Weigh in results

So Andrew, where have you been for the last two weeks? Why did you miss your first weigh-in since your grandma died? Are you throwing in the towel?

To answer your first question,since I last posted, I started work again, organized a pit orchestra, left home at 7:30 am and got home between 11 and midnight most nights. I went to Wisconsin, got in a car accident (don't worry, everyone's ok), and put on four fantastic performances of The Music man.

I missed my weigh in half because of my insanely busy schedule and half because I was afraid to step on the scale last week.

And to answer your last question, hypothetical questioner, I absolutely have not thrown in the towel. I do feel as though I fell off the wagon for a couple weeks. I definitely Feel like I've chunked up a little so with reluctance I stepped on the scale this week.

Wow. I wasn't expecting a loss. I certainly don't deserve it. I'm going to take it as a gift and move forward from there. I passed my 15% of my total body weight lost since I started the blog!

I'm so excited to have my evenings back. Mostly so I can get to know my wife again. I feel like I haven't seen her in a month. I'm going to get serious about my intake. I'm going to get back to running and exercising in general. I'm planning on doing a lot of blogging a well. So wish me luck and expect great things!

  1. Andrew, great to have you back. 15% is a BIG deal. And now you can cross it off!

  2. I'm glad you're back. I've been slacking off a little as well. I've not been documenting what I've been eating and my cardio routines are starting to slide as well. Like you, I have also maintained my losses despite my indiscretions. We should consider ourselves lucky and take this opportunity to recommit to changing our lifestyles before we start moving in the wrong direction.

    I'm going to get back on it tomorrow.

    I'm going to be very disappointed if you don't hit it hard during the next couple of months. You've made a lot of progress. You need to take the momentum and run with it. I think you need to seriously consider your intake. I know I've suggested it before, but you should really try to target added sugars for a few days and see how it feels. I have a crazy sweet tooth but I've been able to do it (except recently). I believe you can too. Maybe you don't eat a lot of sugar, but it would be interesting to document it for a few days at least. You could blog about it.

  3. Welcome back. Sounds like a stressful/busy/productive time.

    Do I see a date night in the future??

  4. Hooray, you're back! It's definitely a good time to get your life back in balance, now that things have gotten a little less hectic.

    Can't wait to see how it goes!

  5. Well good luck! You've done so much already. Don't let falling off the wagon stop you from getting back on. Slow and steady will win the race! (even if it's not as steady as you want)

  6. Keep up the good work! This is one year in your life compared to many that came before; one year that will positively affect all that are to come.
