On January 1st I weighed 204.4. On January 2 my mother passed away. On January 4 and the days following family members began arriving. There were more meals eaten in restaurants. After the funeral dinner the relatives brought several pizzas into the house. I was not strong enough to "just say no." On January 2 I weighed 206 and on January 11 I had zoomed up to 211. It took me a couple of weeks to recover from the gain and the I hovered in the 204s for weeks.
I had high hopes of weighing 195 by December 31, 2009 and now almost 4 months later I have finally reached 200.
Losing weight is a full-time job. I count calories. I exercise AT LEAST 6 days a week at a gym, or walking, or with an exercise DVD.
So today is a milestone. I hope by April 30 to weigh 199.8.
