I want to look at my weight for the last few years.
Most of this is fairy-land made up stuff. I didn’t own a scale until late October, but I wanted to fill in a full year’s worth of weight, so I guessed. You can see the weight start dropping at a pretty good clip near the end of the year. That part is real.
Through 2008 the weight loss continued nicely. I did bitch and moan at the time about the plateaus that I hit, but it was temporary, and the weight loss continued.
The first couple of months of the year started out well, but then I struggled to lose weight and actually gained weight in the last half of the year.
For the first quarter of the year I lost the weight I gained in the last part of the previous year. Then I gained it back and another 15 lbs just for good measure.
I try not to get too upset about this. My weight is still below 220 and considering I started just below 300 I’ve still made progress overall. I do feel like I’m on the verge of undoing it, but I have a much different lifestyle now. I am fit and active now, I wasn’t before. I’m eating too much again, thus the weight gain.
The triathlon training should help. Does that mean I’ll gain more weight after the triathlon is complete? Maybe. Should I worry? Not too much. I do need to start eating better. It’s the 2nd day of the year, and I’ve already went out for pizza twice this year. I can’t keep doing that.
