Weightwatchers weigh-in meeting today.
The bad news was that I was up +5 lbs., now I'm not freaking out too much because I've been sick for the past 7-10 days; I missed last week's weigh-in; I haven't run or worked out at all and I've been drinking H20 like a fish to stay hydrated - so I feel about as bloated as a puffer fish.
Still that's not an excuse, but I knew that I risked days like this when I started this public weight loss regimen, which with today's gain is still -25.0 lbs. since I started on April 7th of this year.
Now here's the good news, I am totally stoked by this story that I read in this past weekend's edition of Parade magazine about the incredible weight loss of actor Drew Carey [see photo insert]. I've always been a fan of his and this incredibly inspirational story has further confirmed that.
The guy has lost -77 lbs. since November 2009. He's now tipping the scales at a lean 185 lbs. with a starting weight of 262 lbs. - all at the age of 52 years old. Slowing metabolism be damned!
Drew Carey is more than 10 years my senior and weighed 40 lbs. more than I did when I started. Through his example, I'm re-inspired to renew my efforts.
As always, I hope there is less of me to write about next week. Thanks DC!!
