My goal was 175 by the end of August and I blew that way by a pound and two weeks. As of Wednesday I weighed 174, a 3.5lb loss, the biggest 1 week loss yet. Not sure what caused it, though I was more disciplined than usual over the weekend. I could use a couple […]Read more "Fitness Friday: Milestone"
Today I weigh 177.8 lbs. The day I began the diet I weighed 207.9, which means I have lost 30 lbs in 19 weeks. I am also 2 lbs away from my current goal of 175, which I will likely attain in ten days or so. After I reach 175 I will just take it […]Read more "Fitness Friday: Thoughts on motivation."
Today I weigh 179.2lbs, down 1.4 from last week, which is about average. I am just barely on track for my goal of 175 by the end of August. Wait and see. Even though it is hot and humid I have gotten sick of so little exercise. So I decided to get a 16kg […]Read more "Friday Health Updates"

One habit I have been learning is to only eat when hungry and – get this – stop eating when full. Radical concept. Maybe next Friday I’ll have a whole post on the […]Read more "Friday Update"
Today after 15 weeks of dieting I weigh 183lbs, down 1.5 lbs from last week, and 8lbs from my current goal of 175. When I get to 182 (hopefully next week) I will take myself out for dinner since that will be the -25lb mark. 25lbs in 16 weeks averages out to a little more […]Read more "Friday Health Update"
New weight: 184.6lbs, down from 186.4, a difference of 1.8lbs in spite of a 4th of July celebration that included sugary mixed drinks, chips, and a slice of cake on top of a few pounds of buttered lobster and clams. My belly now has the same diameter as my waist, just under 36″. I am […]Read more "Friday Health Post: Growing Optimism"
