All Time High (April 1 2009): 192.2
Diet start (June 1): 189
Last Friday: 173.8
Goal: Sub 160
Was looking at a photo last night in which I was last at my goal weight. It was a few years ago, at the height of the Adkins fad, and I discovered that eating nothing but protein (well, little more than protein) was right up my alley. I was ultimately unable to sustain that weight, as I did not make the behavioral changes necessary to do so.
Thing was, that was another 15 pounds down from right now. I looked pretty damn thin at 158---but 158 was twenty pounds heavier than I was when I graduated high school! I don't remember thinking I was particularly willowy at 18, but man, the body does change over time.
Well--enough of that. What's on your mind? What's happening in your neck of the woods worth sharing with the world? Do anything fun this summer? Busy getting the kids ready for school?
I leave early tomorrow morning for my trip to the Outer Banks...I didn't make it out there last summer, and there's been a hole in my soul as a result. Charlottesville, VA and Duck/Corolla, NC are the two places where I feel almost completely at ease with the world. I'll have the computer along with me, so there should be no precipitous drop in production here on the CW. I'll probably do an "on-location" video too.
One final note: In the comment section of the post on the Lockerbie Terrorist release, I asked Greg Dail to retract a statement he made about the President or source it. I hope he does one or the other, as Greg is a welcome, regular reader and commenter here, one with strong and strongly voiced views. But please, everyone, let's continue to try and make sure that this site doesn't degenerate into something other than what it is--a place for civil discussion of politics, world events and social trends with a conservative flair.
And please, if you have an objection to what I've said, voice it here in the BFFFFA.
