Having not ventured onto our bathroom scale for months and months, I was subjected to quite a shock a week and a half ago when I weighed myself.  My mid sized, ought-to-weigh-about-155-to-160 frame was carrying around 176lbs.  Or so I thought.

When I weighed myself this past Monday morning I reenacted the scene I described a week ago – except now the scale said 180!  I did precisely the same thing I’d done before,  stepping on and off the scale several times in disbelief and utter futility. 180.  So I went out and bought a much better digital scale.  It said 180.  Sigh.

So:  here are the stats —

At the outset (let’s call it as of 12/8/08) –  180 lbs.,  BMI: 26.6

Courtesy of the new scale, my weight this morning, 12/14/08177.1 lbs., BMI 26.2; down 2.9 lbs. in one week

Goals:  drop 5 lbs. by Christmas; drop a total of 20 lbs. by April 15, 2009

As I’ve mentioned before, our diet is actually pretty good.  With me it’s a matter of not falling prey to treats/junk at work, not snacking in the evening and cutting down my fat (butter, cheese, etc.) intake.  Plus exercising more – and I’m doing a really good job of that.  I’ll post about my workout routine this week.

And now for something completely different.  I came across this this morning:  James Brown and Pavarotti in a “It’s a Man’s Man’s World” duet…..   wow!

Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!
