Seeing Results

Not that I've been obsessing over my weight these last few months, I've just wondered if I'd actually lose any weight with 2011 in 2011.  In the last 45 days I've traveled from DC to Guam to Saipan back to Guam again to Saipan then on to Fiji and back to Saipan before finally returning to DC.  I haven't stepped on a scale in all that time.

The first thing I did when I got home was take a shower.  Man, sitting on a plane for all those hours sure builds up a stink.  The second thing I did was step on my scale, followed by this quick photo.

If you can ignore the giant blister on my right toe, you can see that I've dropped to 201.1 lbs.  That makes me smaller than the last time (or was it the second to last time) I tried losing weight.  I'm literally skinnier than I've been in years -- and in all honesty, I'm still pretty fat!

The next big milestone will be getting under 200.  I haven't been that light on my toes since at least the middle of 2008, maybe late 2007.

So I ran 4 miles today, bringing my total miles logged for 2011 to 175.5. With 300 days left in the year, I have 1835.5 miles to go before I reach my goal of running 2011 miles in 2011.

In other news, I was able to spend a few days on Saipan after the Fiji trip, but before returning to DC.  This visit was all about relaxing and spending time with Edz.  I did see some people, though.  Gordon Salas made me this great sinahi and I picked it up on my last day.

That same night I also saw some of my favorite Beautify CNMI people.  Beautify CNMI turns 5 years old next month and we had fun reminiscing on all the good times.

Way to go on the weight loss, Angelo! And how can I get a sinahi? Does he take orders?

As far as I know Gordon is the only person carving them on Saipan. There are also a few guys making them on Guam. I'm sure Gordon could take an order from the Chamorro nation's most prominent blogger (I'm the most popular since ever since, if you care to know). I'll hook the two of you up on email. Or Facebook.
