Y’all, look at the slope of this line:
I mean, isn’t it pretty?
There’s something about seeing your progress on a graph that is fulfilling. Even if I probably couldn’t figure out how to graph this without the use of a computer.
If I entered the rest of my weights into the program, that would probably look like the Rockies or the Andes or some other mountain range. So, for what it’s worth, I like seeing that straight, downward-angled line in that graph representing the past six weeks of my weight loss life.
I weighed this morning and the scale said:
No gain and no loss in the past two weeks. I’m happy with that, honestly. Because I’ve eaten like a pig at the slop trough. I’ve stuffed myself with wine and chocolate and Moe’s and spinach quesadillas and yummy deliciousness.
But my pants still fit.
In fact, my work trousers are a little loose. A comfy loose. But loose.
And I like it!
In all honesty, though, I have not been good about entering my food into Livestrong.com. In fact, I haven’t entered in anything in two weeks. And I know that without being in the habit of doing something good for myself like that, I won’t stay on track. I will fall into the trap that is not caring and not watching and having three meals a day be delicious fried goodness. I mean, I live in the South, y’all, and I am about as Southern as they come.
So, I signed in this morning and entered my breakfast to get myself back in the habit of entering my food again. (That week of break really screwed me up in terms of keeping up with my food intake!)
I’m also going to download the Livestrong App for the iPhone so that I can calculate my food on the go. Maybe that will make it easier for me to keep up with things when I’m not near a computer and/or out of the house and in need of better choices.
That’s my plan for now. Enter in my food and survive the rest of Hellmonth.
What’s your plan?
