week 51

Weight: 226.6
Weekly loss: 1.6
Total weight lost: 141.8
Average Weekly Loss: 2.78

Okay gang, one week left until my first journey anniversary. I'm getting excited about this. I can't really believe that it's been a year already. It's funny, too, since I totally feel that I can do this for the rest of my life. I don't feel like I'm missing anything. I don't feel deprived. In fact, I'm actually *gasp* starting to like the running and exercising. Of course, I'm also loving the fact that I can now fit in large shirts and size 34 jeans. So, yeah, I'll be able to keep this up.

Think I can lose 1.7 pounds this week? I'd love to be heading off to Italy under 225. Of course, that'll mean weighing in on a Friday instead of Saturday, so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out.

Thinking more about my announcement for next week, I'm not sure it'll be fully fleshed out when I announce it. I just got 6 books from the library, and that will probably take me a little while to digest. So, I'll make my announcement on Friday, but then I'll be detailing it when I get back from my vacation. I'm really not tying to build up this announcement--in fact, many of you may be underwhelmed by my next stage--but I'm trying to keep you all up to date. So, yeah, don't get your hopes up!

Congratulations on your loss this week Beej. You have done amazing over the past year. Here's to a good week ahead.

Great job! Always good to see a week with a loss! Wow - nearly a year, huh? That gives me hope that I'll continue to lose. I've been at it almost five months, and my loss has certainly slowed in the past month or so.

Beej, won't your dad use the MP3 player when you get back home?

The S&S pork I made was delicious!!! My BF had it for lunch today too as I made an extra portion for him. I love the agave sweetened ketchup.
