A Little Off Track

Thursday, September 18th 2014

OK, this is an excuse not a reason. There is no valid reason for eating a bacon double cheeseburger with fries for lunch yesterday but it sure tasted good. Couple that with some other intentional indiscretions and the end result will most likely be a negative loss for the week. Notice the choice of workd. It is still a weight loss, just a negative weight loss. I know it is the same thing as gaining but at least is sounds better - a little positive window dressing on what is otherwise a negati...

Another Goal - CRUSHED!!!

Saturday, September 6th 2014

I am doing the HAPPY DANCE!!! I broke 300 today, not only broke, but CRUSHED. Tipped in at 296, which also takes me past 10% from my starting weight. Killed two goals with one stone. I am MOTIVATED today. My next goal is 279. I have no idea why it is 279, it just is. This is the number that moves me from Silver to Gold. I want to hit this new goal by Halloween. :rolling1:
