Meet a Member - Melissa T - week #58

All Well and Good!

May 19 & 26, 2015


Thoughts for the Week…

The month of May is typically filled with all sorts of celebrations…multiple parties to celebrate the end of another school year, graduations, retirement parties, birthdays, Memorial Day gatherings, etc. The one common item at almost all of these gatherings is not just food, but CAKE! The scale made it apparent that I’d eaten too much cake. I gained 3.2 pounds over the course of 2 weeks…that’s atrocious! It amazes me just how quickly a person can gain weight, and how much darn work it takes to get it back off.


As I look back at my Blog from a year ago, here is what was going on:


At Accountability last night I decided I needed a long-term goal. During this next week my job is to think about where my ultimate destination will be. I know I want the fat around my lower gut to be gone, my calves to be smaller, my arms to be less flappy, and my thighs to be less “thunderous”. Does that mean a specific number on the scale? Or do I just want my body to “feel” right? I don’t know yet.


Well, the fat around my lower gut is still there. Or maybe it’s just extra flabby skin that will never go away. My calves are smaller, but I still don’t like them. Sometimes I feel like my arms are more flappy because of the loose skin. And my thighs are still thunderous. So…Have I met those goals? Not exactly those goals in particular, but I can say I’ve met the more measurable goal of a specific number on the scale. And just because I’ve gained a couple of pounds and am above my goal weight, that doesn’t take away the fact that I’m well and good with how my body feels right now. So according to those terms, I’d say, YES! I’ve met my goal! Now to set a new one!
