0 (∆ -0.6) || 21.8%

September 9, 2009

Yeah!! I did it: I lost it all. (Pic to come.) This is the end of a long journey, and I’m sort of shocked I really lost all the weight I set out to—a total of 33.5 pounds since January 19th. I overshot of my original target deadline by two and a half weeks, but [...]

+0.6 (∆ -1.2)

September 1, 2009

It took some extra effort in the last stretch, but I finally dipped under 160 lbs., which technically makes me 25.0 BMI and thus… Normal Weight! Woo hoo! I should go celebrate by binge drinking all night… or maybe not? Heh heh. As far as I can tell, since weight can be either muscle or [...]

+1.8 (∆ +0.4)

August 21, 2009

Well, the day is finally here—the end of my seven month plan to lose weight—and I can unequivocally say it’s been a success. Not only am I celebrating my birthday, but I’m literally lighter than I’ve been in years. Huzzah! If you’ve been with me since the beginning, then you already know I was over [...]

+1.4 (∆ -4)

August 19, 2009

I’ve lost four pounds in 24 hours. I wish that were a joke, but it’s not. Oddly, those four pounds weren’t my body’s actual weight, but that excess slough which fluctuates one’s weight from day to day. This sort of sudden ebb and flow ought to perfectly illustrate the insanity of putting too much importance [...]

+5.4 (∆ +3.4)

August 18, 2009

Got back from Waterford Watsonville last night. Walks on the beach, kite-flying, Pixar flicks (Cars, Monsters Inc.) whilst cooking, delicious dinners, cold beers, 2 hour naps, and about 90 minutes a day of kid-free time. Sadly, our vacation highlight was going to bed at 9:30 every night. I also have three days before this weight [...]

on holiday. typing from computer that has no double-u key, shift key, or the at symbol. makes surfing kind of hard. despite being surrounded by opportunities to binge, happily i have friends that eat sensibly. 2 beers max are feasible under the calories i’m consuming. hoping to still hit my goal by my birthday…

+3.2 (∆ -0.4)

August 5, 2009

And dropping… As I creep closer to my goal weight, every drop in weight is another record. Based on what I ate yesterday, I’m not surprised that I’ve lost some poundage: Breakfast: 1 small bowl of grape nuts with soy milk—375 calories Lunch: 1 (leftover) serving of pasta with seafood, broccoli, zucchini and Parmesan cheese—500 [...]

+3.6 (∆ -1.6)

August 4, 2009

Well, I’m officially my lowest weight in a decade. I couldn’t possible say how happy that makes me. Accomplishing something as… well, something as “simple” as losing weight fills me with a renewed sense of self in everything I do. Based on how many years I’ve been trying to lose weight, it’s obviously not simple, [...]

July 16, 2009

Last night was game night, by which I mean Counter-Strike. I was first introduced to Counter-Strike in 2000 and have been playing every Wednesday with the same group ever since. We used to meet up and play after business hours but now we’ve evolved to play remotely via Steam. One staple of CS night is [...]
