So, it’s been two weeks since I last got weighed. I’m going to do it like this from now on, unless something catastrophic happens, like not being able to stand for 5 minutes without my hip hurting. Then I’ll get weighed and make sure it’s not my weight going up that’s the problem.
But anyway! Onto the weigh-in.
I had to drop my repeat prescription off at the Doctor’s anyway, so while I was up, I nipped into Boots. This was the plan all along, really, and the repeat prescription was an excuse to go up there, instead of just saying, “I want to get weighed.”
So, prescription handed in, I made my way up to Boots – it’s next door, so it’s easy access. Stood on the scale, put my 20p in the slot, and watched as the scales showed:
265lbs (120.20kg) to go
For those of you playing along at home without calculators, that comes in at 410lbs (185.9kg).
And since last time I got weighed, I weighed 414lbs, that puts my weightloss at 4lbs since January 21st, 2010.
Now, I’m not going to gurn and complain about “only” losing 2lbs a week. I know I lost more at Weight Watchers, but I’m not doing Weight Watchers. I’m doing SparkPeople.
So 4lbs down and another 270 or so to go. It’s going to be a long road.
What was it Lao Tzu said? “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”?
Consider these my first tentative steps. I’m sick of the old path, the old failures, so I’m not continuing in my old footsteps, but starting new ones.
