Checking in

It has been a year of ups and downs. I never went back up over 185, but I certainly spent some time north of 180. Mostly my goal was to keep my weight under 180 -- and when I say weight, I mean my 7 day average weight.  And OK, my 30 day average weight too.

Finally, I've been able to achieve this.  Both these numbers have been under 180 for a couple of months now.  I'm starting to dream of once again achieving the ranks of "normal weight" or just plain old not overweight.

One thing I have been very good about since the last post is tracking.  I weight myself everyday and keep it in a spreadsheet.  Ironically, this seeming hyper-vigilance makes the whole process much less stressful.  Weight still pops around, but the average weight is more sluggish.  I've gotten  much better at worryng less about the daily battles and focusing more on the long-term war.

30 Day Ave: 178.1
