Happy Anniversary Honey

Let me be perfectly clear.  I didn't plan it this way.

Just before going to bed last night I stepped on the weigh scale, even though "they" say your true measure should only be taken in the morning.  I've developed a habit to check at night and in the morning, monitoring the nocturnal loss of pounds.  Two nights ago I dropped over three pounds while sleeping, though I'm sure the fact that I got up to pee three or four times had something to do with it.

Last night, the scale read 181.4 lbs, even after a full day of activity, eating and drinking copious amounts of water.  Based on the average weight loss during sleep there was a better than average chance that I would dip below 180, my established target, by the time I woke up the next day.  I fell asleep thinking of those numbers.

I'm pleased to say that on the morning of our 9th wedding anniversary, I have reached my weight loss target, an arbitrary number really, as I completely pulled it out of the air back at my first appointment with BACK on TRACK with BARB on August 27th.  The timing is excellent.

All of that said, the path I'm on is something I wanted to do for myself.  The fact that it makes my wife and kids proud is a valuable fringe benefit.

As Heather flies back home from Vancouver, over the Rocky Mountains, across the great plains and up into the beautiful boreal forest, she can admire the postcard I designed this morning and picture less of me, but more to love.

Happy Anniversary Heather!
