Pretty Close

Just wanted to update after my weigh-in visit with Dr. Z on Tuesday.  At my last appointment I told him to tell me to “lose 5 pounds” by my next appointment.  He laughed, repeated what I said – and, when he left, said “Ok, 193 next time!”.

So, using that as my marching orders, I got pretty close.  Not gonna lie, I was pretty much using full meal replacement the whole last week.  But I’m happy to report that I was very very close – I weighed in at 193.5 lbs.

Nothing much else to report.  I did loosen up my eating in the days that followed, per usual.  I gave myself a few days but am back on track today – and I’m heading out for a run in a few minutes.  I’m trying not to slide for 1-2 weeks before getting down to business, but I did “need” a few days.  I probably should evaluate why I feel like I do “need” those days (because earlier on in this journey I did not cave in to this).

Didn’t get to tennis this week because we had Hamilton tickets Tuesday night!  We loved it.  We had 2 sets of 2 tickets, about 12 rows apart – the boys weren’t quite as excited about seeing it as we were, so Erin and I sat together for the show.  It was a big bummer that Sarah couldn’t make it home for the show – of the 5 of us, she is the one that would have enjoyed it the most.

Oh, and seeing how successful this tactic was last month, Dr. Z simply said … “OK, let’s do 188 by next visit”.  So, that’s the next target!
