Yikes!

Got on the scale for the first time in a while. Yikes! Going up. Not good. I'm at a weight I haven't been at since early November when I was on the "weight loss kick" post-heart issues in October. It is simply the case that I've been lax for much of February and March, and the corresponding ice cream, candy at work and general grazing since the start of the tennis season have made for the obvious change in state. Heavy people don't have a "cruise" button. It requires vigilance. Maybe skinny people are vigilant too, and that's why they're skinny.

So, back to good patterns, because I am NOT going back to my heaviest. NOT going to do it.

Some skinny people are vigilant (or hungry -- I have a friend who says she can only be the weight she wants if she's always a little hungry, which I think is a bad idea, but then again, she's skinny and I'm not). Some skinny people just have a metabolism that allows them to eat what they want and not gain weight. That used to tick me off all the time -- I've never been that person -- but I'm trying to learn to accept it without being bitter.

As for me, I'm looking forward to swimming my 1000 laps this summer.
