Counting up the Small Victories


Man weighing himself on a scale [CC]Ok, confession time… …I’ve not exactly been a “good boy” since coming back from Worlds.  So, this past weekend, I got myself moving again, figuratively speaking.

I also have let you know that it is TOUGH getting moving in a positive direction after after falling back on old habits!  Yes, friends and neighbors, breaking a downward spiral is tough.  Really tough.  I found myself thinking today “Gaining weight and getting out of shape is easy; loosing weight and getting into shape is hard.  Very hard.”  [Watch for a coming post on the difference between “being overweight” and “being out of shape”.  They often are used synonymously but they are actually two different things.

Tanita ScaleSo here I am, looking at the numbers this week on the scale and NOT feeling great about the numbers I’m seeing.  I track both weight and body fat by weighing twice a day.  For body fat, I use the TBF-531 Body Fat Monitor/Scale by Tanita.   It uses the electrical impedance method of measurement.

Omron Body Fat MonitorI also use the Omron Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306.  I take two measurements in the morning, one from each device and then average the  numbers.   And then I repeat the measurement in the evening, giving me four measurements per day.  I weigh in twice a day and average those two numbers as well.

Well, that’s how I track my progress when I’m actually *ahem* tracking my progress and I haven’t been regularly *AHEM* tracking my progress (or lack thereof) since Worlds.  Which brings me back to my original statement at the beginning of this entry “I haven’t been a good boy since Worlds”  *SIGH*

So.  Hello mild depression. Glad to meet you, let you introduce you to my good friend “mild frustration.”  Oh you two know each other?  I thought you might.   *SIGH*

So what to do?  Read the rest of this entry
