Week 41

Week 41 brings with it some really good progress in my effort to jump start my weight loss program.  Since signing up for a new gym membership on the 24th of July, I have lost 5 lbs, going from 258 lbs down to 253. I'm just 5 lbs shy of my lowest recorded weight on this program.  I'm feeling good about the results.  Right now, I'm playing catch up, so I've been giving it hell on cardio workouts, trying to melt the fat away.  I'm happy about the results so far.

In just 6 days, I'll finally get to see my family again.  I'm excited to see my wife and babies, as well as my dog.  It has felt like a very long time.  While I'm working during the week, it's not so bad because I stay busy enough not to think about them.  It's the weekends that really kill me.  Without anything that needs to be done, I find myself with a lot of thoughts that go to them, and it tends to make me feel lonely, despite the fact that I can always FaceTime with them on my iPhone.  I've been doing my best to keep my mind occupied with other things, but even I run out of things to think about.  Yes, I just wrote that.  I know it's hard to believe.  Seems I can talk about anything.  But after this week, it'll all be over.  I've set up a four-day weekend for myself next week.  I'm going bring them down.  As of right now, I'm counting down the days.

As for any other meaningful updates, I don't really have any.  I'm just doing what I'm doing and feeling better about myself.  Until next week then.
