I succeeded in finding a scale and performing my first weigh-in yesterday, which happened to be the first day of my brand new diet. I had feared my starting weight would sicken me. Happily, I was wrong.
Although the digital readout said I weigh 236 pounds the number actually made me smile... and not because I stand 6-foot-8 and 236 is a good weight for me. I am only 5-foot-7.
But I still managed to smile because 236 means I am several pounds LIGHTER than the last time I got motivated to lose some weight! I am traditionally the stereotypical yo-yo dieter -- a guy who gains back more weight than he loses.
I am psyched for success and I plan to use the scale just once a week; daily weigh-ins are mentally detrimental to the dieter because there are too many fluctuations day to day.
If you want to monitor my progress check back each Wednesday because weigh-in will take place first thing in the morning.
In other exciting news, I actually went for a 30-minute walk around the 'hood this morning -- and I took my dog Scruffy with me. Lord knows my 100-pound golden retriever can use a little activity too!
A new morn... a new norm
Morning walks will now become the norm for me and Scruffy. Quick and effective workouts will soon follow.
