Day 187 in my journey to meet up with Mickey
Six months ago I began this pilgrimage to better health so I can enjoy our Walt Disney World vacation in October of this year. (8 months and 2 days to go!) Today was once again payday; it was time to step on the scale. I am only weighing myself once a month, because although I do want to lose weight, I mostly want to live a healthier lifestyle period. Things have slowed way down this month. I chalk it up to:
- winter (I’ve been told that from Stone-Age times we are programmed to hold on to our fat in the winter months, which means I’m hoping for more progress in spring/summer/autumn months)
- 59 years of age
- my body adjusting to a completely different lifestyle
- my difficulty walking because of my sore toe
Even with all of that working against me, I lost another pound this month. (I took a pound of butter out of the refrigerator to see what that feels like, and frankly, I’m glad this month’s pound is gone.) So now I’m down 38 pounds. I’ll take it. I do feel a lot better than I did 6 months ago. Even if I am making SLOW progress, it’s still progress, right?
Meet you at the Kingdom!
