How I spent July August 3, 2015

Posted by Mike C. in Personal.

It’s been a month since my last post. I didn’t attend any concerts and couldn’t think of anything to write…until now.

Here are some highlights from July 2015:

July 9: I helped my father Bill bring three old CRT TVs to the curb for pickup the following morning:




We had been meaning to get rid of those TVs for a long time. Dad and I were glad we finally did.

July 11: I attended my friends’ Mike and Laurie’s eldest daughter Elle’s 4th birthday party. Here’s the dessert spread:

Elle officially turned 4 on July 13.

July 16: I spent the afternoon visiting my cousin Samantha and her eight-month-old daughter Antonia. In the evening, I went to a Mexican restaurant in North Wantagh to celebrate my sister Lauren’s birthday. There was Carvel ice cream cake waiting for us at home:

July 18: Birthday week concluded with family friend Rick’s 60th birthday party. There were three birthday cakes: a yellow cake, a chocolate cake, and a strawberry cake:

July 29: 2 1/2 weeks of watching what I eat, but not starving myself, allowed me to reach my lowest weight in 20 years: 132.6 pounds. It was down 100.8 from my peak on January 2, 2007, of 233.4 pounds. I doubt I’ll stay that low, but as long as I’m below 145, I’ll be satisfied.

I hope to have more to write about this month. If not, I’ll whip up another post like this early in September.

It wasn’t easy losing the weight, and keeping it off is just as hard. I originally lost 99.4 pounds by March 2008, then the weight crept back up to 173 by August 2013. That’s when my latest weight loss/maintenance began.

keeping it off is harder than losing. i gave up at 190, i ate everything i wanted and hit 280. no fun, but losing is just too much hassle. good job. i was big anyway, 190 is skinny for me, but 280 is stupid. although all the kids like to rub my tummy, they think a genie will appear.
