Sick again

I despise being sick.  Too much being in bed and feeling like shit.

Another round of weight foolishness

We are doing a weight loss challenge at work.  I was on the committee and it got way out of hand real quick and became something that people would win actual money for losing the most weight.  We had to pay to be involved and I agreed to pay because we used part of the money to buy scales for three different places.

So, I weighed at home this morning (216 sans clothes) and at 220.2 here at work for my official weight.  I have disqualified myself from winning because I am collecting the data and building the spreadsheet to tally everything.  I don't have much integrity and I would hate to have the little I actually have to be challenged over a few bucks.  Now, sex, drugs or rock and roll would be no problem because I have no integrity when it comes to those things.

Having now tracked mine since early 2011, I find the whole thing with making your weight a secret a bit absurd.  I mean, I know some people are very private and I respect that.  But, if you can see, you can make a reasonable guess as to what someone weighs.  More importantly, knowing it exactly in no way changes the way a person looks.

Keep it simple
Be kind

I have decided that I work to live and I no longer have any desire to live to work.  I am happy that my work is something I enjoy and does not (at least directly) contribute to the decline of the world, but I don't have a need to do it.  I work so I can do other things.

I feel better now.

November? Seriously?

According to my usual timeliness measure, it is about time to post again.  Not much has changed with my weight. At least not for the good.  Still mostly bouncing back and forth between 210 and 215 with occasional bounces higher.

In other news, my prized bike, my Soma Double Cross broke yesterday. The right rear dropout broke right where it enters the chainstay. Sigh.  I don't know whether I want to fix it or not.  Part of me says yes it is worth it.  Part of me wonders if I could trust it.  Logically, I know I should, but I can allow my non-logical side some say in this I suppose.

June weigh in

It was a good news/bad news kind of day.  Weighed in at 210 and 24.9% body fat.  So, down three pounds but a bit up on the body fat percentage.  I now need to lose 11lbs in 18 days (which is not likely) to meet my goal.

On the plus side, earlier this week a colleague noticed that I had been losing weight. Since she did not know me at my heaviest, I take it that the latest drop is showing up.  Woot!

New Goal

Shooting for 199 by June 19.  Under 200 by 45.  I think I can. I think I can.
