Catching Up

So it's been a while since I've updated this blog. I'm writing this as I fly to Dallas, Texas for a conference on computer science education. While I'm killing time, I thought I'd finally update my status on the weight loss.

Sometime around October 2010, I hit a nice point where I lost about 60 pounds. This put me in at about 270 or so. However, since then, I've been unable to break through 270 consistently, and have even at times put weight back on. Clearly my diet had changed and I've stabilized.

Weekly-Weigh In: Down!

That's right, down!  And not just down one or two, but four pounds to 268.  Actually the scale was wavering between 267.5 and 268, so I rounded up. What the hell, I was in a good mood.  Life has been stressful and I didn't really eat a true dinner last night, so I'm sure that impacted it, but I'll take it. Perhaps my new trick is no-dinner Mondays.

Weekly Weigh-In: Mixed News

It's another week and another weigh in.  Form the graph, you might be able to tell that I'm back up to 272. Sigh.  This was not what I had hoped for. However, today I got some news of a different sort...

Weekly Weigh-In

So it's been another two weeks since my last post.  There's not been much news. I gained a few pounds and then lost one this week.  While I guess it could be worse, I really need to find the path to get back on the downward trend.

Another week, another 4 pounds...

After dropping back down to 267 pounds last week (and failing to blog about it), I'm back up to 27 this week. It's a little depressing, but clearly I need to make some adjustments in my life. The very hard part is that earlier this week I was notified that one of my research projects is up to receive an NSF grant, and I've been scrambling to get back to them with some requested information.  This involves emailing and speaking with my collaborators, as well as all of the other work-related duties I currently have as well.
