Weigh-In Results

It's Monday!  This week I've been counting calories like no one's business using Fat Secret's Calorie Counter app for Android.  I lapsed a little yesterday, but not too badly.

I had a pretty epic bike ride in to work this morning.  For those of you who don't live in Minnesota, we had a pretty major snowstorm this weekend.  The ride was actually pretty easy with the exception of a bike bridge that hadn't been plowed and a patch of black ice.  Don't worry, all I suffered was a slightly bruised hip.  Note to self: If there's a puddle in the winter, don't automatically assume the wet ground next to it is also made of liquid water.  I don't think it will be long before I get the hang of this winter biking thing.

Alright.  Let's see how fat I am.

YES!!!  Counting calories is definitely the way to go!  I lost 3.9 pounds this week and this is the lightest I've been on my journey.  I'm only 8.7 pounds away from seeing the 220s.  I'm hoping to get there before the new year.  I've got a lot standing in my way; Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, etc. but I feel like this is the first reproducible loss in a long time.  Next week's weigh-in is going to be great!
This week's winner is Jill Dupuis with a guess of 237.5.  Only off by 1.1 pounds.  Though you flatter me by guessing lower.  Congrats Jill!  And although I'm not allowed to give you just the bacon from the chocolate covered bacon prize, I can give you bacon covered chocolate.  Enjoy!
