I think this blog may have run its course and I am having one of those "where do I go from here?" moments with it. I don't feel like I'm ready to go, exactly, but I definitely feel like I haven't had much to contribute to this awesome community lately.
I continue to gain weight. It was lose, gain, lose, gain, lose, but now I'm just on a gain, gain cycle. At least for the past couple of weeks anyway.
I should probably recap August. My goals were to lose 10 pounds and run 70 miles. I actually did pretty well. I lost 4 pounds and I ran 67.45 miles, and I honestly feel like that was a success.
But as of today, 9/15, I am 7 pounds heavier than I was on 8/31. I'm truly not obsessed with the number, but I have the weight history at my fingertips thanks to my handy iPhone. I don't sit and stare at the numbers all the time, or anything. But just know that these days I am thinking of the numbers constantly. CONSTANTLY. On my way to the fridge and back, especially.
Tomorrow I'm doing something I thought I would never do again in this life time. I'm going to a Weight Watchers meeting. A real, live meeting with the old bitties themselves. I actually bought the WW monthly pass as they are running a special where instead of the regular $39.95 monthly fee, you can pay $43.25 for two months. Two months is what I'm going to give it. I already pay $16.95 a month for the online membership so this isn't too much more, and it will give me the opportunity to connect with others in real life. I'm trying to have a positive attitude about that and hope for the best.
In related news, I rejoined the YMCA last week. That is a really good thing and I'm excited about it. I'm excited to try some different classes and use some of the different cardio machines besides the treadmill. I like the elliptical a lot so far. I'm happy to report that I've even been going before work!
I'm taking these steps to freshen things up and make some changes. I need to do something to get back the fire and motivation that I had before. I'm not sure what that will mean for my blog. I'm not ready to say good bye because I'm not done yet. But right now, I'm the last weight loss blogger you want to hear from.
