Weigh-In: Week 24 – The Week I Caught Back Up

Week of 10-14 through 10-20 in the year of our Lord 2011
This is the first weigh-in of the rest of my life. Here are the results for week 24:

Today: 267.2 lbs.
Last Week: 269.8 lbs.
Week Difference: -2.6 lbs.
Total Loss: 67.4 lbs.
Body Fat: 22.6 % 
Lean Mass: 43.1%  
(-3.3 (beginning to doubt the accuracy here))
Blood Pressure: N/A
BMI: 33.4 (-0.3 )

So last week and this week are a wash for all practical purposes.  I have no idea what happened. I don’t care.  Next week’s weigh in will determine if last week was just a weird bump in the road and I am still on track or if it was a sign of something more dubious. But for now it’s time to move forward.  I’m not looking back…

This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking my fam to the Appalachian State vs. Citadel football game at Johnson Haygood Stadium here in Charleston. I love it when App comes to town.  Good time. AppState won even though they put in their 12th string in the second half and let the Bulldogs stage a serious attempt at a comeback.  In the end, though, the Mountaineers took the game.  My whole family had a great time.  I ate a gracious plenty of boiled peanuts bu,t in the grand scheme of things, that was not so bad.  My kids on the other hand tore up the cotton candy.  Glad that isn’t much of a temptation for me. Since I didn’t do weigh in pics this week, here is my close up…

Me and Charlie, the Boy King

Speaking of AppState, I am leaving for a mini-vacay (to Boone NC)  in about an hour and a half, so I will have the challenge of eating well on the road.  I love this type of challenge because I know I can handle it.  There are lots of ways to eat right on the road.  You just have to be willing to think clearly and act properly. It also helps me to look at it as sort of a competition with myself. If I give in and eat crap, then I lose. I don’t like losing. I like sheening. Uh, I mean winning.

I bought myself a little something, something for my trip. You may recognize its significance. Take a look…

Nice vest right? Hey what’s that patch say there on the shoulder?

Yeah, that’s right.

If you are not a regular reader (or if you have short-term memory loss) you can catch up on the significance of this vest in my previous post about Half-Moon Outfitters. This is a size XXL and it fits perfectly.  How you like them apples?


Until next week’s weigh-in,

Remember that all is permissible but not all is profitable…
