Not as large a drop as last week, but I am all for slow and steady progress. It chafes because I want instant results, but it is something I can maintain. Plus, I probably wouldn’t trust instant results.
And I feel pretty good this week, healthwise.
Some residual stuffiness due to weather changes, but as the changing weather took down the ragweed my eyes are feeling the relief even if my nose has yet to reap the benefits. while this happens every year, this year it is kind of interesting. One sniffle and everyone around you suddenly looks at you as though you are Typhoid Mary.
It has been interesting. First off you can automatically tell who has allergies of any sort because they just look at you and say, ragweed? And then you nod and everyone goes about their business. Because it’s kind of an issue where I live. Those with no allergies look momentarily concerned until area logic kicks in. The best reactions are from those people still running around without masks. They have a monetary flash of panic, despite the fact that I am wearing a mask.
It is amusing. A dark amusement, but an amusement nonetheless.
But soon enough the thermometer will stop yo-yoing and settle into autumn, with temps decreasing into winter. My nose will settle down, the sniffing will stop. Until spring of course when the seasons once again fight for dominance. Personally. I’m just glad autumn finally managed to get a few punches into summer. For a while it didn’t look like it was going to win the fight and have to just tag in Winter fo the KO.
Or at least that is how it seemed here.
But the end result is that (nose not withstanding) I feel good about what I did this week. My exercise was consistent, my calories were pretty much on point. My one indulgence this week was really the commiserating glass of Reisling to make me feel better about electronic malfunctions. I also felt better about getting it out of the fridge as it had been there longer than I felt comfortable leaving an open bottle of wine around. The last glass was still lovely, but you could sort of taste that it wasn’t going to remain lovely for very much longer. so at least it didn’t go to waste.
So, to the stats!
Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last week’s weight: 218.2 lbs
This week’s weight: 217.6 lbs
This week’s loss: 0.6 lbs
Total loss thus far: 28.4 lbs
Like I said above, it wasn’t a huge loss, but it was a loss. And it is a loss I feel good about. I didn’t starve myself or massively over indulge. I dodged the rain to get my walks in, but got a walk in most days this week. It felt like a good week over all. Minus the electronic angst. That i could have lived without.
