Current weight: 233.4 pounds
Since last weigh-in: +0.4 pounds
As long as I don’t get too out of control during this period, I’m okay. Just got to stay reasonable, and then I can refocus once I’m done with the bar.
102 pounds lost in 2011…and still going!

Well, that sucks. I’ve had a good hiatus though, so it’s time to really jump back on the weight loss train and get in a groove again.
The girlie says that I can blame her for spending time away from the blog and weight loss activities. And while to some extent that may be accurate, the truth of the matter is that I made a conscious decision to step back for a bit. Now I’m reaping the benefits of that decision.
I kind of fell out of walking every day, but I’ve slowly started to pick it up. I need to get back into a groove, though. Over this hiatus I’ve hiked Spencer’s Butte twice and Pisgah once. One of those Spencer’s trips was just this week for the birthday of the girlie’s mom. I also got in a walk this morning and couple last week. I even marathonned last week from school down 18th all the way to Chambers. I haven’t calculated the mileage, but for those not familiar with Eugene, that’s a pretty good walk.
I might find some pics to bridge the missing gap as far as progress pics go. We shall see. Here’s to regular updating again!

After the delicious food I’ve eaten two nights in a row, first at the Aunt’s Christmas Party and then at the Firm Christmas Party, I’m just happy to be back in the 234s. This morning’s walk is thanks to that. I knew that after two Christmas parties and a week of not finals stress I probably wasn’t going to have a good weigh-in this week. So I’m happy just to have maintained last week’s position. I should be able to have a good week this week as I’m heading back to California on Wednesday and the change of scenery should give me another boost, hopefully.

Still going strong! Just four weigh-ins left on the year and less than eight pounds to lose! I am definitely on pace. After my big jump last week I figured that this week would be another toughie, but it has proven to be fairly similar to all my other recent weeks in Eugene. I worked hard and ate well for a pretty average loss. As long as it keeps going I don’t mind. I know I can put in the work. I was hovering between 236-238 all week so this weigh-in is pretty much on par with what I was expecting.
Oh, and it’s the holiday season now, so happy holidays!

Wow, just freaking wow! And just like that I am back in this game!
I had a good week, despite going out. I chose wisely on the alcohol and eating fronts, I didn’t snack, and I enjoyed eating without overindulging. All in all, the keys to a successful week on the eating front. I also, of course, was able to exercise every day which always helps. I got in a good run or walk every morning, and I put in a herculean effort on the Turkey Trot. My final time was 38:08.
I was starting to think I was going to be stuck in the 240s, so I’m really glad to have moved out of them! Onward to 100 pounds lost. I should be able to make my goal on time now, as long as I don’t get too stressed in the coming onslaught of papers and finals.
