Weigh-in Wednesday: Week 43

Weigh daily.
Weigh daily.

Somehow I lost a half pound this week.

Despite eating out almost every day and some days eating out all three meals I managed to keep from blowing my weight loss plan.

The problem this week: Too much to do and too little time. This led to poor habits in both eating and exercising.

This explains how I gained so much weight over the years. Too much to do; too little time for too many years resulted in two to three extra pounds each year for about 30 years or about 60 extra pounds. I’m just lucky I was slender in my youth.

Now I start every day by stepping on the scale. Two or three pounds over the course of a year doesn’t sound like a big deal, but when that pattern repeats year after year, it’s a big problem.

I know my weight will fluctuate from one day to the next, but I also know the top limit of what’s acceptable. The ignorance is bliss model of old is no more. By weighing in every day, I’m able to hold myself accountable.

Four more to go!
