Wakie wakie eggs and bakie, ummm not really but the spiders are back..Last year around this time my wife walked out onto our back porch and between the wrought iron hand rails there was spiderwebs, and when I say spiderwebs, I mean a lot of webs and it was covered in about 2000 tiny yellow spiders with black markings on their abdomen. I opened the back door this morning to show my daughter that it was still raining outside and she says "look dad buggys" so I take a look at her eye level on our screen door and its covered in tiny yellow spiders again. She takes off running like in the cartoons with her legs becoming a blur, pausing for just a moment and I could swear I heard the sound track from an old Scooby Doo cartoon as she shot into the living room, and out came the 409 spray because bleach works well and they were all over the screen and in the jam so I gave them a spray and this set is gone, but if they are like last years batch we will have 4-5 days worth of huge ol piles of them at a time. ahhhh spring time, ya gotta love it.
Onto the weigh in for the morning. This morning at wake up time I was 437.6 then 438 on the nose then 437.8, I always take the highest weight so we will call it 438 lbs, so I am into the 30's solidly. That is a 3 pound difference from last week and I am happy with that, even though it was a 4 lb drop on Wednesday. I know that I will weigh less in an hour or two because last night before bed I drank almost a half a gallon of water while watching ER. but since 438 is what the scale said thats what the weigh in will be counted at. I am 4 pounds away from being 100 pounds down now, that is very cool to me. each week I put up a photo of something that weighs as much as I do and usually its a motorcycle because when I hit goal weight (or close to it anyways) I am rewarding myself with a motorcycle, and since I am so close to 100 lbs lost and I feel its a significant enough number, I will be posting something that weighs as much as I have lost along with the other pic on weigh in days. here is the first in that series.
I have to admit that I really did not think that I would have lost this much weight in so little time but I also have to admit that I am impressed with myself because of it. I also wanted to mention that my wife is down 43 pounds as of this morning as well, I am equally impressed with her loss and feel that I am very lucky to have someone that is following the same low calorie plan that I am. She looks great and we both feel better than we have in a long while. if you add together what we have both lost the number is 139lbs, that is truly insane to me that we were carrying that amount around just over 4 months ago, a lot of hard work and a ton of determination goes a long way it would seem. Thanks for reading.
