==This Week
Ate out once (Lunch Wednesday). Have been drinking 1-2 gallons a week of water per day for the past several weeks.

Exercise has been stagnant but consistent. We really are playing the "good diet trumps exercise when losing weight" card. Fortunately we're winning the game. The numbers over the past 4 weeks say as much..

Last Week: 197.8@22%
This Week: 196.8@21% (Down 1 pound and 1%)

Yes, I am less than 2 pounds from my goal weight. It's becoming real to me now.

==SONG (196.8 > 1996-Aug)
If I get nothing out of this song-for-weight journey, I finally realized why pop-music has annoyed me so much for the past 3 years. It's been like the mid 1990's were. A lot of faux-angst/anger for image sake. They were better in that they were a little more organic and a LOT less corporate than now, but yeah.

I legit liked this song, even if the singer was competing with Jewel for most annoying vocal technique and Alanis Morissette for most angsty/grunge-ey (and honestly I hadn't lived enough life to get the lyrics).

If you've never heard it, believe me you're not alone.

I thought by now the weight loss would have started to slow to the 0.4 - 0.6 per week usual as it traditionally has at my current weight. It hasn't. I really believe that I will be at 195.0 or below within the next two months and likely sooner.

Given the foot, I'm going to start upping the time and intensity of the cardio without upping the impact. I will also start adding pounds and/or reps to the strength routines.

I don't have the pounds left to lose to have an impact on my body fat ratio, so it's time to slowly switch focus.

Stay tuned,

TD Out!

    What the WHAT!?!?
    WHOOOOO! Someone’s winning in this flipping HARD weight war! And it’s You Babe, YOUUUUU!!!
    So happy for you!
    That’s so great. And on a holiday weekend too. You know, when it’s technically impossible to succeed at anything -except getting a mattress on discount, right? Well, and maybe a pair of skis...

    See why the compliment was so well deserved about your weigh in?!? : )

    Hey Spanky, have a great weekend! (I just thought of that nickname for you)

    I knew you could leave the pounds somewhere along the way...

    I love the song, but IMHO it sounds a lot better without the vid. Close your eyes to get the gist.. much better.

    Congrats on the (no pun intended) skinny!
