120 Lbs.

Somehow, between now and the last time I went home, which was about two months ago, I gained three pounds. Three pounds is HUGE to me. Now I’m 120, a weight goal I was try­ing to hit by the time I was in my mid-30’s. Instead of eat­ing choco­late eclairs, ice cream, chips and dip, indi­vid­u­al­ly wrapped Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, straw­ber­ry cheese­cake, choco­late bars, and oth­er such munch­ables, I’m going to try to take advan­tage of post-ses­sion taste enhance­ment and eat fruits, veg­eta­bles, yoghurt, and oth­er healthy foods. There’s just some­thing about salt though, a cer­tain taste that can’t be found in the fruits that I like. Except for bananas. Bananas rule.

I need to pick up some bananas today.

The Weight Barrier

Somehow, I’m at an all-time high of 117 lb. In the last three years I’ve been fluc­tu­at­ing between 114–115, no mat­ter how much or how lit­tle I ate. I nev­er even imag­ined that I’d break the 115 bar­ri­er, so sud­den­ly find­ing out that I was this…“heavy” came as a huge sur­prise. I’m guess­ing that it’s my metab­o­lism adjust­ing to being on a reg­u­lar sched­ule of three meals a day now, on top of the extra exer­cise that caus­es me to eat like a BEAST.
