Diet milestone time: I've dropped to 200 pounds again (for you metric types, that's 200/2.2 kilograms -- I ain't doing the math for you). Not only does this get me back to the sane side of a nice, round number, it also means I'm more than halfway to my goal now: Started at 236, aiming for 175. Thirty-six down, twenty-five to go.
I've finally gotten to the point that I don't want to chow down every chance I get; when I was buying the car Saturday I realized that I hadn't eaten all day (I usually get some breakfast at about 2:00, but I was buying the car instead). Factor in having to go into work to publish something to the web (it was closer than going home, from the VW dealer) and I didn't wind up eating until close to 9:00 at night.
Time to inhale some food, right? Not really: After an appetizer I barely finished half of the (admittedly large) dinner I ordered. Same thing happened at breakfast today; I wound up leaving half my French toast on the plate when I was done.
In a way I'm glad, since that makes it easier for me to stay at my target weight. On the other hand I almost feel like I need to start ordering off the children's menu.
