Over on the right side of this blog, if you read it in a browser on a desktop or laptop computer, is a WordPress widget with the title “Where I’m At”. It’s something I’ve mostly forgotten about, since I’ve been writing these updates on my phone and the iPhone browser doesn’t show it. As a result, it was last updated on August 17, 2017. It is, needless to say, out of date.
Still, I should be checking i more regularly on my weight. I mean, sure, this blog is about my efforts to improve my health and get into shape, and I need to focus on that and stay positive. But, being realistic, weight loss is part of improving my health. I weighed 420 pounds when I starts, after all, and I really should weigh around 220 to be at my optimal weight.
(Yes, if you’re reading this Dr. Allnut, I know you said I should be at 200. But like I said, we can bicker about those last 20 pounds when I’ve lost almost half my body weight. 😁. But I digress.)
So, I was at 336.2 pounds on February 25. Two weeks later, after struggling to get all of my exercises in on schedule and struggling o stay within my calorie budget, I weigh… drumroll please… 330.1.
So I’ve still got a ways to go before I get back to where I was in August of 2017. And I’ve got 110.1 pounds to go to hit my target weight. But – and this is the important part – I’m making progress once more!
Yes, I know that health is a journey and not a destination. But damn it feels good to be losing a little weight once more!
Now to keep it up!
