Back when Michelle and I were in college, we had a murder/suicide pact that if we got to weight x we were ending it all. Well, weight x has come and is long gone and we're both still alive. In fact, weight y has come and gone and we're still alive which shows how serious we both were about this whole pact. I've been counting calories obsessively for about 2 weeks. caloriecount.about.com says I should only be eating 1600 calories per day and honestly I haven't been strict about it. Most days I'm within 100 of it. Some days (like yesterday) I didn't but I'm still eating fewer calories than I burn (according to the site). I've also added exercise in the morning most days (40 min). Gilad's Bodies in Motion make me happy. I DVRd them from Fit TV so I can ff through the commercials.
So I have between 8 - 9 lbs (I use an analog scale not a digital one) to get back down to weight y. Which will also mean I can go on the zipline. So far I've lost about 5 - 6 lbs. I know that's not a lot, but it is good so far. :)
