My Progress

Losing 0.6 is still L O S I N G...

So weigh-in wasn't the 10% I had hoped it would be. I needed 3.6 to make it and only lost 0.6. That was a bit of a disappointment at first, but I really thought about it, and it shouldn't be. I lost 0.6 pounds. It isn't huge. It's not helping my 3.0 average I'm hoping to maintain, but it's also not doing anywhere near the damage a gain would have done. I just have to look at it that way. A loss is a loss. As long as I'm moving forward, I'm not failing. And honestly, even if I do have another gaining week (like Memorial Day was), so what? Until I quit (which I honestly don't see happening. It really is a life change...) I'll keep trying regardless of how bad my last weigh-in was.

So here I stand, a man not at his 10% mark.... Yet... but I'll get it next week. I'm confident of that. I've already had two great days where I followed the plan well (even Saturday, my usual go-nuts-don't-count-shit day) and I'm going to carry that through all week, hit the gym 5 days and I'm going to love it.

Oh, and I've discovered a love for the WW message boards 20 year olds forum. I'm like the only guy there and just reveling in the attention. I get a lot of support advice there and am able to lend some of my own as well. Hi, girls!

Progress so far: 32.0 pounds.

LOL...what guy wouldn't like the attention of all of us beautiful ladies?!

Congrats on your loss too! And you're exactly right, a loss is a loss no matter how big or how small.

This time 'round, I will be thrilled if I don't see a gain at all. I'd rather lose .4 lbs than gain .2 lbs.

See you on the boards!

It's nice to have some testosterone on the boards! :) I liked reading your post about your childhood - I could definitely relate. I dont know if you use AIM, but my name is imashorty if you ever want to chat. Otherwise, keep up the good work and congrats on your .6 loss - I'm sure you'll make 10% next week :)
