Reflection

Thursday, January 23, 2014


After we had a big flood in our basement our files were carelessly put back in our cabinets in our basement by the restoration company. I am now sorting them out, at least my section of them.

Going through the files is like travelling through old memories. I found some of my old Weight Watchers booklets where my weight was recorded over months. Interestingly, a pattern of loss and gain occurred in 1991 and 1998 that was identical to each other. I got down to about 158 pounds, struggled and crept back up to 202 pounds. To the pound! I only kept these particular years but I belonged to Weight Watchers for decades and the pattern was always the same lose some but gain it all back and sometimes more!

For the last two years of exercising and sparking I have managed not to creep up vastly in weight. I range anywhere from 158 pounds to about 170 pounds. This may not seem like an accomplishment to some because I haven't reached a goal and maintained it. However, when I reflect on my past I feel very accomplished my weight ranges amongst 12 pounds up or down and it feels so great not to have it spiral completely out of control.

    I vote that you have met your goal... not to reclaim all that weight back once again.. And yes I can see that you will get that range if not smaller then lower... 158 to 170 sounds a lot larger than it is I mean 160 to 170 doesn't seem any where near the same range... Maybe if it were 156 to 168 ?? sounds better !?!... but then who really cares beside you... I love YOU, the you I chat with the one you cheers me on, or maybe tells me what I need to hear.,,. You live in a perfect body as far as I am concerned. Keep comfy and stay safe, Love and hugs, Audra
