Almost one year later…

My last post was almost a year ago. I was actually considering waiting until September, so I could officially go a full year between posts! That’s the kind of thing that leads to inertial stand-still, though, so it’s definitely a Bad Idea.

And so here I am. 48 weeks later, a whole lot heavier. My unofficial weigh-in today put me at 326 lbs. I gained back all of the weight that I lost last year, but I completely expected to do that. I only lost the weight because I was forced onto a liquid diet for two months for medical reasons. If that hadn’t been the case, I would be right about the same weight I am now. On the plus side, I guess that means I’ve been maintaining my weight. On the negative side, it means I’ve been maintaining my weight. A whole year of not doing much at all is exactly the outcome I should’ve expected. And I did, I’ve gotta be honest. I was choosing to be lazy, and it shows in my weight and in my body.

This is not a “beat myself up” post, though. This post represents another commitment within myself, a promise that I’ll keep updating this journal at least sporadically. As I’ve said a million times before, as this journal goes, so my weight goes. When I’m attentive here, I’m accountable in my real world, and I lose weight. Slowly but certainly.

If anything, consider this a “reboot” post. Time to learn from the past, not to dwell on it. Time to ignore the future, because who knows what it holds? Time to think about this second, this moment.
