milestone

Just thought I would post a quick note as a way of encouraging myself to not visit the candy dishes or vending machines this coffee break. I know you don't care about my weight any more than I care about yours, but thought I would brag for a moment that I have lost 20 lbs. 20.1 to be exact. I still have a further goal in mind, which will remain confidential in case I never reach it, but it's nice to achieve this intermediate goal in the approximately two months since I started keeping track on the Bobcat diet. Well, Bobcat is of course 100% gluten free. I'll call mine the Bobcat's Dad diet, which has been about 80% gluten free - we cheat when we're alone, or sometimes when certain GF items like buns and granola bars are very expensive, we'll have regular while he has GF - as long as he doesn't feel excluded by having a completely different meal from the rest of us. And there have been far less, but not completely eliminated, afternoon and evening snacks. I don't know how noticeable it is to the casual observer, but I did find myself less unhappy with the way I looked on camera when looking at camping photos last night. So that's progress.

Way to go! I'm sure 20 pounds is noticeable to anyone. That is a great milestone. Have you found that you want to eat less in general? I know that since exercising my appetite is diminished, so that I don't overeat any more. Such a good feeling!

Nope, the appetite is still there. I may have to exercise yet...

That's terrific Daddio! Keep it up and I'm very sure you will meet your goal- guys are blessed when it comes to meeting weight goals, women, well...we have to work a little harder.
