Well, it's only been, what, a month and a half since my last post? Less than that, really. What can I say, it's just been a busy time for me.
And yes (sigh) if you're going to drag it out of me, I did get a little discouraged there, for a while. Because my weight just kept creeping up and up and up and UP and I couldn't seem to get the little needle on the scale to bounce in the opposite direction.
But here I am, happy to report that, although I was, indeed, all the way up to ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE POUNDS last Saturday, I treated that like the wake-up call it was, and took the following actions:
1. Bought a two-year nonrenewable 24 Hour Fitness membership through Costco for $299.
2. Used it.
3. Also went for a couple of long walks around Lake Balboa (in the Sepulveda Basin).
And thanks to those, and my decision to get back on track and start losing again, I am proud to report that at this past Saturday's weigh-in, I did indeed FINALLY make the needle move in the right way. Left, that is. I mean, depending on your viewpoint. I mean, there really isn't even a needle, it's a digital scale and --
Oh yeah, my weight. Down 1.8 pounds, to 193.2. Happy now?
