2012 - Week Five: Oh yeah, I'm doing this!

Forgive me, Internet, for I have sinned. It has been four weeks since my last weight update. I could tell you that my birthday gave me an excuse to ignore sensible eating and drinking, or that I've been distracted by all kinds of crazy-exciting professional things going on my life. But that's no excuse and we both know. I mean to do this, dammit, and I'm going to do it.

Here I am. Back to weekly updates and back to my naked-on-the-scale Monday morning weigh-ins. (And you're welcome for that image.) Here is where we are:

260.2 lb.
Since Last Weigh-In: 3.0 lb.

So that's good! I'm at least moving in the right direction in the past month, even if it's not nearly as far as I should be after this many weeks into the new year. Keep me going, people. My goal weight is 225 lb. and I mean to get there by mid-summer. Thanks for your friendship and support!

2012 - Week One: Day One

It's a new year. I'm starting over. I did good last year, though I slipped a bit once I got to the holidays. I'm ignoring it all. Today is Day One. I'm starting weekly tracking and watching my intake and activity all as if this were brand new. Long-term, I want to get down to 225 lb. My first short-term milestone is to lose the first five pounds.

Here's what the scale reported this morning:

263.2 lb.

Happy New Year, folks! See you next week.
