Unfortunately, there’s nothing new to report with diet check-in #11. My weigh-in this morning resulted in the same sad number as last week, which was an even 260 pounds.

That does suck, but it could have been worse. It could have been higher. Honestly, under the circumstances, I’m surprised I haven’t just been ballooning up. In last week’s entry, I reported that I had lost some ground. It had been a rough couple of weeks, and that negative trend has carried through to this week.

Weekly Weigh-in: 260.0

spinning my wheels but feeling hopeful

There is good news though. I also reported last week that I felt like I had a pretty good idea of why I let things get off track. That knowledge, hopefully, will help me turn things around. I just sort of gave myself another week to sort out some things.

At any rate, I’m hopeful that next week I’ll have a net loss in weight to report. I may still be a long way off from the short-term goal that I am working toward…what was it? Was I shooting for 253? I think so. Anyway, if it’s anything less than 260, I will consider that a victory. Yes, it will be a very small victory, but it’s a step in the right direction. Of course, Thanksgiving is the following weekend, which will present its own set of challenges, and immediately following Thanksgiving, is about a month of stress and anxiety as the holidays and the new year approaches.

For now though, I’m going to choose to not worry so much about that stress and anxiety. I can only focus on there here and now and deal with the rest as it comes. I’m sure it’ll be tough, but if I continue to mindful, I think I’ll be alright.
