I had to do a little math today to figure out what the title of this weigh in is 6 missed weeks. Here is the damage:
Current Weight: 295.6 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: -6.2 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: -10.4 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 144.6 lbs
I went back and looked at my weigh in from this week last year and I was at 293.8, so the past year has been a wash. I will say this: I have maintained a reasonably healthy lifestyle, I have not backtracked, I have had a couple of good gigs, and I think I have finally pushed through the burnout I have been dealing with. The past six weeks have been "the deep breath before the plunge" to quote Tolkien. I feel the need not to rationalize my actions, but to "jujitsu" the admitted failures into a springboard for positive action moving forward. I think I can do that. I had 4 great days this week, and I probably salvaged 3 or 4 pounds by getting back on track earlier in the week. My show closes Sunday, and the rental season is slowing, so a re-commitment to the principals that succeeded last year should be within my power. A renewed focus on physical health needs to be there as well, so walks and workouts need to pick up. I know that very quickly I can get back to my low water mark and beyond.
