Two months from “now” always seems like a long time away. Can you imagine if you were given two whole months off from work, school, or whatever it is that keeps you busy against your will, and you could do whatever you wanted? You could conquer the world in two months. Or at least make a dent in your garage cleanup.
By contrast, two months in the past always seems like just a few hours ago. You blink and suddenly eight full weekends have passed you by. And what do you have to show for it? Well, hopefully you have something like this to show for it:
With the exception of the vacation blip, that’s not a bad graph. People always come up to me and say, “Charlie, how do you do it? How did you suddenly get back on track so quickly and get such good results in a short amount of time?” And I say to them, “Who the *bleep* are you! Get away from my limo!!!”
Last week went okay. Although the prior week showed the larger delta, and although both weeks more or less ended up in the same spot, I feel pretty good about things. And I’m tantalizingly close to breaking the next weight “decade.”
|Lost So Far||12.1|
|Pounds To Go||21.9|
My current weight is listed to the 10th of a pound. That isn’t because I bought some new fancy scale, but because I’m going back to reporting weekly weights as a seven day average. It just makes more sense at this phase and evens out the weekly anomalies. That will help me hide the Halloween damage three weeks from now and the buttered movie theater popcorn damage forty days from now.
