Happy 3rd of July!  That’s when we have our fireworks show down here in Moorpark, so we always have a little shindig to commemorate the day before the colonies declared independence from England.  Anyways… it was another good week to lose weight.  I mostly kept up with my walking schedule, and I walked twice yesterday.  I walked a shorter route this morning, and I probably won’t get out to walk again tonight considering the festivities.   My dad and I are walking a 5K tomorrow, so that should be some good exercise.  Well, I should say I’m walking it since I’m pretty sure he’s going to run it.

Alright, here’s to healthy eating on the Holiday!  Have a Happy Fourth tomorrow!

Weekly Weigh-In: Lost 3.2 pounds!

As I said last week, the gain was nothing to be worried about.  I’m back on the weight loss train.  I’ve been pretty good about walking every night.  Yesterday I was able to walk once in the morning and then again in the late afternoon.  I enjoyed a couple nights out last week, so it’s nice to see that I’m still losing.  I should note I weighed in a little later than usual, but I don’t think that had too much effect.

I’m in the mid-270s before July 4th.  It’s not inconceivable that I could hit my goal of being in the 250s before I leave California for Eugene at the end of summer.  That’s pretty exciting.

It’s kind of weird how my mood has shifted throughout this whole process.  Before I started, I used to always say that I needed to lose weight, but I just never got around to it because I didn’t have faith in myself to follow through.  At the beginning, I was very hesitant about everything, and even when I was having some nice big losses I was still weighting for the shoe to drop.  Until just recently I was still waiting for something to happen and me to revert back to my big, fat self.  But not anymore.  I’m halfway to my first goal, and I can see the end.  And the end of this is with me as a healthier, more confident, more happy with his appearance type of guy.  I’ve already gotten far on that way, and I’ve reached the point of no return.  I can see the end of the tunnel and there’s no way I’m turning around and getting back on the path of self-destruction I was on.  Fat Dave is on the way out and Healthy Dave is trying to break in.  And I must say that’s a pretty good spot to be in.

Well, bummer. I’m actually not that too bummed out about gaining this week.  I went to Seattle this weekend (which is why I’m late weighing-in) so I wasn’t able to get my regular walks and I probably didn’t eat as well as I would have at home.  It was a nice quick weekend in which I saw some good friends I don’t get to see very much.  So in that regards, it was a success.  I haven’t had a gain in awhile so I think I was due anyways.  If I gain again next week, then I’ll be worried.  Plus, I didn’t get a walk in this morning or this weekend, so that certainly contributed.  I’m still under 280 so that’s all good!

I finally cracked 50 pounds lost. Yay!  The rate of loss is steadying out a little, which is good.  I was actually expecting a gain or maintaining weigh-in this week since I’ve been losing at such a fast rate the last few weeks that it had to reverse at some point.  So I’m mildly surprised.  I’ve been a little discouraged this week because when I weigh myself in the morning I’ve been weighing the same every day, so I was prepared for no loss.  I worked extra hard yesterday as usual, throwing in a second walk, which I think made the difference.  I also went kayaking, which was tons of fun.  It was definitely a workout for my arms.

And so the losing continues. A little slowdown in the pace, but not too much. Weightwatchers is still going to yell at me. Now I’m within spitting distance of having lost 50 lbs.!!! That’s halfway through my goal, and we’re just starting the sixth month. So I’m just a tad bit ahead of schedule. I think I can manage that.
