Quick aside: Back around the time my daughter Liz was born in 1997 I was about 260 pounds. For the next seven years I would only gain weight because of near-constant eating to stay awake while suffering from untreated sleep apnea, combined with bad habits and lazy lifestyle ... well, I got way-big, way-unhealthy. Since then, the lowest/best weight I've achieved was 265 lb. a few years ago. Well, this is what the scale said this morning:
Weekly Loss: 7.4 lb.
Total Loss Since 1/25/2014: 13.0 lb.
So if I lose even one pound over the next week, I will have tied for the best weight I've had since sometime in the late 90s! It's my first major milestone on this road to better health and self-confidence. I'm excited to blaze past it and into awesome uncharted territory.
Thanks for the love and support, everyone. It all keeps me going!
