Pound a Week–Week 3


Yay, another successful week.

Baseline: 301.9
Last Week:  299.4
This week: 296.2
Change this week: –3.2
Total Change: –5.7

So, three weeks in and I am 2.7 lbs ahead of schedule. That’s nice. I seem to remember this kind of thing from before, that the first few weeks are comparatively easy to show big progress. I assume that is the universe’s way of encouraging success. On the other hand, I am now almost exactly the weight I was two years ago, when I was so horrified at how heavy I was that I started a weight loss program. That time I made it down to about 261 lbs in four months, leveled out there for a month or so, and then slowly gained it all back and then some. That’s what I really fear, and what I hope that this weekly blogging will help prevent this time.

About Shmoolok

The word "shmoolok" is a mashup of the longtime computer handles for my wife and myself ("Shmooby" and "Lokheed", respectively).

I originally created this website to be a place for my family to connect, but it has since grown into something a little different.

As for me -- I am a father, a husband, a son, a software developer, and a writer. On any given day I am not sure how good I am at any of those particular things, but I do try my best.

Thank you for visiting my website.
