I never liked the term “old skool“! But…..
Today I am kickin‘ it “old skool” Yeaaahhhh Booooyyyyyyy!!!!
For the first time in a month, I was able to go to my regular weigh in on Monday morning.
So lets start from the top.
I woke up today with the dog-a-barking!
When I went to pick her up, she looked at me and said:
“You know father, it is an amazing thing. A year ago, you would eat BBQ ribs. Now, I can feel your ribs when you hold me. Simply amazing!”
I told her I was not in the mood for her commentary this morning!
After walking her, it was off to the gym. Because it was a very busy weekend, I was not able to go for the last two days, so I was pumped today!
I got on the elliptical, and was working out next to “male model” and a new character:
“I-Pod Deluxe” had the biggest I-Pod strapped on her arm. It was HUGE! It must have help like 2000 gig of music!
Carrying that seemed like a workout in itself.
After 65 minutes of great cardio, I hit the weights for about 30 minutes, and then left.
After taking a shower, it was off to my Weight Watchers meeting!
I really never talk about this, but the one thing I love about WW is that I only weight myself once a week. It is one of the best habits I have learned! On other diets, I would go CRAZY weighing myself every day. I would know how much a pair of pants would weigh, the difference of my weight with shoes or without, etc.
What it also did was upset me a lot. I would be confused why I would have gained a pound one day, and lose two the next! It was not healthy.
So once a week is the lifestyle for me!
I walked in to WW, and Barb was super excited to see me!
I was excited as well!
I have not seen her in a month. She did say that she has been asking about me, and checking my progress on the computer!
That made me feel real good!
“Well Tony! I am ready when you are!”
Before I go on the scale, I always think about my week! I always see if I could have done something different or better.
Believe it or not, I am a perfectionist. I will never say my weight loss is easy. That would make me look like a fool! It take so much work and dedication. It is fun now, but it still takes a lot of determination!
But I never fear the scale!Not anymore. Not with my work ethic!
So I hopped on, and I lost 3.8 pounds this week!
3.8 pounds, WOW!!! I guess the plateau was off for President’s Day!!!
Barb said “Tony, I am so proud of you!”
I smiled. After losing 217.4 pounds, I guess I am a little proud of myself as well!
