illegal weigh in....Major milestone...

I did it, I cracked.
I stepped on the scale after three weeks of torture.
I am glad I did. I have lost 50 lbs. 50 LBS.... I weighed in at 212. My last weigh in on September 18th was 218. So, six pounds in three weeks. Right on Track. I will still weigh in officially on October 18th. But let me just state for the record, I have now lost my eight year old. weight wise.
Wow.
I went for my three mile walk WHILE IT SNOWED ON ME. It is october people. It isn't supposed to be snowing. I want my carbon offset back. I am sure I purchased three sequoias at some point, in the hopes that My minivan didn't flood the peoples of southwest asia. Yet, here it is...snowing in October. Oh, that's right...it isn't global warming it's 'climate change'. Which means congress will tax the crap out of you While you freeze your *ss off. A government for the people, by the people...or something. Sorry, almost went all constitutional on you..
Back to the fat.
Tomorrow it's back to the gym and Christian, my precor.
Hope all is good with you and I am thinking of taking my blog in a slightly new direction. Kind of the mental aspects of weight loss and working through them. If anybody thinks this is a good idea let me know, if everybody thinks this is a craptastic idea, let me know...gently lol.
hugs,
Chris

Woo, congrats on the milestone! We are supposed to get snow here this weekend, and temps nearing zero.. gotta love south dakota i guess.

A Woo and A Hoo for the milestone. Brilliant!

As for the new direction, if you are thinking what I think you are thinking, then go for it. We ALL know how to lose weight. Eat less, move more. Simple. What most of us don't know is how we got this way and why we fight to stay. I think you've got a good handle on those kind of issues.

Happy Friday!

Congrats. And absolutely not craptastic. Hang on, I'm gonna get a bowl of popcorn (air popped, natch) and settle in for the next chapter . . .

My blog goes in a different direction all the time!
I took a friend's advice...I blog for me....not an "audience," per se. Like a personal journal.
Feedback and comments are good, and I love them too.
But like a diet itself, sometimes the secondary purposes take over and we lose sight of why we started our journey in the first place.
The only "craptastic" idea you could have would be to disobey your heart.

Congrats on the Milestone Chris!
And as for blogging, this is for you so do as you will - mine goes all over the place depending on my mindset of the week. I keep changing my mind. However if you did go with the Mental Aspects of things - that's where I'm going and I'll all with ya on that one.
