Weekly Weigh-In

Weight this week is 312.9, virtually unchanged from last week. I was under (sometimes well under) on points all week except for Saturday, in which a turkey burger I expected to be a pretty decent choice turned out to be a points-bomb in disguise. With all the walking around on the weekend and the Dance Central every other day, I was also well over my activity points earning goal.

Even though the weight number itself didn't move this week, I can see physical changes occurring-- a noticeable reduction in the babyface puffiness around my cheeks, more definition in my shoulders, a visible hollowing around my lats and thighs... and stretch marks. This last took me by surprise, mostly by where they were (my shoulders, for the TMI crowd). I'm hoping to find some treatment to reduce these (for the record, cocoa butter doesn't actually work), but even if I manage to get down to my goal weight, I doubt I'll ever be a parade-around-on-the-beach kind of guy.

Mosey along the beach in shorts and a t-shirt... maybe. ;)

Of course, I've been down this road before: my lowest adult weight was around 285, with daily jogging (and being 15 years younger). Later I managed to get somewhere in the low 290s when I was doing kung fu regularly. But in both of those cases, I was pretty much flying blind when it came to what I ate. Hopefully now I'll have some decent guidance in that department.

I'm curious to know how much of that weight is genetics, if any... given the constant war you're fighting to get to a good weight I'm sort of thinking "some were meant to be big people" as it were. Not saying give up, far from it. Just curious.

Oh, a lot of it is, no question. My brother, raised in mostly the same environment and with even worse habits than mine, is wiry and thin.
