Not a good result, and not one I expected. I am up eight pounds, to 321. I could come up with excuses, but excuses are cheap. I’m clearly not active enough and I’m not tracking thoroughly. I’ve begun logging my eating again, and I’ve asked a lifting friend of mine to come up with a gym routine for me. I hope to be back to the gym by the end of the week, and the corrected eating should show some result on my weigh in in a couple of days.
With the idea that transparency will both help me and possibly some reader of A Taste For The Woods, I’ve added my complete weight history for the past decade to the sidebar on the right. I’ve also included it in the post below. It’s good to remind yourself that weight loss is never once and done. I’ll be working to keep my weight under control for the rest of my life. I might as well show what I’ve done, as well as what I’m doing.
Although I’ve not included all data points, I think there’s a clear pattern of my partial regain over the years, in that I tend to put on weight following an injury and then never lose it. August 2008 I was 260 following a nearly two month layoff due to a broken rib. In 2009 and 2010 my knees began to give out, and in 2012 I was operated on. In 2014, God willing, I should be healthy, and I want to reverse my gains.
