Monthly Weigh-in 07/29/2018 = 205lbs; to Gnome me is to love me

Another loving gift from my Daughter and Granddaughter; I'd like to welcome the "Mutha Fuggin' Grandpa Gnome" to the front garden.

I'm down to 205lbs, which pretty much is on schedule; losing a pound a week is a reasonable goal;  I had secretly hoped to do much better ... short of having liposuction I guess this is the best I can do ... basically trying to eat high protein and stay around 2,000 calories a day.

Down 20lbs total so far.  Historically, when I get down to around 200lbs (where I hope to be at the end of August) I begin to forget why I was dieting and the weight starts creeping back up.  I am mentally preparing to get my weight down to a cyclic range of between 165lbs and 185lbs.  We shall see ...

Miles and months yet to go ...

Um, yeah....over the past month and a half, ten of those pounds you lost I managed to find :)

Didn't plan to not update as long as I have....just kind of happened. Actually, it was kind of nice. Enjoyed some summer, different relatives from out of town visiting at different times and....gaining ten pounds. Gotta drop 'em. Heck, Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Not to mention Halloween candy. Arrghghghgh!

Keep up the willpower, my friend. That's what I put into action when I dropped from 205 down to 180, my ideal weight. But now...190. Somehow, my weight gain has to be the fault of Trump. I can't blame the chocolate cupcakes, oh - they are innocent, I tell ya!

Heh, I'm going to blame my weight gain on the evils of stretch denim ;)

Great to see ya back. I hear ya ... it's sometime good to take a break ... from EVERYTHING.

Hang in there ... I'm now down to 200 ... and I'm going to hand out coins for Halloween so I can avoid snacking on the treats.

Thanks for stopping in!
