Weigh-In Results

So It's been a while since I actually wrote a weigh-in post on a Monday so that's a victory.  Two years ago today, Claire and I got married.  Two years ago we looked like this.

Today, we look like this:

This picture makes me giggle.  Anyway, it feels good to be thinner.  I've still got a long way to go.  I'm sure I'll live longer based on the weight I've lost so far, but I want to be around Claire and that drag queen for as long as possible so I need to turn it up and get to a healthy weight.

Here's how much I weigh this week.
I gained a pound.  Gross.  All I can say is if all goes according to plan, I'll be taking it and a lot more off this week.

Yesterday I said I was going to bike a marathon every day this week.  I did not disappoint today.  I biked a total of 27.5 miles.  That's the farthest I've biked in recent history.  Here's the map:

I doubled around the lakes and decided to cross the mighty Mississippi into St. Paul today.  According to the Daily Plate, I burned 2,811 calories on my ride.  That makes me feel better about my mini-binge when I got home where I took in 600 calories of cottage cheese, fiber one bars, almonds, and a mini-ice cream Snickers bar.  I gotta get that under control.

So Claire, happy anniversary.  Over the last two years, you've given me the strength to make myself a better man.  You've challenged me when I've needed it most.  And you've made me incredibly happy since the day I met you.  I've got 47.6 pounds to go before I reach my goal.  With you by my side, I know I'll be able to do it.
