The Internet tells me that it’s exactly 200 days since my last blog post, so once again it’s clear that my posting regularity is improving all the time. 466, then 243, and now just 200 days between posts. Ten posts in two-and-a-half years, so I’m totally crushing this blogging thing!
My weight, as of this past Saturday, is 172.6 kg (380.5 lb), so I’m up 2.7 kg (5.9 lb) since my last post. My weight has fluctuated between 188.3 kg (415.1 lb) and 171.8 kg (378.7 lb), but I haven’t gotten back below 170 kg (374.8 lb) at any point. I plan to get there in the next week or two. Even though I haven’t been blogging, I have been going to meetings and putting in effort and losing fairly regularly for the last two-and-a-half months. COVID shut the meetings down the week after my last post, and I tried the Zoom meetings, but didn’t really find them very helpful. I slowly fell into bad habits again, eating a lot of really unhealthy snacks and barely moving. That went on, getting steadily worse, for nearly four months when my family staged a sort of intervention.
I promised to make a serious, sustained effort and they promised to support me and help however they could. The boys have taken over the family cooking, so I only have to cook meals for myself now. If their dinner menu is too tempting, I stay away until they’ve finished, then cook my meal afterwards. And for the most part, they’ve gotten all their junk food out of the house. Or at least they hide it and eat it when I’m not around. And occasionally they go out for meals and I stay home. All of which is helping. I’ve lost 16.5 kg (36.4) in 8 weeks, although last week I did a bit of back-sliding and gained 0.8 kg (1.8 lb), so I’ve been making an extra effort this week to get back on track.
