Progress: 10 pounds in 28 days

2011 February 14

I've lost 10 pounds in less than a month.

OK, now we’re talking.

I stepped on Paisley’s scale this morning before our 30-minute weight-lifting spree, and was excited by what I saw.

251 pounds!

Wow, the perspective. If I had gazed into a crystal ball three years ago and seen this weight, I would have fainted at the horror. But this is a 7 pound drop from last week, and I’m still convinced that Paisley’s scale is skewed on the heavy side.

But seriously, 7 pounds in one week.

OK, perspective please. Last Monday I was most likely retaining water. If you recall, I had an insane Friday night, slept most of the day Saturday and didn’t drink enough water.

But still, let’s put this all in perspective, since that’s the name of the game.

According to Paisley’s scale, I have now lost 10 pounds in 28 days. We are four weeks in, and at this pace I’m on track to lose exactly 25 pounds.

I don’t know if that will be enough for me to win the Just Lose It! contest, but it doesn’t really matter.

It’s all about perspective.

(Postscript: Since today is Valentine’s Day, I imagine you’re curious about who I went out with tonight. Here’s a hint.)
