Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In

Ok, so I want to preface this with the fact that I had a huge company dinner last night at a fancy place that served steaks much larger than I'm used to. Not much of an excuse, but...

Week 3

Weight: 245.1 lbs

Weight last week: 241.1 lbs
Week's weight loss: -4.0 lbs
Total weight loss: -2.3 lbs

Target weight: 212.8 lbs
Weight remaining to lose: 32.3 lbs

Oh well.

Another odd thing worth mentioning is that I've been working to build a playset for my son and despite sweating up a storm and not eating any differently than usual, I was steadily gaining weight every day after working on the playset. It would be nice to believe this is muscle weight, but I think that's giving me too much credit.

Well, time to redouble the efforts, not dwell on this miserable failure, and let's see where next week ends up.

Damn, that's one big swing set. We just finished one for Aiden, and I thought it was pretty big until I saw that photo. That's not the one that you're building, is it?

Yup. 3 slides, 2 levels, 1 child. It's a good thing we're not spoiling him in any way.

The thing's a beast. 3 hours just to break down the 8 boxes and inventory all the parts. My friend Eric and I have put in about 13 hours so far, but most of that was the hard part of getting the basic structure up and leveling it out by digging nice trenches in the yard.

We're about halfway through with it now and things are moving faster as we have fewer pieces to sift through and I become less obsessive about making sure the screws are going in straight.

I'm taking pics as it's going up and I'll post about it once it's done.

Also need to post about the landscaping we did in November and our new front door.
