Checking in

Back in May, around the 23rd, I said that I’d update and mention my weight loss in about a month. I guess this is close enough. While I do weigh myself every day, I much prefer “reporting” my progress on a monthly basis. For one week this past month, I didn’t lose an ounce, that’s the first time that’s happened. But on another week, I lost a crazy, 3 pounds. It all balances out. I’m now at 211, just 11 pounds, 1 ounce away from the 190’s. Yes, I’m counting.

I’ve lost, I guess, 7 pounds in the past month, though, as it’s not really been a month-3 days shy, I am giving myself another few days :-). I think7 pounds in a month is excellent progress. I’m not really “trying”, I’m just doing the same things and letting it happen.

I’m very busy with actual life and work, which is good and normal. I’ll be updating the blog about once a week or so. That works best for me.

A recap: I’ve lost 72 pounds, I started at 41.8% BMI (this seems to change sometimes, depending on what data the Biggest Loser Club is using-not my fault) and am now at 31.2%. I’ve lost a total of 25.4% of my body weight. My ideal body weight is apparently 22% BMI.

I’ll report my weight again, somewhere around July 23. I’ll be in Michigan at that point, on a business trip with my husband. We have many, many friends there who haven’t seen me since December 10, about 2 weeks before I started losing weight. I feel a little weird about showing up there more than 70 pounds lighter. I kind of don’t want people to notice my weight loss…I just want to BE. I know, that probably doesn’t make sense. I know that for me, I usually am shocked at someone’s weight loss, but after awhile, I can’t even remember them as being bigger. I guess that will happen. It just feels odd, you know?

I hope everyone out there in diet blog-land is moving along, staying on track. I wish you good things!
