Weighed in at 199 again this week. Two weeks in a row. My scale measures down to the 1/10 of a pound and I was up a half pound from last week, but it was still in the 199 range, so 199 it is. In the last two weeks, I'm up 1.0 pounds. If I stuck to my "fries no more than once a week" rule, I probably would have seen a better number, but I'm not complaining. Three weeks in a row below 200. Yay me.
I had Ken take a couple pictures of me today. I've been using a particular picture as motivation for me to keep from being a big fatty again. It was taken at the beginning of my diet. Once I lost the first 50 pounds, I had Ken take a picture of me in the same shirt. Now that I've just passed the 100 pound mark, it was time for an update. So first, here's the original before and after:
Now it's a picture from this morning:
Now I know what you must be saying to yourself... "That shirt looks the same, but it looks like it fits. Did he run out and buy a new one in a smaller size?" Well, the answer is no. I just had the shirt pinned in the back so it didn't look enormous on me. See the next picture please.
It's a little big on me now, I think you would agree.
We went out for a drive this afternoon. I didn't feel like being cooped up all day at home (which is really unlike me.) I brought the camera and intended on taking a lot of pictures, but I didn't really take too many. I'm just going to post one or two more of me, because, well, it's my blog and I'm adorable. Here's me in the car with a stick o' carb.
And then, finally, a picture of me and Carol. We stopped by where she's working to say "hey."
Now I'm about to cook start dinner. A listener of the podcast sent in his recipe for Mac N' Cheese and I'm going to make that. I haven't had Mac N' Cheese in longer than I can remember, so it's going to be my treat to myself.
