So we have our first weigh-in which, just for the record, is pretty well meaningless. Previous to this evening the last time I stepped on a scale would have been Christmas Day shortly after eating a massive turkey dinner. So three weeks later I've stepped on a scale again. The real test will be to see how I'm doing next week. To see if I keep up with the gym and with the new food regime.
Having said that I stepped on the scale this evening and got my weight - 238 pounds. So down eight pounds. Which is certainly better than still being at 246 pounds.
Next week's goal - 237 pounds. Like I said, one pound at a time, one week at a time.
Now if you will excuse me, I must now make a sacrifice of thanks to the small alter we've created in the fridge to Karin, our patron goddess of weight loss.
