The scale is moving south -- about 3.5 pounds or so but I'm not doing any cartwheels because, first and foremost, I don't want the number on the scale to dictate my mood.
I want to concentrate on how good my body feels minus a few tweaks here and there. I haven't had a cold in ages and I'm hoping that trend continues despite the fact that my immediate coworker is taking antibiotics etc. right now and every other person sounds like they have whooping cough.
In addition, I feel like I'm on old stomping grounds. I lost weight when I was in Las Vegas and between August and December, I mysteriously gained 15 pounds. So, I still have some ground to make up but the scale doesn't make me moody like it used to and that's progress.
I was telling Hazira that maybe my body type is just chunky but I remembered something Dr. Oz wrote or said. He suggested looking at a high school picture to gauge your weight.
As a child, I wasn't chunky. I did put on a significant amount of weight in high school until I shed it playing basketball.
I have no idea what I weighed in this photo because I didn't keep track of that kind of thing back then but I was definitely not chunky. So, I'm gonna have to stop saying that chunky is my natural body type.
I even had my shirt tucked in -- something that I didn't do for decades because when I got bigger, I never wore anything tight and I didn't wear belts either.
And the posing? I definitely don't do that anymore...
How's your journey going or what's going on in your corner of the world?
