I’ve gained 2.8 pounds in the last week and lost 141.4 pounds in 66 weeks. Want previous stats? Check out my entire 66 week weight loss progress.
Last week I thought I would be under 200 pounds by today. In retrospect, I should have prefaced that with “barring any unforeseen incident…”
I’m extremely grateful for the hundreds of e-mails, comments, and messages through Facebook I have received. I also appreciate Eat, Drink, Anything as they surprised the whole family with a bouquet of flowers at the funeral.
In addition, attached to the flowers we found a printout of all the supportive comments that had been posted on the blog up until Friday evening. I hadn’t looked at the blog since I made the quick post Friday morning so the included printout was our first opportunity to see the comments. My wife and I took the printout to the side and broke down several times trying to read it.
Over the weekend I realized how much this community means to me. And, by reading the comments, it looked like many feel the same way about it as I do.
I love all of you. While the comfort food, lack of healthy options, and lack of interest were simply too much to overcome the last several days to reach 199 today, barring some unforeseen incident I’ll hit my goal next Wednesday.
I’ll do it for you. I’ll do it for my dad. I’ll do it for myself.
We’ve waited long enough.
