Well folks, I’m officially in the 260s! Of course, I only lost .9 pounds, but hey, it counts, and I’m proud of my progress. I weighed in at 269.6 this morning. This is the first time I’ve been in the 260s since the summer of 2012, and man does it feel good.
I struggled a lot last weekend. My cheat meal (Friday night) turned into a cheat weekend, complete with massive amounts of carbs, higher-than-normal blood glucose numbers, and a 3-pound gain on the scale. So, I played catch-up the entire week. But, I worked it all off and then some.
For those of you keeping score at home, I’m a bit behind on my plan to hit 250 by Thanksgiving. I now have fewer than 5 weeks to lose 19.6 pounds. That’s an average loss of 3.92 pounds per week. Let’s just call it an even 4. That’s a pretty tall task.
So, I need your help and encouragement! Tell me your success stories. What changes have you made that have increased your quality of life? I’m not talking just weight loss stuff here; tell me about any changes that have improved your overall health and well-being!
