200

...or "Two century club"

...or "longest 8 lbs ever!"

My long running weight loss campaign has hit another milestone today with the scale telling me I'd reached 215 lbs, 200.2 lbs down from where I'd started back in May of 2006.

Believe it or not... I don't mind it taking ~2 years to reach this milestone. I mind the fact that 3 months to lose the last 8 lbs to bring me to this point from the 2 year in blog post back in May.

Why'd it take so long? Two reasons I see... first and foremost is that my body has now caught on to what I'm trying to do to it and where it is actively fighting back against me. Coupled with the fact that I keep having people putting good food in my face at work and me not always saying no... things have slowed pretty good.

It's all good though... 200 down... 20 to go and yet another reminder I REALLY need to get into the gym and use the free membership I've got more than I have (twice in 4 months).

  • Slow is better than fast. Remember Oprah's attempts at quick fix weight-loss plans?. And losing "only" 8 pounds when you have unlimited access to great food for free is not a setback.

  • I think you are doing a brilliant job!
    To achieve what you have takes more will power than the majority of people could ever hope for.

    Good luck,

    Colin
