Well, a lot has happened the last two weeks. I never blogged about last Monday’s weigh-in because we went to St. Louis for vacation and I didn’t make the time. I did post my weight on Facebook and on daytum.com. I weighed in (again, this is last week) at 245.4 lbs, for a total 5-week loss of 12 lbs.
Then we went on vacation.
First, I decided that even though I had made this silly bet to myself that I needed to keep my mustache until I lost 20 lbs, I felt the mustache has served its purpose. It got me (and Linnea, I might add) on a pretty regular diet and exercise routine this summer. It’s one step better than last summer (we were running, but not dieting that well). Anyway, I also didn’t want this stupid mustache on vacation, or in any of the other summer pictures.
Then we literally went on vacation, rather than when I said this above… We had a great time in St. Louis, which unfortunately included lots of good food (and by good I mean good, not good-for-you). Then we came home for a whopping 20 hours, and drove up to visit family (Louis’ uncle had a birthday, and Linnea had a work meeting in the area too). We didn’t do as bad as St. Louis, but the eating still wasn’t quite diet-worthy.
Oh well. We’re back on track now, but leaving again on Saturday for 4th of July festivities (yikes). Then we’ll have a few more days of good dieting before celebrating Louis’ 3rd birthday. I’m assuming some cake will be had. Oh well x3. I’ll get this weight off eventually.
So here’s the damage from our vacation week (I didn’t bold it on purpose…):
Current weight: 247.2 lbs
Total loss: -10.2 lbs (week 5 gain: 1.8 lbs)
I think I mentioned this before: oh well.
