Unofficially Good News

We're headed to my brother-in-law's graduation today. As such, I'm working from home today. So when I went to the gym this morning, I didn't take my stuff to shower at the gym and therefore I didn't get to officially weigh myself.

But with all that said, I've weighed myself before with my gym clothes on and it amounts to about 2 extra pounds on the scale. I weighed 213 with my sweaty gyms clothes and basketball shoes on.

Unofficial Weight: ~211
Unofficial Difference: ~6 lbs since May 1, 2006

I was really disappointed that I didn't get an official weigh-in today because I knew today was the day I was going to break the 212 barrier. 212 lbs. was the lowest weight I was able to attain when I was running every day back in 2005.

This weekend will be a challenge. We're going to be with family (going out to eat) and we're going to Seaworld (eating out again). But the good news is that I am really motivated to stick to it. It isn't *hard* to do, but what is difficult is to remember to do the ELOO and SW. One of the most significant aspects of this diet is that it has helped me change my attitude about eating. I feel in control more that before I started this thing.

At this point, I know that the pounds can and will come off. What I'm really interested in finding out is if I can make my goal and if I can keep it off for 6 months.

Stay tuned.

PS ... I bought some Dr. Scholls Heel Pain Relief orthotics yesterday. I was feeling much better at basketball today! I don't think I'll need to stop playing ball because of the PF stuff :-)
