Weigh-In #7 – You’ve got to be kidding me…

Wheel full 70px Today’s weigh-in, the seventh since I started posting them each Monday, comes to you courtesy of Halifax, Nova Scotia’s QEII Health Sciences Center’s Kidney Dialysis Unit, which helpfully provided a scale when I showed up out of nowhere and asked for one.   It’s apparently used to weigh patients before and after dialysis treatments.   Beyond that I know nothing except that the staff on the unit and the helpful fellow in the emergency department who checked around to see who had a scale I could use are really some great people.

Wheel full 70px I had absolutely no idea after all the odd stuff I’ve eaten this previous week where my weight was going to wind up.   You could’ve tripped over my smile, then, when I saw what the scale had to say.


Wheel full 70px And that’s with my socks on!

Wheel full 70px I have now lost just about exactly 10% of my body weight since I started taking diet and exercise seriously in June of this year.   I don’t know where this is going to wind up, but if you had told me three months ago that I would weigh in the low 330s by mid-August I would’ve laughed  in your face. When I get home I’m not going to have a darn thing in my closet that will fit-  and that suits me just fine.

  1. Yeah! I’d love to have lost 10% of my body weight in the last two-or-so months. I know how danged hard it is.

    I did have a question about your route in SE CT, where you go up CT-117 from Groton to the 2A bridge and down CT-32 to New London to the Ferry to Long Island. Was this intentional, or does the program not show the bike/pedestrian lane (protected from the cars by jersey barriers) on the northmost side of the southbound span of I-95 between Groton and New London? Admittedly 117-2A-32 is much, much more scenic. 🙂

    • No, Google Maps cycling overlay misses that. While I’d like to take the scenic route, I’m burning days up here in NS waiting on those %<\!?#! meds. So we'll see, but that's great to know.

      And lunch (or some meal appropriate to whatever time I'm passing through) is on me, ma'am.
