It’s been unsettling not having a scale, I’m used to the comfort of seeing that number every day. The last reading on my home scale was 152, but two different scales on three different days this week give me 156. So I have 8 pounds to go until I’m not “overweight” any more, not 4. Whatever, it’s going to take forever, if I ever get there. Maybe the scale they have at gyms are more accurate than mine, I never got the same number two days in a row at home. Maybe this also means that I did start at 199 (from gym), not the 195 I prefer in my mind. I did an initial consultation at 24Fitness, they likely have not just my starting weight, but measurements. I should get those numbers, see where I am today.
I’m liking the East Bay, it’s friendlier, less crowded, less hectic. It’s taking some adjustment, I’m very aggressive, especially driving, for here. I’ll adjust eventually. I’m going to make a serious attempt to be social and make friends, but today I am finally taking a break, after way too long spent moving, and going for a hike. I’m going to go check out some camping spots where we can try backpacking, maybe 2-4 miles into the woods, as a first try. Camera is broken, so no pictures. 😦
Farmer’s Markets here have some fine stuff, but major sticker shock for me. I guess it’s what the market will bear, but I won’t pay. $3.90/lb for peaches? I’ve found one market not that outrageous, and I managed to get a large watermelon, pounds of stone fruit, strawberries, veggies, all home on bicycle, in my panier bags. I hardly need a car at all here, that’s kind of nice.
OK, not so quick a post, but finally I want to thank Jennifer, at Ex-Hot Girl, for giving me a blog award. Unfortunately, I’m too lazy and cynical to pass it on, and they sort of remind me of chain letters. I certainly appreciate the sentiment, and congratulations on graduating from obesity to overweight!
