Holy moly! HOLY CRAP! That’s the lowest I’ve seen a scale stop in two years, and I’ve gotta tell you, it felt really, really good. My weight has been yo-yoing for a long, long time. I have a chart that I use to create the chart in the sidebar. That chart is a subset of a bigger chart I have, which runs from 2000 ’til now. There’s a whole lot of ups and downs in there, all trending up. But for the past 6 months or so, I’ve ben trending down, in a rather good way. And I like that!

There’ll almost definitely be a rebound this week. It’s been a stressful week, as I start transitioning into a new job. It’s been challenging some days to find a time to eat lunch. As a result, I’ve eaten some crap for lunch. And breakfast. And I’ve been “celebrating” the new job through a lot of crap, too. Add it all up, and I’ve had a pretty crappy eating week, to go with a mostly wonderful life week. I reckon that this isn’t a horrible trade, as long as it only happens once in a while.

So now that I know I’m being bad with my food choices, I can start turning this around. And do it pretty quickly, actually. I’m gonna start by making sure I pack a lunch every day. I’ll work on breakfasts in a week or two. Breakfasts are my favorite meal to eat out at. Though I did notice the other morning that I am getting tired of the choices for breakfast out. That’s usually a good thing: I got that way about lunch, and have done a good job over the last few months of bringing lunch with me. Hopefully this will be the start of me doing the same for breakfast.

One other thing that might help: I bought a new espresso machine as a celebration gift to myself. One of the reasons I like to eat out is so I can get a most excellent latte. If I can do that at home, then there’s even less reason to go out.

Oh, and i think that a Weight Watchers at Work program is about to start up. If that happens, then watch out. I’ve proven in the past that I can rock on weight watchers. I’ll be all over this if I do get started.
