And this is how much I weigh two weeks later.

Just like my life has been a rollercoaster of emotion the past month, so has my attempt to shed pounds, er, be healthy.

Unlike the typical peaks and valleys format of The Life Rollercoaster though, The Be Healthy Rollercoaster was mostly all speeding downhill, arms waving, huge smile, yelling in excitement.  Started at 187.  Got down to 181!

But then these things happened –

Saturday shopping at IKEA.  Damn you delicious Swedes and your buns.  Saturday Fear Experiment potluck.  Damn you good and ridiculously-generous cooks.

Ended at 184.

That’s ok, I’m not terribly upset because besides the Swedish Experiment hiccup, it wasn’t terribly hard.  I didn’t alter my exercise regimen at all, just limited myself to three regular-sized meals and a couple of healthy snacks per day.

According to random Ideal Weight and Height Chart, I should be 176 [no comment on how I’m ignoring that it says “144-176,” I can’t fathom anything below 170].  So that’s what I’m striving for.

Come April 9th, the date of the big Fear Experiment Show at the Park West, when I’m going to be hysterically funny in front of 700, I’m also going to be hysterically svelte.  I’m not sure what that means.  I hope it means less jiggle and being able to fit in the size 8 shorts that’ve been sitting in my closet, tags on, untouhced, for a year.

Onwards and upwards!
