Shrinking

Published by at 11:56 am under Health,The Boy,The Man

I’ve been using the My Fitness Pal app since May. The Man’s been using it longer, and he’s down 50 or 60 pounds this year. I can’t remember which it is, but I know that he’s in 30″ waist pants, and he says that hasn’t happened since high school. I have traditionally been the person who refused to count calories, wasn’t interested in portion sizing, and didn’t diet mostly because it was too complicated and I didn’t want to learn to cook new (potentially gross) food. Well, MFP basically takes all of my objections and throws them out, because it’s easy. So I didn’t really have a leg left to stand on. I decided to try it and see what happened, and if I hated it, I could just stop.

Well, as of Monday I’m down just over 14 pounds. I went down a pant size, which is a nice change, because for the past few years, I’ve only gone up. I can see the difference in my face, arms, and calves. It’s rather nice. My initial goal is to get down to 160 pounds, and I’m well on my way.

In other health related news, The Boy got his last Hep A booster yesterday, so he’s done with vaccines until age 4. Well, except for his flu shot. He got that one, too, and apparently we have to go back in a month for the second one. That will be a yearly occurrence, unless zombies.
