The lowest weight of the year, and technically a match for my last pre-holiday weigh-in. Also, a mere one pound above my all-time low. Needless to say, I’m pleased. My next goal is to see 173.4 (a 20 pound loss) by the time we head to the beach in August. I know, I know … that’s a long way out, which is what I’m planning for. Honestly, if I can just get a little lower this year than I was last year, I’ll be really happy. So, let’s start with an additional 5 pound goal and see where that leads. If it ends up being more, great! If not, 5 pounds is still 5 pounds less than I weighed in 2009, so there you go.
All that said, this weekend is going to present a challenge for keeping this particular weight for very long … tonight, we’re eating out for Will’s birthday, and then tomorrow is an Easter egg hunt and a trip to the hair salon, which means lunch out. Sunday is Easter, and there is candy in the house, because I could never deprive my son of that fun. Monday is Liam’s birthday, so that’ll be more cake, and then the following Saturday is Liam’s birthday party. Yeah … it might be a couple weeks before I see 179 again. Guess I’ll be running my little ass off over the next two weeks!!
