Well, like the great Wrongway Feldman, I came to an important realization this morning when I did my weigh-in, as follows:
It’s that I’m no longer in weight LOSS mode — I’m in weight MAINTENANCE mode. And that’s a very different space!
It also makes the daily weight check a lot less stressful. Instead of worrying, as I did this morning, because my FIRST try at weighing in showed a whopping 185.4, and the SECOND, just a few seconds later, showed 184.0, that perhaps the battery was going bad, I should just adopt Mr. 50by60’s sage philosophy:
Wise words! So I’ll still weigh myself every week, but I won’t get all bent out of shape if it seems to be going in the wrong direction. At least, to paraphrase Wrong Way Corrigan (the real-life inspiration for Wrongway Feldman), that’s what I’m gonna say, till I believe it!
Have a great week, everyone! See you next week for — oh, let’s see — how’s about “Maintenance Monday”??
Yeah, that’s a good one! OK, have a great week! (OH and almost forgot — HAPPY CANADA DAY to all my friends above the border!)
I’m ba-a-ack! Had a wonderful time in Phoenix, connecting and/or reconnecting with relatives (big shout-outs to Laura and Rachel!), and of course, watching the “Big Bang Theory” finale!
However, as Rachel and I walked into my parents’ living room to watch Leonard, Sheldon, Amy and the gang say their final goodbyes, we were a tad nonplussed to find that a young neighbor child, Miss Billie, had taken over the sofa and was very, very determined to watch ANOTHER show, something called “Peppa Pig.” So naturally, I had to come up with what is probably the ONLY “Big Bang Theory/Peppa Pig” mashup you’ll ever see on the Internetz or anywhere else. Enjoy!
Oh yeah, I was gonna do a weigh-in too. Here ya go:
Dang! Well, obviously I’m still adjusting to this “No S” thing. I may go back to calorie counting if the weight keeps going up. Or I could just change my official weigh-in day to Tuesday instead of Monday, to avoid the post-weekend snacking bump. Or maybe count the calories while still doing the No S?
Yeah, that’s probably the best option! OK, I’ll just get back to my post-vacay routine and see how things go. See ya next week, everyone!
(*oh and btw, RIP to beloved Internet icon “Grumpy Cat!” Seven is too young for a cat to go, but your memes will live forever!)
RIP Grumpy Cat, the “Sheldon” of the cat world
Hey everyone! As promised, here’s my quickie weigh-in before I hit the road for Parts Unknown*!
Oh well, not really that surprised to see a bit of a gain. Remember, I’m now doing the “No S Diet” (no snacks, seconds, or sweets, except on days that start with S**) which means I’m eating a little more on weekends. So there’s gonna be a little bit of an adjustment till my Monday weigh-ins get in sync!
Meanwhile, as I said, I’m headin’ out to spend some quality time with the extended family! Hope you have a great week — see you next Monday!
(*well, Phoenix, ‘kay? Yeah, it’s pretty well known. Just doin’ my part to keep your Monday dramatic!)
(**S days: Saturday, Sunday, and “special,” which IMHO will DEFINITELY include Thursday evening, aka the SERIES FINALE of the Big Bang Theory!!)
