Lost the Weight of a Little Angry Chihuahua

Hit the scale this morning and dropped 3.5 lbs in one week! I see those weight loss buttons on blogs but I never see anyone making them mean something beyond numbers. If someone were to loose 25 pounds that’s huge, but imagine saying they have lost a huge turkey’s weight. Moreover people who loose weight should walk around the supermarket and actually heft and walk around a bit with something of the weight they have lost… it makes it more powerful and real.

Easter has been a bit chaotic on the nutrition side, eating out once, a Easter dinner, and some fasting for Holy days. I think the choices I made are getting better… a few pieces of fruit over the deviled eggs, but the progress has been on the treadmill. I’m now a card carrying member of the Pi Club! I’m not actually sure if there is a Pi club but doing 3.14 miles (over 5k?) in under an hour (just by a hair!) makes Pi. Better than eating a pie in an hour, huh?

  1. You are doing great, Alan! Keep up the good work!

    I like the idea of putting a visual like a turkey or a chihuahua to one's weight loss. Great idea!

  2. Kudos on the loss :D
    I echo chubby chick that is a great idea.

  3. I'm late. Way to go on the lose and on the 3.14 m in a hour.

  4. I dunno if I'd say it's BETTER than eating a pie in an hour, but probably healthier, for sure. Awesome job :)
