Progress Update 14

I've been on a pretty steady track of weight loss for the last couple of weeks, but the exciting news (for me) is that today's weigh-in was under 205, which is important because it's the lowest I've weighed in...I honestly don't know how long. It's almost certainly my lowest weight since college. In 2010, I was hovering around the 205 barrier for months, and never quite got under it, before eventually gaining back into the 250's

 My methods of measurement used to be slightly more crude. RIP, Wii Fit.

It's not just numbers, either - people are noticing, and I'm having to update my wardrobe because old clothes are just too big and look and feel too ridiculous. It's one thing to see numbers on a scale; it's another to have truly tangible results.

Perhaps the thing I'm proudest of, though, is that I'm actually within spitting distance of a goal I've had since early college - to get back under 200 pounds. I may not get there before the end of the year, but the fact I've made it this far means a lot to me.
