today i hit another goal in my journey to lose hormonal blubber and get into the best possible condition i can...i've lost more than 10% of my body weight.
i joined weight watchers 12 weeks ago and weighed 236.4 lbs. i had never been so fat in my life and i looked and felt terrible. today i weighed in at 212 lbs which is about seven lbs more than my pre-lupron weight.
i'm losing weight the old fashion way: diet and exercise. i can lose weight on my own but with weight watchers i eat most of the same stuff as before but i have a system that allows me to closely monitor what and how much i eat.
i changed my goal weight to 200 lbs. it was 205. i also took my last dose of celexa last week after a 10-week taper and that has increased my sex drive and energy. the SEs -- mostly anger and weird dreams -- are nearly gone.
i have another PSA test coming up and it worries me. in a perfect world i'll pick up my 25-lb. anchor (key chain) from WW next monday and then i'll head out to the eastern sierras -- mono lake, bodie ghost town, yosemite -- for a few days of photography. for years my dog used to go with me on photography junkets but we had to say goodbye to her a couple of months ago.
i'll keep you guys updated .
