On Weight

Weight is just a number.  The number means something different to everyone.

I’ve been fixated on two numbers.  200 and 175.  175 lbs is my goal weight. 200 is the barrier that I’ve been trying hard to get below and stay below.  So far I have failed both of these numbers.

What do I owe to these numbers?  Why do I obsess over them?  Numbers are hard facts, even if they aren’t the right facts.

I haven’t weighed myself since April 1st.  I’ve been trying not to obsess.  I have been overeating, and have probably gained a little weight.  I’ve also been putting quite a few miles on the bike.  Maybe it will balance out, maybe not.

I will start weighing myself again, but not yet.  Maybe in June.
