Congratulations, Marlene! That's great. I had a checkup yesterday and weighed in at 220. I can discount 4-5 pounds of that as clothing weight (former wrestlers always know what their clothing weighs), but that's still higher than I'd like. Personally I want to be down around 190. Luckily for me my wife prefers me in the 200 range . I could probably lose it immediately by cutting out the 3 or 4 glasses of wine a night, but that's not going to happen.
And we are into the new year. This is the time when people resolve to lose weight. I was pretty good over the holidays and neither gained nor lost. Having said that, I'm now down 32 lbs in total. We haven't done measurements for a while so I'm looking to do those next week and see where we stand.
Still working on it and looking for another 10 lb loss or so yet!
I'm not vowing to lose weight in the new year, but if the publisher buys off on the new book proposal my family will be transitioning to all hand made foods. Nothing from boxes, cans, jars or the freezer section. It will be interesting to see how that affects our weight (and my blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.). Should be interesting.
