Went to the gym this morning for a thrilling weightlifting session. Chest and biceps. Always fun. Hopped onto the scale before I started and found that I now weight 257 pounds. That's down from 280 pounds as of January 1st. So call it 23 pounds lost. I'm very pleased with that.
I have to lose eight more pounds to hit my first major goal which was to weight under 250 pounds. That should take me until about the end of March or the second week of April. After an initial drop of about five pounds right when I started, I'm losing between a pound and a half and two pounds a week, which is a nice, steady rate. Go me.
