Yes, the giddiness of my prior achievement made me gain over 3 lbs. So much for reaching new goals and being respectful to them. Lesson learned, I hope. I may need some deep analysis of the situation to understand why I sabotage my efforts when I see a new low on the scale.  However, I do not feel capable of such study right now. Thank goodness in my case it is a  “1 step back, 2 steps forward” position and  not the contrary.

It took me well over a week to get back on track and losing again, without gimmicks like starving or going to bed early to avoid eating (but dreaming of foods all night).  Next goal is to lose another 20 lbs in 2 and 1/2 months – not sure I can do it, but now that I am less heavy I can add swimming on a regular basis to my schedule. I hope swimming helps.

…And  to anyone out there that may be reading, thank you for stopping by and giving me some silent support. 🙂
