18 Week Update

It's been a crazy week "home". I arrived back in the country on Sunday, after being gone for three weeks. I enjoyed a few nights home, only to leave again on Wednesday for a quick work trip to Chicago. That led pretty quickly into a great weekend away at the Jersey Shore. I was glad to see that, through all the chaos, I managed to have a good week in terms of weight loss (though not so much with my eating!):

Surgery day: 250.4
One month 226.1 (24.3 lbs month/24.3 lbs total)
Two month: 211.8 (14.3 lbs month/38.6 lbs total)
Three month: 201.3 (10.5 lbs month/49.1 total)
Four month: 189.5 (11.8 lbs month/60.9 total)
Week 17: 187.5
Week 18: 183

1 week weight loss: 4.5 lbs
Total weight loss: 67.4 lbs

So, a good week. In my video you'll hear a bit about my crappy eating, lack of working out, and concerns about the 6 month honeymoon phase nearing an end soon. Yikes! I mention a couple of articles in the video. Here's the links. Enjoy!

Holy cow, I sped past the four month mark! Crazy. I've been on the road traveling for work (and fun!) for three weeks to Brazil, Australia, and India and it's been a crazy ride. Let me start with the stats:

Surgery day: 250.4
One month 226.1
Two month: 211.8
Three month: 201.3
Four month: 189.5 (estimate based on hotel scale)
Week 17: 187.5

1 week weight loss: 2.0 lbs
Total weight loss: 62.9 lbs

Made it to size 14s this week! Wow, that's crazy. Haven't been this size since high school. You can check out the video to hear more about what I've been up to. Enjoy! Nice to be home.
