Still losing weight

Some of you may have been wondering if I am still eating different. While I did make a few exceptions for Christmas, I am still on track for the most part. I still love eating those little pre-made frozen dinners for lunch. I did gain some weight during the holidays, and went from 302 up to 304 for a week, but then was back to 302... and this weekend I saw two zeros in a row. 300. I'm pretty psyched about that. The weight is arbitrary, of course, because nothing is loose on me yet, but it's the only quantitative guide I have to go by. I can't say I feel any different, although eating balanced meals has certainly helped my mood and energy level.

I know at some point, I will plateau, and I'll have to face the exercise demons. I hate exercise. I hated it when I was a kid, and I hate it now. I have mentioned why a few times in my blog, so I won't mention it again, but I am hoping to gain enough spare energy so that exercise will be the only way to expel it. I'd love to be 220 by the end of 2005, and stay there, but I have a feeling I'll plateau around 260-280 before I have to say, "Okay, how much does this REALLY mean to me?" And honestly, I'd love to be a bit more pumped up and stronger so I can do housework and repair without being so damn tired all the time.

I'm not mentioning a blow-by-blow of this exciting "walrus losing weight" saga because it's pretty much the same thing every day, and I don't want it to seem like I am boasting to those friends of mine still working with their weight. But I'd like a record for myself later, so I hope you don't mind when I pop in and list where I am at. It's part of the "keeping honest" thing I do with my blog. I figure if I have to answer to people publically, I won't be tempted to make stuff up or avoid topics.
