Today I reached another new low for my weight at 187. That puts me two pounds away from my revised goal weight of 185 (which is 10 pounds under my initial goal weight of 195) as we enter our last month of Jenny Craig (by choice). According to another calculator, I'm in a sweet spot for ideal weight, but other tables show my ideal weight for my height to be anywhere from 136 (WTF???) to 189. Anyway, I feel good about being down under 190 and having lost 20 pounds. Plus I don't want to risk losing muscle during this whole weight loss exercise. It's all about feeling good and being healthy!
Today at the gym, as I was getting ready to leave, I walked by a trainer whom I know and who has worked there for years. He said I looked like I had lost 20 lbs. I told him I've lost almost exactly 20 lbs and that it was a great guess. "How could you tell? " I queried. "Well, your head is half as big as it used to be!" Too funny. It's nice that someone noticed though.
