Waning Weight

This week is looking like I may have regained a couple of pounds. It is early in the week, but over the weekend my weight had gone up more than the “normal” daily fluctuations. Basically I am just not sure if I will officially break the 250 barrier or not. According to the program my […]

15 Weeks!

My first impression of Designed Dinners is yummy, but maybe not for me. First off let me explain that I think the food is awesome and the idea is good. However, I am not convinced that (for me) it is 100% worth it. The idea is you go to the web site, select a number […]


I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised (I knew it could be like this on Wednesday), but given the last couple of weeks results I am still a little surprised. Happy, yet surprised. Even with my last entry opining the very thing I am focusing on I am still focusing on the single metric of my […]

In Plain Site

It is interesting how everyone focuses on the obvious (me included!). The way we look is important. So many things that humans do is related to how others perceive us. A few minutes ago a co-worker was commenting on my reduced girth. I really do love the fact that people notice my size. It is […]

Wet behind the ears

After my back fiasco earlier this week, I was told to take it easy and not push it too hard. On one hand I like the rest on the other it annoys me because I don’t want to break the pattern I have established. It would be too easy for me to fall into my […]

Back at it again

Today has been a very bad day for me. Saturday afternoon, my lower back was giving me problems. During the day on Sunday things got worse. I had hoped that by this morning I would have powered through the issue and been able to do a normal workout. Not the case. I tried doing the […]

What a difference a day can make…

Today I am in a better place than I was yesterday. I did something this morning that I am particularly happy about. Once again it is not a huge accomplishment for some, but for me it marks a milestone that has been a long time coming. Today I was able to jog a FULL mile […]

I shouldn’t try and think so much…

The club must have purchased NEW towels! How else can you explain the fact that I have no trouble at all keeping a towel wrapped around either my hips OR my waist now! The only explanation MUST be that the towels are getting bigger? I am trying to prepare myself for this week’s weigh in. […]
