My Goal – Part 3

Week three of posting my progress towards my weight loss goal.  As I said last week, this might be the most difficult and irritating thing that I’ve ever done.  Much of the difficulty comes from being unable to see immediate results.  That said, yesterday I was pleasantly surprised when one of my neighbors said that I looked like I was losing weight.  So while I may not be able to notice much of a difference, apparently it’s getting to the point where other people can tell.

All that being said, this past week was a bit of a rough week for my goal.  I posted on here early Wednesday morning that Tuesday night I went to go see Jimmy Buffett in concert, which meant that the night included quite a few margaritas as well as eating more that day than I have been.  While I only post my progress on here on Sundays, I do check my weight throughout the week, and this week I thought that I would be in pretty much the same spot I was last week, if not a little higher, which I would have been ok with.  For me a valuable part of trying this is to allow myself to cheat a little on what I eat, usually once a week I’ll go out for ice cream or some other form of desert.  I knew I was going to see Buffett so I made sure that that was my day to go overboard a little bit.

All in all, I was a little surprised and quite pleased as I checked my weight before my post today.  So here we go with the update and progress check:

7/10 – 231.2

7/17 – 225.6

7/24 – 224.0
