I take comfort in the fact that I didn't gain any weight. I lost a tiny bit and I didn't gain. I do know that I gained fat and lost muscle, though. My legs have lost the firmness that was starting to show and I feel generally less in-shape than before.
I'm going to ease my way back into the exercising. Perhaps just start with a mile-a-day walk for a week, then up it to two miles, etc. etc. Cut all the fast food I've gone back to out of my diet. Quit with the midnight runs to the gas station for Mountain Dew and gummy worms . . .
My interests and life-goals present themselves in cycles. I've lost sight of my Navy-goal, though I'm sure it will come back to me in a few months. Right now I'm more into certain types of music and art and fashion. I don't know what I want to do with my life but I know what I want to look like while doing it and that requires me to lose AT LEAST 20 more pounds. So I'm going to set my goal for 160. So here goes!
Current Weight: 184.5
Goal Weight: 160
+/- Since Last Weigh-In: -2.5
