Friday Weigh In, 3/9/07

Man, today was another squeaker! Perhaps I'm just always meant to be surprised on Weigh-In Fridays, but so long as the surprises are good ones, I can live with the mysteries.

I weighed in at 197.0 this morning, bringing the total to 15.5 pounds over 9 weeks. I am averaging 1.6666666 pounds per week. I don't really notice that much of a difference in how I look, but I can definitely tell in how my clothes fit. Jeans fresh out of the dryer are actually at their most comfortable (aside from the scorching-hot buttons). I'm getting excited about the clothes I will be able to fit into pretty soon. They will be a nice change from my usual 4-outfit rotation. The people I work with will be pleased, I'm sure.

Gotta give a shout out to Chris, too, who has lost 19 pounds. Also, she does all of the official dinner planning and counting, which is no small chore. Plus, she has spent quite a few hours finding, printing, and assembling Weight Watchers recipes into a splatter-proof cookbook/binder. Look out, World! There is no stopping this woman!

The next thing (and I say this every damned week, but I really mean it this time!) is to start exercising. Chris' typical excuse - that she has too much going on with the job search to add exercise to the mix - has passed its expiration date (yahoo!), so she has vowed to start walking. I think I will join her. Or follow her, as we can't both walk on the treadmill at the same time, and it's still four fucking degrees here, so I doubt we'll be going outside. Although, it's supposed to warm up over the weekend, so anything is possible. Even exercise.

All right, friends...I hope you all have safe and happy weekends!

Your work at the weight loss game is inspirational. Great job! I have been staying the same for quite a while, but hopefully with nice weather I'll be able to exercise more and I will start losing again.
