October 1

It's the first day of the government shutdown and I'm working on manipulating my schedule within the confines of a furlough to get the time off that I want. It's kind of a pain in the backside, but I'm not too bad at working the schedule and not too unhappy if I actually have to show up for work. All-in-all, I've still got a pretty good gig.

Weight-wise, September was a very successful month! I start October at 230.6 pounds. That puts me at losing nearly 28 pounds since the beginning of June (258.0). I hit the last two weeks pretty hard as far as diet goes and also managed to up the output (exercise) a little bit. I'll keep up with the better eating, but will bring my intake back up to a more sustainable level. I hope to continue with the exercise, but that is truly the more challenging part of health and weight management. I'm not going to make big plans for a big loss in October. I'll be happy with a pound or so per week and would like to see 225 by the end of the month.

Have a great October!

John, that extensive weight loss must have taken discipline of iron!
