apocalypsos: (i'm an amused children's bullfighter)
... but I've been trying to lose weight since the start of the year. And it's working, which is awesome.

I started out the year at about 195 pounds, and I hit 180 the last few days. I've managed to cut all of the crap out of my diet with the exception of my weekly treat -- I get one crappy meal a week so I don't get frustrated and stop -- and I've been exercising pretty regularly, which should become more frequent when the weather gets warmer. (I bought a new basketball and I'm getting a folding bike with my amended tax refund so that I can try to ride every day no matter where I go.)

My belly seems to be getting smaller before everything else, which I have nooooooo problem with. I haven't worn any of my jeans in a while -- partly because they made me uncomfortable around the waist and partly because working from home means quite frankly I don't have to wear pants at all if I don't want to -- but I put a pair on today and they're neither digging into my waist nor giving me a poochy belly.

I'd like to be down to 130 pounds by the end of the year. I'm seriously not in a hurry to lose the weight, I'd much rather just get back into shape again. I signed up for the American Heart Association Heart Walk in May, and I asked my mom to do it with me so I can't cop out at the last minute. So basically I'm in training right now so I don't pass out twenty feet from the starting line.

It would be really awesome if I was down in the 140s by the first week of August, though, since my family has a sort of family reunion that weekend every year and it would be nice to talk about something other than "How's school going?" and "Why aren't you married yet?".
