I started today with my Wednesday Weigh-In, and I was thrilled to see another loss!
|Down 2 pounds from last week|
|Down 0.4% body fat from last week|
When I was over 200 pounds, I could gain or lose 15 pounds without even noticing it in my clothes. But now, every little pound counts. And it makes a difference in my running, as well. Once I get over 135ish, my pace is slower. I run best in the low 130's.
I haven't really been "dieting" since my surgery, so I will just keep doing what I've been doing and see where I end up--hopefully it'll be in the low 130's or less.
I'm also thrilled that my body fat is almost in the teens again. I was worried it was going to go up and up since I'm not running right now, but thankfully that hasn't happened.
Something that people e-mail or comment about most frequently is that I should write a book. About a year ago, I actually did write one, but I never did anything with it. By now, pretty much all of the info that I wrote is somewhere on my blog, so I was thinking of starting over from scratch with a different approach.
But for those of you that said I should write a book about my weight loss, I have a couple of questions. What kind of book are you thinking of? What would interest you? A memoir about my experience? An "advice" kind of book? A day-to-day journal from when I was losing the weight (which I still have)? I have so much info, but I don't know what people would be interested reading about.
I love memoirs in general, so I was leaning toward that--but my life is SO not interesting, I'm afraid that it would be horribly boring. Doing an "advice" book has been done ten thousand times before, so there wouldn't really be anything special to write about.
Something that I had in mind that would be kind of different would be to turn my old blog (my weight loss blog) into a journal-like book--editing the heck out of it, of course--and then throw notes or chapters into it sporadically, talking about things that helped me or things that I learned along the way. Does that make sense? I spent all day today going through my old blog (with Estelle on my lap--she loves the heated blanket).
So basically, I just need some input on what would be interesting to read!
Jerry's co-worker gave him some of this Starbucks peppermint hot cocoa--and he brought it home for me, since I've been kind of hooked on hot cocoa lately!
Tomorrow I actually have plans! I'm going to lunch and to Cabela's with Renee and Jessica. It's Renee's birthday!
