I weighed 298 pounds this morning! Polly checked the scale to make sure I was reading it correctly! I am including pictures as promised (0ne in this blog and one below). My journey has seen some ups and downs to this point, but the positives far outweigh the negatives.
All-in-all I had a successful weekend. I was able to maintain my weight while on a road trip and out of my routine. The staff at Clear Creek Ranch (clearcreekranch.com) were very helpful with my Atkins plan, especially Mike (cook, chef, omelet specialist) and the other people that prepared our meals. I thank them for helping to keep me on track.
I had a great birthday yesterday. I worked at Starbucks in the morning researching Personal Training Certifications and registering for a training and future test. I shopped at, yes, COSTCO for our favorite deals and followed that up with a good workout. Polly and I attended a Tocqueville Society (Trident United Way) event to view some classic cars. I did not indulge in the wonderful food, but thoroughly enjoyed the company and atmosphere. Our local United Way has a good combination of strong staff and committed volunteers.
I am overjoyed with my progress to this point. As some of you know, I had planned to have a 40 pound weight loss by yesterday, so being down 53 this morning is more than a pleasant surprise. Thanks to family and friends for your support!
Loving Life Always,
