Week 34: Back on the Wagon!

Current Weight:  217.6
+/-  this week:  -2.0
+/- this round:   -32.2
+/- total:    -49.6
Current Short Term Goal:  217 (50 pounds lighter)

I finally made it in to town to a meeting after being back on the wagon for a week - counted points for everything I ate and even got a little activity.  It's been a while, but I realized if I want to reach my birthday goal of being under 200 lbs on Nov 23, I needed to start getting serious again.

I was pleased at the scales today - two pounds gone and I'm less than 1/2 a pound away from being down a total of 50 pounds.  Lately everything has been changing, and I am feeling proud of myself for the weight I've already lost.  I often just think about how much is left to go, but the reality is that 50 lbs is nothing to sneer at, is it?

I was talking to some ladies in my book club about running and how I would like to try running, but I don't like how it feels.  They recommended getting some compression gear so I could run with less... movement... I might look into that.  I feel like I would like to do Couch to 5K, so maybe when I get a job I'll invest in some gear and some good shoes.

Well, I am going to sneak in a quick workout before I go over and pick up the boys from my Mom's house.
