Weigh-in Wednesday: horseshoes & hand grenades



You know that saying, "Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades"? That's how I feel. Almost made it to goal before my last race of the season, but not quite.

Starting Weight (11-28-12): 153.6
Last week: 144.0
This week: 143.2
Change: down .8
Total change: down 10.4

I'm not under 140 today but that really doesn't matter. The fact that my clothes fit again (actually, many of them are too big) and that I just bought 2 pair of summery jeans in sizes 4 and 6 and a bunch of size small shirts is what matters.

Am I going to keep lobbing those horseshoes and hand grenades, hoping I hit my target? Of course I am.  It's what I do. But I'm also going to keep my eyes on the bigger picture.

So, I may not have exactly the relationship with gravity I'd like to have right now, but I know that I'm so much more than the number on the scale.  That's what matters most.
