Time to Get Real – Week of March 13


The week felt good but the number wasn’t what I expected.

The number didn’t go up so it was effectively I just had a “hold” week.  That’s not bad but not what I am hoping to do each week.

Last week a friend made a comment about measuring my weight loss through inches rather than pounds.  That’s a legitimate idea.  As our bodies change it’s not always a clean line with weight loss.  For example, this week felt really good despite the fact that I didn’t drop a lot of weight.  Why?  Because my clothes were decidedly looser, especially the pants.  That means my waist dimension dropped.  So I feel better about myself, which in the long run helps me maintain my discipline moving forward.

Of course it also occurred to me that when I get to goal weight these current pants will be my “fat pants”.  So the fact that these pants are looser is good but fitting into this set isn’t the goal.  It’s the next set.

So I’ll take this as a positive week.

The Goal

My resolution remains :

I want to am going to be The Guy again.  The Guy weighed 175 pounds and looked good and felt good.  And his blood pressure was good and his blood tests were good.


The next milestone is getting back below 195.  I will get there and go on.
