December weigh in thread

Hi all, I'm back!!!!

I have actually lost some weight, I am now 207 pounds, down from 262 in January, so I am a very happy camper. I have been on a two month plateau, but I figure my body has had to have a rest to get used to the new lighter me. My ultimate goal is 140-150 so I still have a ways to go.

My mini goal is to be 30 pounds lighter by May when I go back to Australia for a holiday, and to be at goal by June 2006, when I turn 35.

How is everyone doing?

I don't weigh myself more than once a year at the Dr's office. My scale is currently sitting in the garage where it has been since I weighed some chickens. (Stupid story don't ask)

However...I have recently decided to get fit so can I contribute to this thread with stuff like, "My pants are looser" or "I had to buy new jeans today in a smaller size"? I want to make myself accountable and check in, just not with numbers.

Hello Kyles!!

That is great to know that you are getting healthier and fitter!! However, don't be overly concerned with what the scale tells you, and listen to your body and how you feel with yourself carefully. When you can go on further and feel stronger when you exercise, you are on a right track even if the amount of your weight won't budge. It is, more importantly, about your health much more than just your weight. Good luck with your quest, you are doing great!!

The chicken thing is really boring. I wish it were interesting, and believe me, I sat here for a bit trying to think of a more interesting story...not happening.

I get farm chickens twice a year, and quite a few of my friends buy them too. Since the price is per pound, I have to weigh the chickens each person buys and charge them accordingly. See...boring.

However, this is the only use my scale gets. Sad but true.

Actually, we run a fat farm for plump poultry. And we need a way to monitor their progress.

(THAT'S a much better story Alix.)
