Weight / fitness status, 4/23/12

Week 4.  Net loss so far, 4.4 lbs, down 2.2 from last week.

My starting weight 3/26 was 189.6
My current weight is 185.2
My goal weight is 175
My plan is to lose 1 lb per week
My calorie budget is 1,725
My goal date is July 5, 2012
My original date was July 8, 2012
It seems to take a long time, but, you know, at this rate, at the end of May I’ll be at 180, then at the end of June I’ll be almost to my goal.  “Slow and steady wins the race.”  🙂
Tangent: Googling the above quote finds that it’s from Aesop’s The Tortoise and the Hare.  Another interesting Aesop quote that gets less air time: “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.”  🙂
