Weight: 289 – Pounds left to lose: 129

Woah, a 6 pound drop this week, without even exercising. Again, my freaking period makes my weight loss seem bigger than it probably actually was. I’ve been recording my weight every week in a program called “Fit Day” which graphs the data for me and you can see the humps every month when I’m menstruating. It’s so weird.

I can’t help but think back to that NBC show that was on a couple months ago, “The Biggest Loser” in which people competed to see who could lose the most weight. I can see now the women had a big disadvantage as well as advantage. The week they were on their period, they would appear to lose less weight than they had – disadvantage. However, if they were able to get through that week, the next week they’d appear to lose more than they had – definite advantage.

I’m going to start walking again today and hope my knee can handle it. It’s nice to know I can lose weight just on the diet, though I’m guessing that as I approach my goal weight the exercise will become more and more necessary to achieve any loss.

Just a summary, I’ve now lost 83 pounds. I’m 23 pounds away from the halfway point of my loss, which I’ll probably hit around the end of August, beginning of September.

I hit the 289 range today – 289.6. I cannot believe I am less than 20 lbs away from being 100 lbs lighter. And once again, I owe it all to you and your incredible journey. I should hit that mark around the end of January. It is soclose I can taste it. And it tastes better than any of the crappy food I used to wolf down by the barrel full.
