The Musings of a High School English teacher in Baltimore City

I don't usually pay attention to my weight. As long as I'm exercising regularly and feeling good and feeling good about myself, I figure I'm pretty healthy. I wanted to track my weight loss this summer, but my scale's battery ran out and I never bothered to replace it. Plus it's a new-fangled scale that calculates percentage fat, and I never really trust that number, and I can barely use it. So I just don't care.
I bought an analog scale. I'm up to 257. That's unbelievable to me. I've gained 55 pounds in the last five years, after losing 118 previously. I've been exercising a couple of times per week so far this school year, as I seem more busy and stressed otu than usual and can't find the time.
I will now. I'm back to morning workouts, starting tomorrow. This is absolutely ridiculous.
