed 308.2 pounds.
In January of 2020, I was down to 291.4 (some of my journey started in 2019 but that was before I was writing about it all of the time and implementing consistent routines).
This week when I weighed, I am down to 268.2; so about 40 pounds down from where I was two years ago and about 23 pounds from where I was a year ago.
But I want to look at this more in terms of how I am feeling. Physically I am feeling much better overall. Mentally, I am also doing much better. Not saying the last year hasn't been a struggle because it has (especially the last few months). But the changes I've worked to implement in my life have helped keep me from going over the edge and for that; I am so grateful.
I will not post about my weight very often, because that is not the goal here. The goal is wellness.
