    So, getting back on track:

    1. The scale, as of now, says 213.2. That's not as bad as I imagined it would be.

    2. Since Clif bars are sugar with oats and protein thrown in, I've done a lot better switching to whole foods as a pre-workout and post workout snack. In fact, I just use gels and Gatorade now.

    3. Since restarting yoga and Pilates, the problems I was developing (including a pinched nerve in my right elbow) have basically disappeared.

    4. I am pleasantly surprised I've been able to get on track without slamming the panic button. I haven't had to drastically reduce calories or go for marathon workout sessions.

    5. And now, if I go out, I go somewhere I can get an omelette and toast. The reason I like Anna's House here in Holland is because one of their omelettes with buttered rye toast keeps me going until dinner.

    I have my semi-annual check-up in mid-August. I want to be under 185, BP below 115/75 on a consistent basis. 110/70 would obviously be better.

    I'm still fighting with that bottom number. It keeps jumping into the low 90's.

    I keep hearing that I don't need to lose weight.

    My brain translates that as "go ahead. Eat all the food."

    For once, I wish Google or someone would help with maintenance.

    There are mixed results in the search, but good options appear to be listed. Just remember to target your daily Calorie burn rate, and plan from there.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Kind of why I want to get back to a dietitian. So we can lay a plan out.

    Because honestly, I'm looking at that left, and at that middle, and thinking NEVER AGAIN.

    In the middle picture... oh, my health took a nose dive. I became incredibly weak, was nothing more than skin/bones/organs, became severely anemic, and I was taking naps while driving. It got THAT bad.

    There are two things recommended for weight maintenance that rang a few alarm bells in my head:

    1. Weigh myself daily. NO. A scale in the house just leads to me stepping on it 17 times a day... becoming obsessed with that number.

    2. Calorie counting. It worked well for weight loss, yes, but when I can't enjoy a recipe without knowing how many calories it has....

    And I've decided to go ahead and write a book about my struggle with my weight, from morbid obesity to anorexia to finding balance. But it will be a memoir, not a how-to.

    My doctor's office is recommending me to a nutrition specialist, someone who will set me on a plan for maintenance. It is about time.
