August 30, 2005 – Slow and steady

Current weight: 323
Difference from last entry: -1

Down another pound. Yay! It’s so exciting to see the weight go down, especially during a time frame when I wasn’t on my best behavior. And I like to see that downward movement ‘cuz it shows that some of my work is paying off. While I wasn’t on my best behavior, I was also mixing in some of my old tricks. Like I’ve been walking down to the mailbox with Colin a couple times a week. And I’ve been trying to limit the bad stuff that I eat. I still eat bad stuff from time to time, but at least I’m reducing the amount.

And that’s obviously had a little effect. Any week when I don’t gain is good. Any week that I lose is even better. It’s like the Chutes and Ladders analogy that I like to use here. I’m continuing to keep playing the game. Which assures that I will eventually get to the goal.

I have some good news to report on the anchor front. As I’ve stated before, I’m using a watch that Erin gave me as my anchor. It’s something that I can use to remind myself to be good when I’m tempted. The watch had been stored away for so long that it’s battery was completely drained. So I stopped and got a new battery.

I know, that sounds silly. But it is a step in the right direction for me.

Trust me!
