Plodding Along

I was going to call this post “Slouching Toward a Healthy Weight,” but I just couldn’t make it work.  I do feel as if I’m slouching, or maybe plodding, toward the goal.  I’m grateful to be making progress, I really am.  but a pound a week is a long, slow slog.

The good news:  262 this morning.  If you’re keeping score, that’s 25 pounds in 24 weeks.  So I’m still ahead of schedule, and I’m finally breaking new ground.  Which I haven’t done since the middle of July.  It also means – and regular readers will know this before I get there – I’m still in the 260’s.  Argh.

I will, however, continue to be grateful.  and redouble my work in the days ahead.  The fact is I haven’t exactly been intentional about my eating, and life has intruded on my running this week.  Excuses are just excuses – I haven’t done the work I need to be doing, and I’m lucky I didn’t GAIN weight this week.

So let’s say a heartfelt goodbye to August and plan for a more serious September.

Those of you on the eastern seaboard (Carolinas and points north), I hope you’re reading this from a cozy hotel many miles inland if you’re reading Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Don’t push your luck with hurricanes, my friends.  This blog doesn’t have enough readers for any of you to play games with Miss Irene.
