Not Bad, Not Bad

I stepped on the scale this morning, and the news wasn’t bad. I made it through the whole holiday season just fine. It was iffy because I ate whatever I wanted from November until New Year’s Eve. There was no WW going on. Not even a meeting.

I know what kept my weight stable was the intermittent fasting (IF). I didn’t lose any weight, but didn’t gain any either. With WW and IF there would have been weight loss. The IF kept me from gaining.

This morning, I did a WW meeting to try and keep myself motivated. I’m not doing any New Year’s resolution on losing weight, but I am making a resolution to attend one WW meeting per week, only eat between 11:00 am and 7:00 pm, walk a minimum of 5,000 steps per day, and drink 64 ounces of water. I could aim higher, but that could lead to self-sabotage. I want to be successful.

Someone said during the WW meeting this morning, “1% better is better. How much is 1%? Maybe 15 minutes of a WW meeting one time in 2022, IF for 3.65 days, 50 steps more each day, and a 2-pound weight loss for the year? I’m sure that’s not completely mathematically accurate, but a 2-pound weight loss in a year is still “better.”

I also want more joy in my life. I’m happy and content most of the time, but am I joyous? Not really. I’m working on feeling the joy.

Is anxiety just a series of delusions?

Think about it.
