Friday is weigh in day... I think

I'm an accountant and therefore I'm a total dork about numbers and statistics. Traditionally, I've always marked my official weigh in day as Monday morning. I figured doing it Monday might keep me "honest" during the weekends. Some weekends it worked better than others...

But as I had my surgery on a Friday, I've been weighing in both Mondays and Fridays. Generally speaking I don't do well if I weigh in all the time, or even two days per week but because I'm so obsessive about certain things I just haven't been able to choose one day over the other yet. So.... For right now Friday's are my day.

My highest weight was 251 about four years ago. I lost 75 lbs through diet and exercise from that point but then slowly regained 60 lbs going back up to 235 before deciding to get banded. I'm 5'2" and counting 235 as my current starting weight.

Last Friday (9/17) I weighed in at 213.8 down from 216 the week before. A loss of 2.8 lbs for the week and a total of 21.2 lbs total.

I'm 20% of the way there - woo hoo!

Hi, Read!

I just found your blog thanks to Sarah... I jsut wanted to say great work so far... and I'm also an accountant by trade so I get the dorkiness for numbers. ;-)

I look forward to following you on your journey... Or your trek downward as the case may be!
