I must admit that I’m pretty stoked right now. Crossing the thirty pound threshold is huge! I’m really glad that I put in for a loss this week and maintained under 300 because it was momentarily not looking good Friday.
We went to Cafe Soriah that night and even though I did well in ordering flank steak (yummy!) and staying away from the buttery mounds of goodness that they call mashed potatoes, I was still looking at close to (and possibly over) 300 Saturday morning. I got my walk in, though, played a nice leisurely round of pitch and putt golf at the BLSA Golf Scramble Tournament, and played a good round of basketball at the gym. And by play I mean we were just shooting around, although we did play a game of 1-on-1 at the end where I lost. It felt good to drive to the hoop, though, since I really haven’t played any basketball since my knee injury in 2005. So working hard yesterday combined with a walk this morning equaled a good payoff.
That’s one of the reasons I’m so glad I’m doing this. Normally I wouldn’t have worried and just gone on my merry way thinking that I’d make it up next week. But because I publicly post this each week I’m shamed into working my ass off Saturday if I know my results aren’t going to be good. If this is how I have to make each step forward towards my goal then that’s how it’s going to be.
