Weigh-In: The Longer You Stay Away

Hello!  Life is beginning to settle around these parts.  We are getting used to our new hometown here in Arlington, Texas and little by little I'm getting back into a normal daily groove again. 

I know some of you understand when you've been out of the weigh-loss/caring-about-your-weight groove it's hard to get back into it.  I'm feeling it more and more this time.  

I vacillate between not caring and refusing to buy a bigger size clothing, even if everything I wear now is almost indecent it's so tight.  (for my tastes anyway -- I could fit right in with some ladies I've seen around town.  HA!)

In fact, this fighting to get back in the groove is why the following statement really caught my attention on the radio the other day. 

The DJ was talking about going to a dental appointment and made a comment along the lines of, "The longer you stay away, the longer you'll have to stay at your next visit."

Isn't that the truth?!

As a dentist's wife I've heard many stories about bad dental hygiene and the hours and costs required to correct things that could've been avoided with simple daily dental practices.

As a women who has been overweight in the past, and put on some weight recently, I could relate as well.  The longer I deny what is going on with my weight the harder it is to get back into the groove. 

And the more weight I put on the longer I'll have to spend trying to get it back off again.  

So, that is why on August first I weighed myself.  I faced the gain that put me at 189.0 pounds.  It was hard, but the longer I let things go the harder it's going to be to get it back off. 

I'm not fully back in the groove, but I am making small changes to get back there and today it showed when I weighed in at 187.0 pounds.  It's only two pounds down, but I'll take it.

Honestly, I don't look forward to having to lose weight again, but I know it will be worth it.  And I don't want to stay away any longer and drawing out the uncomfortableness of tight clothes any longer than necessary.
