Month 3 Summary

Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Benjamin Franklin

Weight 263.8

0C025D00-E738-4AAF-A1D6-48A2874F3752I am down 29 pounds!!!!  This is fantastic.  I have been weighing myself but ignoring it.  Remember my original goal was to lose 8.2 pounds a month.  I have surpassed that at 9.7 pounds a month.

The important thing is I’ve done all of this with diet alone. Sure I’ve worked out and walked some but not nearly enough.  Once I get on the bicycle and do daily riding things are going to make me like butter, I’ll be on a roll.

I can feel the difference too.  My clothes are fitting better and I have more energy.  I am very happy.

Now for the graphs.  The first will be the month and the other will be since January 1st.

Day 88

Maintenance is terribly important.
Manolo Blahnik

Eventually this weight loss blog will become a bicycling blog.  It is possible that the weather will improve so the plan is to spend Fridays exploring maintenance.  I don’t know that much about cycling maintenance so I plan to watch these videos over and over.

Day 87

If you’re not getting older, you’re dead.
Tom Petty

Weight loss is continuing, slow and steady.  I can feel my clothes getting looser and that is a good thing.  I continue to believe that if the weather actually improves and I can get on the bike that it will accelerate.  I believe.

Also, I spent most of the day yesterday with my mom at the hospital.  We had planned to get a CAT scan to see if her cancer was getting worse but I got a call that she had fallen and cut her nose pretty badly.  I picked her up and took her to the hospital for both the scan and stitches.

It was a brutal six hours.  Today she goes in for a blood transfusion and then chemo.

In the old days the stress and long hours would have had me eating for comfort.  Not anymore.  I am on a mission..

Day 86

Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it
Andre Gide

In case you haven’t noticed I love quotations.  If I am at poker I read quotations in between hands.  During a game I can look at hundreds.  One of these days I will index all of the quotes on this blog.  No one has mentioned them, but I like them.

Day 85: Update

Up early this morning and in my rat hole/ office / music studio.  I haven’t looked outside, just getting things done.  I go to the kitchen to get some coffee and look out the window and here is what I see.
