Big Weigh-In


     164.4 (lowest in over 10 years!)

So this is one of the weeks where I actually want to do a Weigh-In post! Yay! That means I lost weight, obviously...

The challenges of blogging (staying accountable) when I am not losing? Hard to write an upbeat, cheery, encouraging post when you feel like crap. Hard to tell other people I messed up. Hard to face the fact that I am working to lose weight and I, in fact, have not. Those are the challenges.

But there are benefits. Posting when things aren't rosey (even if it's not a post complete with bathroom photo) reminds me that life is not always upbeat, cheery or encouraging, nor does it need to be. Telling other people that I have messed up keeps me grounded, reminds me that I am not the rock star I sometimes make myself out to be in my head. =] It lets other people know that they are not abnormal or alone. It represents the fact that even when I have not lost weight I am still, in fact, working at it. I have not given up.

I will never give up.

You look amazing!! Accountability is hard for me. I want to sing from the mountain top when the scale is moving down...when it's moving up or staying still I'm quiet as a church mouse.

Keep doing what you do...it looks good on you.

these are the reasons i've started my own weight loss blog, and started talking openly in my own everyday life about my exercise and diet efforts. i figure if i make the people around me aware of what i'm trying to do, i'll be less likely to give up, b/c i feel the pressure of people watching!

i'm new here, and glad to have found your blog.
