We'll make this short and sweet. I was on track to make my 20 pound goal, but then I traveled to Kentucky to conduct some business and help out one of my best friends — the amazing Lindsay Archer — at an art showing at a games and comics store. This weekend involved two steak & martini dinners, and I'm fairly certain I overdid a bit. (Mmm ... baked sweet potato ...) Still, I still lost for the week and I'm really close!
Weekly Loss: 1.4 lb.
Total Loss Since 8/17/2015: 19.6 lb.
I'm less than half a pound from the first major milestone of twenty pounds of lard erased. This is GOING TO HAPPEN this week. I'll see you when it does!
Working off a few pounds is good and important and all that ... but when you can honestly declare "I've lost twenty pounds" that you feel like you've really accomplished something. Twenty pounds makes a difference in how you feel and look. And I'm soooo close, you guys. In fact, I would probably have made it but I indulged this weekend with some mini-anniversary celebrating with my lady-love. A cocktail, Cajun dinner, and even dessert! No regrets. I still made progress for the week!

This does represent the least amount of weekly weight lost, but once again: crawfish bread and pumpkin bread pudding. SO GOOD. But I'm going to try and do better this week. I want to be able to announce I hit the 20 lb. milestone!
Still working at it, some days I'm better than others, but I'm keeping track of what I'm eating and slowly working my way there.
Weekly Loss: 1.8 lb.
Total Loss Since 8/17/2015: 16.8 lb.
The bad news is that's the least amount I've lost in a week since I started working at weight loss again. But the GOOD news is that I'm still going in the right direction and I came within spitting distance of my 2 pounds per week goal. And the extra good news is that based on that two pounds per week lost average, I'm still about five pounds ahead of where I wanted to be at this time. Keep me strong, Internet—this is the month of pumpkin bread and trick or treat candy!
