I've made it to week 10... Woo Hoo!!! I'm down to 246.8 this week so that's about 2 pounds from the previous week. I'm VERY happy with my results so far. To date, in 10 weeks I've lost a total of 23.2 pounds. That's slightly above the average of 2 pounds a week. I don't want to get too much higher than that since it wouldn't be healthy so I'll shoot to stay on track.
Right now, I'm ahead of plan to make it to 200 by my birthday. I REALLY hope that I get to that goal. It would be the lightest I've been since I moved here about 11 years ago.
Tonight I've got the 2nd half of my sleep apnea test to figure out where my CPAP machine should be set and then I guess within a day or two I should hear from the people that deliver the machine and goodies that go along with it. My daughter should get a kick out of it!
Time to hop in the shower and get ready for work. Take care guys and keep on losing!!!

Yesterday we went to the in-laws for Father's Day. We had a good time as always. My father in-law made some black bean burgers that were pretty good! MUCH better than the recipe we tried the other day for bean burgers. Ours were actually pretty nasty! I also had a good sized salad with tomatos, onions, and yellow peppers with some lite italian dressing, and a baked potato, skin and all! I also drank about 3 glasses of water with dinner. For desert I had some dump cake that was very good! (Dump cake is a crazy name, but it's easy to make and good too!)
I'm still waiting for my sleep apnea results. I was told by the tech guy at the hospital that I should hear from them Thursday or Friday and that didn't happen. I also posted some pictures of all the gizmos that I was hooked up to on my Facebook page.
Tomorrow I go back to my doctor for my 3 week follow up visit and today I get to call the insurance company and find out why they didn't pay $20 to him the first time I was there. They're trying to tell me I should have paid a co-pay but I don't have a co-pay on a wellness visit. Darn insurance companies got to make things freaking difficult.
I'm still walking 2 miles in the morning every other day and have kept it up for about 3 weeks now. I look forward to my morning walk, it helps me clear my head and it's a good way to kick off the day. I walked a 3 mile route this past Saturday and it felt good. I will probably stick with 2 mile walks during the week and kick it up to 3 or maybe even 4 miles on the weekend since time isn't an issue.
We got the game for our Wii called Just Dance the other day and I gave it a shot yesterday. I must preface this though by saying I can't dance a lick! I did three songs... Eye of the Tiger, Womanizer and I Like to Move It. Overall, I don't think I did too bad. I would expect to score better as I become more familiar with some of the moves. I was totally screwing up a bunch of them, but hey, I was moving and that's all that really matters in the long run.
Well, it's time for me to get to work! My next blog should be on Wednesday when I weigh in. Take care guys!!

Well I lost another 3 pounds. I had to weigh myself about 10 times before I got anything consistent on that piece of crap scale. I got weights ranging from 249 all the way down to 247.2 so I basically entered in the average. I'm very happy with the results since I've been walking fairly religiously every other day.
I've had a busy start to this week. I had to drive up to Chesterbrook, PA (about an hour and 15 minute commute one way) to head to the SAS Institute for a class for work so I haven't been on SP much lately.
Last night when I got home from the class around 6pm, I had to get ready for my sleep apnea test and drive back up to Wilmington to do it. The test was over at 5:15 this morning and I had to drive back home, get my lunch ready, etc, and then drop my daughter off at the in-laws and head back up to Wilmington to work.
Not to mention that we went to the beach this weekend so between all that driving, I really burned through a tank of gas pretty quickly!
The sleep apnea test was weird. I took some pics and if I'm brave enough, I'll post them here and probably on my Facebook account. It was crazy being hooked up to all the wires and sensors and to then try and sleep without knocking any of them off. I didn't sleep very well at all, seemed like it took forever to actually fall asleep. Seemed like I woke up a bunch of times too. I should have the results Thursday or Friday.
Speaking of results, I have the results from my blood work back and it turns out that my thyroid is outta whack. That could explain A LOT of my issues. So now I have those pills to take in addition to my blood pressure pills. I'm gonna need another job to pay for my meds and my daughter's meds too. I go back to the doc in about another week to check the progress of my bp. Hopefully it's improving. We'll have to wait and see.
Have a great week everyone, and keep on losing!!!
