New Day - Clean Slate - - Plodding Along

5/11/2015   Wt: 255 (at Rog's)

That scale is 10 pounds lower than mine.    Knowing that I am actually weighing 265 on my scale.

Looked over my weight over the past 20 years and see that once I settle in on a weight for a while - say after losing 15 pounds or so, my body clings to that with all it's might - - - so I end up staying there for quite a while.  It's like the body makes it it's new set point.  This tells me I have to fight hard to get through that leveling off.

Had major back problems after vacuuming the 3 bedrooms and bathrooms.  It finally has eased enough to allow me to be functional as of today.  Guess vacuuming is off the list for me.

Trying to decide on what I ABSOLUTELY want to take to MKE with me - and to get that packed before the end of the month.  Not an easy task.

Till Next Time .....

5/7/2015       Wt: 268     

Got estimates for the carpet cleaning and power washing of the patio.  Will not order either of them done right now.  Will see what I can do on my own.  However,  I did some vacuuming today and my back is hurting a lot.  Will try attacking the living room carpet myself - can't make it any worse than it is.  Can always put a rug over it.  The grill is gone and Helene might take the kneeling lady fountain, so the outside will be closer to ready.

Am invited to Rog & Kathy's for Mother's Day and will take the Sijan sculptures over there.  She offered to drive them to MKE.

The stress of getting these last items checked off the "sell" list has had me not be as attentive with my eating choices.  Today has been better.

Till Next Time ......

A New Start - A New Month

5/4/15    Ready to march on forward ~  ~ ~

Seems there is a feeling of being vulnerable when being "smaller" that has a 
negative effect to trying to lose weight.  It doesn't feel "safe" to be small - this is a basic animalistic throwback to caveman days.  Add to that personal experience in feeling helpless when being in a smaller body, and it needs to be worked on to not let it undo a lot of good work that is done toward becoming healthier.

'Till next time .......
