I haven’t forgotten about you all!

Its just been very busy.
There was rookie, then vacation, and now mad scrambling at work while people figure out what is going on.

Since I don’t have a big update you will have to live with this.
Before vacation we did a swim challenge then a splash n dash

Status update: Weight so far

I wish I could remember how hard it was to lose the weight last time I did a diet like this. Back in 2009 then in 2012 ( as you can see at the bottom of this post.)

Here is my averages over the last 7.5 weeks.


I remember I only snacked on frozen veggies and ate decently small meals. I was drinking vodka or whiskey once in a while, and keep it to a minimum. I was working out a bit more than I am now, but now I am walking 5-8 miles a day instead of weights. But I am trying to get weights in at least twice a week.

I haven’t weighed over 200 since the second week of March, and I am averaging 189.1 this week, but that’s only due to a dehydration weight low that will skew it downward. (One night I decided to drink dinner instead of eating it.)

Dumb status update is dumb. I am sure I will be better in a month. I was just hoping to be at the 185 level by the time I go on vacation in 10 days. That way I wouldn’t have to work so hard while on the cruise.

I decided to update my Weight over Jobs picture, and now its Jobs + sports + injury. I have been tracking regularly on SparkPeople for about 8 years now. You can see a few lapses in there. Enjoy visualized data.
