Ah, a new thread. Makes me feel like I can keep up with personals.
-- Sounds like you're doing fine, OP or not. At least it sounds like you're not out of control. I am sorry to hear about your friend
-- Welcome back!! Sometimes we just hit those types of places where it is so hard to stay on track. The important thing is to not let those times completely derail us!
-- yay for a loss even after High Holidays!! Or, in the middle of them.
-- nice long walk!! That is awesome.
-- I think I have lost my mind over numbers more times than I can count (haha). But I agree with you, the scale is a pretty poor indicator of our progress toward healthy bodies. It sounds like your behaviors are exactly what they should be, so forget the scale! Your reward isn't going to be the number it gives you, but rather the new pants size that you'll be fitting into. Keep it up!
-- ooh a corn maze -- sounds fun!!
Well, as for me, I did OK at babysitting last night, but ate a lot more cheese than I would have in a normal situation. So far, the scale's been holding steady at 130.6, which I kind of don't believe, since it seems to say that whenever I step on it, but whatever, it's close enough. If it stays at that tomorrow for my WI, that'll be a pound loss, but I'd really like to shed that .6 and be at 130. Then it's just another pound to my October goal of 129!!
Have good, OP days Red Team!!
