Red banner day

For the first time in a really long time (I’m guessing back in 2000, or thereabouts), I weigh less than 200 pounds. I’m wearing pants I haven’t worn for a similar length of time, too.

I don’t even know how much I weighed at my peak—I didn’t bother getting on a scale until some four or five months into exercising—but I have lost over 25 pounds since I started weighing myself. Most of that was thanks to the unsurprisingly effective combination of eating less (not really “dieting” in any strict sense; just eating less crap and eating less in general) and exercising more.

I’ve lost the most-recent pounds without exercising, however. Sunriver was the straw that broke my already-broken schedule completely, and I still haven’t figured out a routine that I can keep reliably. The last week I’ve been fighting off a sore throat/cough combination bug that’s taken most of the wind out of my sails… long story short, I’ve gone about two weeks without exercise. And yet I still lost enough weight (muscle mass) to hit a milestone.

I still have a good bit more I need to lose, but I’m glad that I’ve finally turned the corner in this battle.
