I was sick and lost a good amount, then I was having dental issues and eating very unhealthy and gained it all back plus some and then I got sick again (due to dental issues) and lost again.
The net sum of it all?
Well - One month ago I took this Picture.
As a refresher - my weight for all intents and purposes of this blog is a 1st thing in the morning (when I wake up I consider that to be morning no matter how late in the day it might actually be) before I've gone and put a whole lot of stuff into me and without a whole lot of clothes on. For my purposes I'm more interested in my natural weight currently. Why? Because it's less and makes me feel better and when I saw that I was over 300 pounds that's what I was wearing at the time as well - Not A Bloody Thing!
My "Weight Watchers" weight is significantly different because that happens at 6pm at night fully clothed. I've been eating all day long and got stuff weighing me down.
This morning I took this picture.
The second thing you should notice is that in the past month I've lost nearly 6 pounds.
Starting at 303 I've now dropped 70 pounds.
I'm now 13.4 pounds away from my goal of 220 that I set when I began this whole journey. Looks like I'll be hitting that before Summer and I'm pretty stoked about it.
Funny thing is that as I near my goal I still look at myself and say "Man, you're still a big fat tub of lard with a lot of progress left to go."
It's true, it's true. So, as I inch closer to my first goal of 220 it does appear as though I'll set my next goal a bit lower instead of just being willing to maintain there. I'm still not satisfied with what I see when I look at myself and in my mind I'm still that fat 280 pound bastard that I've been for the last decade.
Progress, it's what's for Dinner!
