No one likes the doctor's office scale

No one is really excited about yearly physicals at the PCP, right?

And stepping on that scale is no one's favorite activity.

Well, when I was really being good on my road to a healthy lifestyle (pre-Covid) I ENJOYED that yearly check-up and actually annoyed getting on the scale. Yeah, that's weird. But it's true.

In the past I would ask after I weighed in what my weight was, because I knew I was down from the last visit.

This time I'm not so anxious, lol. But it is a good starting point, and I'm thinking of it as a positive. I will step on that scale knowing I gained weight since last March, and owning it.

Sometimes in a weight loss journey you need to take a step back and just own where you are, good or bad. I've kept  a good bit off, and I'm proud of that. And I know I can lose more. It's been more difficult with everyone home. It's harder for me to be accountable. And since I've been unsure about going out, Mr. G does more of the shopping, and it's not that I don't enjoy the junk food he brings home, I mean who isn't happy to see donuts or cheese curls? I just had more control over saying no to buying them when I was shopping.

Do I want to go to the store? Nope.

New hurdle, and we'll figure it all out.

But tomorrow I begin again. I set a goal for myself for a year out, and I'm ready to do this.

I also signed up to walk in the virtual MS Walk this May, because my mom suffers from MS as well as my Uncle and a few of my friends. I decided to walk to give myself a reason to get moving again, get off the couch, and start getting in steps.

I'm sure I'll sign up for a few more, the Suicide Prevention Walk, and maybe the Heart Walk.

I plan to do my best to walk as much as I can. Even though it won't be a gathering where all the participants walk together.

I'll keep you posted as to what ones I walk.

Will you be walking in any fundraising walks this year - in a group or virtually?
