Weigh-In Wednesday #80: 153.2

I have gained some weight.  It’s been bothering me for the past few days, but I need to take it all in stride.  I haven’t gained too much to reverse it easily, so I am really going to try to make better decisions about what I choose to eat and how often I indulge in alcohol.  Just to take it all in small bits, I would like to get back down to 150, then after that try for 145 again.  You know, I always knew that there would come a time when I’d have to revisit and reprogram my brain as far as food goes.  While it is certainly possible to never have these issues at all, it’s just not the case for me this time around.  I hope to lose about 1-2 pounds a week until I can get back at the weight I feel the most comfortable at.

I had a really good time last night at the Shooting the Moon event at Oak Hill Cemetery.  I almost didn’t go at all, as it was still raining on my drive down there.  But as soon as I arrived the rain stopped and the clouds started to part.  The full moon was very visible during the time that I was there.  There were lots of little groups exploring around with flashlights, but I stuck to myself and did my own thing.  I’m not the best night photographer (by a long shot, ba da dum) but I did get a few pictures that were halfway decent.  There is something really satisfying about taking photos and the instant gratification that it gives you when you finally capture a good one.  It also felt very sneaky to be alone in a graveyard at night, very appropriate for Halloween.

I think I need to do more adventurous things like that alone, as it helps me to realize that I don’t need another person to feel good and have fun.  I enjoy my own company a great deal and am perfectly capable of entertaining myself.  Plus, after having these fun experiences I get to share them on my blog… which for me is a form of reaching out and being social in of itself.  I think it is basic human nature to want to be with another person, but until that happens there is still a lot to discover about just being with me.
