New low for 2011
Friday, January 28, 2011
Quick blog here for the sake of later reference. I've been struggling for the last six months, bru ... struggling is. (Don't know about ending sentences with "is?" Click the link to move into the 90's, bru.) www.youtube.com/watch?v=
For any newbies reading, my starting weight was 273 and I had lost 103 pounds (down to a low of 170) when I quit smoking. After quitting smoking it took me exactly one week to gain ten pounds and another 12 weeks to gain 12 more pounds (for a total of a 22-pound gain.) Then I started trying to control calories again ... it was MUCH harder than I thought it would be.
In my spreadsheet I post my weight and log all my calories every day so I can make graphs and check on history etc.
Anyway, last week my spreadsheet calculated that I should have had a loss of .9 pounds. Instead, I gained 2 pounds. Depressed? Yes ... but seeing as how I've been around Spark for a long time now, I was depressed but not shocked ... it happens sometimes.
This week my spreadsheet showed I should have lost 1.1 pounds but I lost 3. By my calculations, that puts me one pound behind the universe so I'm still not caught up. Too bad this blog is a low-sniveling site so I have to stop whining now.
Anyway ... posting 184 pounds is the lowest number since last July and a new low for 2011. One more pound and I get my 90-pound icon back ... ONE ... MORE ... POUND!!!
Ok, you're updated now get back to what you're really supposed to be doing.
