Slow progress - disappointment and triumph
Monday, April 05, 2021
I might be blogging just for the sake of blogging today. I'm firmly in the 180s now. That feels great. That's the triumphant part. The disappointing part is that it is going so slow. Yesterday, when I went to my goals sheet to cross off the 10% goal (hooray), I was looking at the dates of the previous two goals.
Get into 180s (189.8) - 3.1.21
Lose 20 pounds (188) - 4.1.21
That's exactly a month for less than 2 pounds. So, on the one hand, I'm super happy to be not obese anymore, and happy to be firmly in the 180s (not bouncing around back and forth between that and the 190s). But I'm also disappointed that my little yellow goal line has once again left me behind, as it marches blithely down its path, unaware of the disparity between what I want and what I have. Alas, I am feeling resigned to the notion that I might have to let go of the little yellow goal line altogether, as it keeps pointing out my failure to follow it.
Today is laundry day, which means multiple trips up and down the stairs. I'm counting that as my workout. I think I need to find another fitness class, as that seems to be my best motivator for fitness.
