well i'm pretty happy the first 4 weeks are gone and i lost 26.2 pounds. this is from my poor scale, since i'm at the 4 week mark i think i will head to the DALC today and get a real weigh-in on a decent scale. i'm actually 3.8 pounds short of the "real goal". which was 30 for the first 4 weeks. it's no surprise i've come up short of that, i had 4-5 days of cheating/messing up. i'm past that now. i think the DALC scale may reveal i'm even closer to that goal. i'm happy to be a month into this and solidly on it (more then the loss itself). this diet isn't about suffering (there's a little of that at the start) it's more about time. i think i will catch up on the 3.8 pounds.
on an unrelated note: it snowed yesterday, i got up early to shovel and deal with ice on the jeep and roads. anyway in my new place on main street in kasson we are required to shovel within 24 hours of a snowfall's completion. i shoveled in the morning at 4:00am but it was still snowing. didn't stop until about 10 am. when i got home around 5:30 it had been shoveled again, but poorly - appeared to be done by a brush or something. i redid it again - because who ever did it just made it worse.
the city will charge you if you don't shovel within 24 hours (i shoveled twice within a 10 hour period). this is being posted should who ever shoveled (a third time) still within that time frame, somehow claims i (and my neighbor) had failed to shovel. that is not the case. myself and my next door neighbor have been very diligent and have been doing one-another's sidewalks. could be that the neighbor to the right did both of ours as a courtesy. that's OK - just don't want the city claiming we failed to fulfill their requirements. both sidewalks were done 3x within the required time frame :)

yesterdays weigh-in was done at the DALC (so more accurate). i'm getting excited about my weight loss film again - even thought there is so much other stuff to be excited about right now... i think it's going to be great - it's gong to be all the richer for africa and if my weight drops identically (without all the exercise) it could be significant. i'm going to start filming myself again (for down 200), as i go thru this second phase of thew weight loss.

Met the 15 Lbs. Down mark today. Happy about that. This is also day 4 of really being strict. I always get 15 in the first week but I started with not so perfect days. It's been a week and three days. I'm hoping that over the next 4 days I willl lose 5 more pounds and be back on track :)
going well though.
