losing weight?

Losing weight is a bit of a misnomer. I wish it was as easy as misplacing it. It’s not. It’s working it. It’s working the weight off. I know exactly where I put each of those pounds I no longer wear.

I’ve worked most of them off because of the calorie counting. A lot them are gone because of the treadmill walking (I loves me my treadmill!). Some of them have probably been squashed by the three-plus liters of water I drink each day.

Now don’t get me wrong, this work is isn’t complex and it isn’t that hard when you get down and dirty with it and begin a rhythm, but it is work.

For me, the work involves planning ahead to make sure I eat my meals consistently and my portions are appropriate. It’s making a list of the foods I need to buy when I go shopping. It’s cooking enough food ahead of time to get me through until the next time I’ll have the time to cook again. It’s exercise. It’s also making sure to enjoy the progress and accomplishments whenever (and wherever on my body) they happen.
