Happy Mother’s Day! Make sure to do something special for your mom today.

Still going strong.  I only made it to the gym twice last week, but I think my hard work still showed off.  Yes, I only lost 1.2 lbs. from my weigh-in last Saturday, however that does not tell the whole picture.  After Saturday’s festivities I clocked in at about 297 lbs. Sunday morning, so getting back down to a loss for this week was pretty damn good in my book!  If I work as hard this week maybe I can get to under 290 lbs. before I leave for sunny California for the summer.  I’ll most likely weigh-in super early next Sunday since I will have a long drive down I-5 ahead of me.

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.
