I have days of being completely ungrateful, when I really have nothing to be ungrateful about! I have made a decision to adopt an attitude of thankfulness. I had actually spoken that thought out loud this weekend.
So what do you think happens?
I stepped on the scales this morning, and I’ve gained weight.
And I thought I deserved to see a loss! Last week, I started walking again after not walking for two or so months…about a mile a day. We went to Tuscaloosa for “A Day” and I did a lot of walking and stair climbing (with not a lot of overeating…but definitely some unhealthy eating). Yesterday, I upped my mile to 1.5 miles. Today, a weight gain.
I really wanted to moan, groan, and carry on.
But I decided to thank God for every pound I’ve lost,
For every day I have walked in freedom…
And stay off the scales for a few days!
I shouldn't complain. It has occurred to me that the longer it takes to come off, the less baggy-skinned I may be. I can already see that I’m going to have to start working out my arms…getting a little saggy on the upper arm! I know I won't be tight and toned like a 20 year old, but I don't want to be a deflated balloon, either. And I’m noticing extra lines on my face that I didn’t use to see. I’m sure pushing 50 has nothing to do with sags, bags and lines!
May 13 will be nine months walking in freedom. I will post weight loss on that day…just in case you’re interested.
