It’s Weigh Day!

By Wyatt Earp | December 20, 2008

cbgWell, last week sucked. I ballooned up 2.5 pounds to a whopping 198. I was so depressed that I ate an entire pizza topped with Butterfingers all by myself.

Okay, not really, but I wasn’t happy with myself at all. The weather hampered my walking, but I did manage to do a couple of three-mile strolls last week. It must have helped a little, because I am down a pound this week. As of this morning’s weigh-in, I am at 197 pounds.

That’s down 39 pounds since January 1st. I still want to get below 190 - and, optimally, below 185 - but that may happen once I get skating again. My new ice skates came yesterday - and they kick ass - and I expect to get on the ice both Monday and Tuesday. I need to be in hockey shape for our first game back from Christmas break (January 4th).

So again, I’m down a pound, still a little frustrated, but hopeful for the future. I suspect the others are hopeful as well.

    Congrats, maybe now you will stop kicking yourself. Save that for the professionals.(women)

    Timmeehh - Let me say this: Sometimes it’s good to be a cop. :)

    E.L. - I walked three miles today, and the temperature outside was 26 degrees. It was tough, since I was feeling frostbite coming on, but I did it.

    Christmas will be a bear. Mom-in-Law is making her famous lasagna. YUMMAY!

    mmmmm lasagna!

    One helping. Just one helping! (At a time)

    Good for you on the loss. Let you know tomorrow how I did.

    I believe I was 185 back in 8th grade. In 1963.

    It’s amazing how getting back on the wagon returns results.

    I get cocky when I lose a few pounds then start thinking a little of this and a little of that is ok. If I don’t get back on the wagon right away it’s lights out!

    Well done.

    Cut yourself a little slack, especially during this time of year. I’m eating like a little piggie and loving it, feeling my arse get wider and wider with every CSI episode I watch.

    Good times…gooooood times!

    Joated - I’ll probably try to skate just beofre dinner to speed up the metabolism. Heh.

    Mare - Thanks. Gotta work harder, but I’m trying. And again, any time at the rink will help matters greatly.

    RT - Baby steps, right?

    GroovyVic - It’s not my arse - that’s like an apple - it’s my stomach, which needs to get smaller. :)

    At least you are starting now until waiting for 48 and then being told “Do it or Die” and then you end up dying from trying.

    [...] other positive news, Wyatt has lost a pound this week, and I can once again wear my black, double-breasted cashmere sport [...]

    Admiral - Well, I’m 39 and I expect to be playing hockey for another 11 years. I’ll think about hanging up the skates when I’m 50.

    I dropped three pounds this week, due to HORRIBLE VIOLENT ILLNESS. I don’t recommend that. You’re doing it right. If I don’t stop catching stomach bugs, I’m gonna drop to double-digits.
