I know it's only been 2 days since I've been tracking, but I've kept my calories to within the range I set on MFP (1500 for those of you wondering) so I guess I was expecting the scale to at least be the same, not up again. Maybe 1500 calories are too much and I need to drop it back down to 1200. Kind of scary when I've eaten a healthy breakfast and lunch today totaling about 850 so far. Doesn't leave much for dinner besides some lettuce.
I wrote the check-in post for The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans today. The irony isn't lost on me that I'm now weighing within a few pounds of what I weighed when I started blogging in 2009, writing for a fitness/weight loss site, and not being able to practice what I preach. To be honest, that makes me really sick. That post could be written today with the only exception being that I am much more active now. Back then I'd done a few really slow 5ks and now I've done 15 half marathons, and 2 full marathons.
But I'm still overweight. I could say the last almost 6 years were all for nothing, but I know they weren't. I'm definitely healthier than back then. More active for sure. But I feel like I've learned nothing about what to put in my body to keep me a size I can tolerate and feel good about. Sigh.
Because I'm having a bit of a pity party here's some timely Shel Silverstein instead. Kinda wishing it was still Christmas time.
