Random thoughts on a Tuesday...

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Haven't weighed in a month. To quote Ron White, well except the ugly, words - it's cold, it's dark and I don't wanna. LOL Could tell I had gained some and was playing ostrich. If I don't weigh, I don't know if I gained. Have this program through my company called Livongo. They send you free scales. I already had a perfectly good set of scales, but FREE scales! And, they connect through Bluetooth and track your progress. Also reminds you when you haven't weighed in a while. Like I didn't know?

Anyway, also have an app called OnTrack where I can follow my blood sugar and blood pressure. Two things I have to watch. You can also log weight. I've been logging since March 2017, so after most of my weight loss. Still, it's revealing to see nearly four years of data. To put it numerically, at my current weight, I am down 20lbs from my high during this time period. That's a plus, and I'm up 8lbs from my low. Not the end of the world.

All is not lost, as I'm only up 7lbs since COVID, but here's what I really like - only 3 lbs since Thanksgiving.

Putting it on paper (in a blog) helps me face reality and maintain some accountability. Plus, the numbers speak to me that all is not lost. Why would it be? From my all-time high, I'm down 102lbs!!!

At 65, I've lived longer than I have left to life. Physical things are harder because I'm not fit or at my most healthy weight. They'll only get harder, but I do have some say in that. It's on me to lose the weight, increase the exercise, feed the body and soul well.

Thanks to my friend, Mel, for checking in on me in my absence from SP. It's a wonderful blessing to have Spark friends ready to throw you a lifeline and pull you back in.

    I think yo7 have done very well during this Covid time. I wish I could say the same. I love the idea of your c9moany sending you a scale. How awesome is that!!

    I like that you remind us "we do have some say" in the way we can live and you have proved that with the numbers! Looking forward to seeing you on track and at your best again. We have to fight Covid19 blues and feel young again (in our minds we can do this!)! Remembering we are not alone in this fight! Prayers for your MIL and all who are fighting Covid. emoticon
