Did Not Make it

I wrote how neat it would be to return from my trip at or below my lowest weight ever as an adult. I didn't do that. In fact, I was up two pounds (233.0). To be honest I'm surprised it was not more. Why?
  • Could not walk or exercise because it hurt too badly. My body fat percentage rose, my muscle percentage fell.
  • Did not make great food choices.
  • Portion control was marginal -- not abysmal, but not great.
  • Did not listen to my hunger signal to tell me when to eat or when to stop.
I will get there. I always am quick to remind myself that this isn't a race, and that health is about so much more than a number. I am looking forward to breaking new ground on the scale and pushing toward ever larger goals, but am realistic enough to know that right now my body needs rest and attention so it can heal.

  1. No, you made it. You made it back home in a more healthy state than you left, you got help in Louisville when you needed, and you made yourself lie down when that was necessary (even though it was so boring). Take good care, heal well, heal for good, hugs!

  2. Welp, except for point #1 (which I hope you're doing better), points 2 thru 4 are pretty normal for vacationers. And I want to confess, that given a vacation I have NOT had in 6 overs years, I would activate points 2 thru 4 in a heartbeat.
