I got down to last week's 185 pounds goal.
I am getting a bit bored with this weekly weigh-in thing.
Maybe I should just decide that 185 is my ideal weight and call a stop to this.
The lowest weight I have shrunk to in my adult, post-30s years, is 168.5.
In April of 2006, five years ago, I'd returned from a visit to the Pacific Northwest feeling very aggravated about how aggravating that visit had been. To put my mind in a better place I went on an extremely vigorous bike ride, pretty much every day. Soon I was shrinking.
That bout of shrinkage continued until July of 2008, when I shrunk to the aforementioned 168.5.
In July of 2008 I was back in the Pacific Northwest. For a month. And again it was very aggravating. More so than the 2006 visit.
In August of 2008 I returned back to my safe place, but did not react to being aggravated like I had in 2006.
My mom and dad visited the first week of 2009. They wanted to go to a Sweet Tomatoes restaurant. I had not been to Sweet Tomatoes before.
From 2006 til 2009 I very rarely ate in restaurants. Eating out a lot is a surefire way to weigh more.
After my mom and dad's visit I found myself re-visiting Sweet Tomatoes many times. And returning to my favorite Indian buffet, Tandoor, for the first time in a long time, with many follow-up visits. I discovered Zorro's Buffet. I had Riscky's BBQ all you can eat ribs. Twice. I discovered Town Talk, which had me suddenly having a steady supply of real good cheese.
By the time the New Year of 2011 showed up I had bloated up to 217 pounds. 48.5 pounds heavier than my July of 2008 low of 168.5.
I guess I am still aiming to shrink to 180. Let's make next Saturday's goal 183.
