    I didn't see many threads, but what I saw was ... interesting. With my luck, I'd add my two cents to some of those topics and find out later that the person I was posting to was a client.

    Anyway, the damage to my PB'ness yesterday was not as bad as it could have been:



    Damage to my heart is yet to be determined. Que sera sera.

    BAS yesterday - as in Big Ass Steak! Gave me a bit of a bellyache, though, I think. Beets today to fix that. (Hi MaBelle!)

    I wasn't gonna go full on into one of the fitness challenges until after this 30 days was over, but for some reason today I feel READY and so I think I'm gonna just jump in. Been skimming PB Fitness, but I'm gonna really read it today cover to cover and get started.

    I've been stalled at the same weight since the first week. Feeling slightly discouraged. Need to buck up.

    I thought you put the scale away?

    Do PB fitness. Go for adding muscle instead of scale watching.

    (In other words, I am fully supporting you in bucking up )

    Metta, not sure if you checked out my progress pics on my journal but the newest ones show what doing PBF will do for you.

    a_phoenix - Yeah, I got all self-righteous about how great I am because I took the batteries out of the scale and "lost" them. But then I "found" them and I was right back to the daily weigh-in. Ha. I'm so weak....

    Georgette - I did go back in your thread to find the pictures just now - thanks! Very inspiring and a reminder that I shouldn't let the numbers on the scale be so important to me.

    I think I'm just impatient because of a few things. One is that I'm gonna be fiftyfawkingfour in just over a week. And as unrealistic as it is, I'd like to cure some (most) of the bad damage I did to my body for the past year or so by then. Crazy, I know. There're a lot of other motives/desires/insecurities that are driving my impatience, too.

    And I need to give more than just lip service to admiring goals like "Vitality, Joy, Play". It's hard, though, when you just don't feel very good about yourself.

    The truth is that I'm only a few pounds off from what's been my normal weight for the past ten years. I've mostly just stayed between 132-137. But even though I was often dissatisfied with that weight - that 132-137 LOOKED at least 10lbs less that the 140 that I'm carrying right now. I really let myself go. More than let myself go. I self-sabotaged big time for the past year and I guess I should be happy that at least I'm on the road to correcting some of that.
