Fledgist's Journal, 12 January 2012

Down quite a bit more this morning. This is,clearly, a weight-loss week after a couple of weeks of plateauing. I'm approaching my goal pretty rapidly,though I suspect I'll probably hit another plateau (at least) before I get there. BMI is now 24.6. A bit more into the normal range. Just seven pounds and a bit to go. It's hard to believe that I started this process weighing 209 (almost) pounds more than I do now.

Edited to add: I hadn't looked at my weight history for a few days. I've just noticed that I'm out of the green and into the blue. Does this mean that I can now join the Blue Man Group? Wow!
171.2 lb Lost so far: 165.8 lb.    Still to go: 3.2 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Blue Man Group - lol - glad you haven't lost your sense of humour with all that weight! Congrats, its really commendable that you can lose weight while being off sick, its just not the 'norm' at all. Very happy for you. Amazing. So glad you have the type of job where you can get the sick time and take the sick time with an easier mind. Wow, off until March, that's a long time but just think by the time you go back you will be at goal and maintaining. Hope you can begin light exercise soon, you were very into exercise before you got sick. Hope you aren't too bored. Take care and continue to get better and better.

One of my colleagues, and the one who is carrying a lot of the administrative load while I'm off, actually urged me to stay off till April, in the interest of my health. I do worry about it. But I also got a get-well-soon card from the Provost when my medical leave papers went in,and that might be a broad hint (especially the "soon" part). At the same time, I need to think about building my strength up, since I am tired of feeling weak (a day out really tired me). When I lose my sense of humour I'm really in a bad way. I know I'm doing well when I can inflict a truly horrible pun on someone who can appreciate it.
