Week 16

This morning I was at 226 – two pounds less than last week and 20 pounds down from baseline. This is the first time I have broken through the 228 barrier on this go around. Now I’m down around the weight I was at in Atlanta when I thought I really needed to lose some weight. I did a fair bit of bike riding last week, including a long ride yesterday that took me around the Bahai’i Temple and the Evanston lighthouse. I was kind of falling off the wagon last week in terms of quality of food (I ate Giordano’s twice!) but did alright on portion control. I need to keep working to make sure that I don’t pop right back above 228. This was a pretty psychologically important milestone to make, so I need to continue downward to feel like I’m getting somewhere.
