HMR Update

Well another week has gone by so that means it was weigh in day yesterday. I lost another 3.7lbs putting me at 288.4 which is just .4 shy of 50lbs total loss since January 9th. Starting in two weeks they'll move me from the "Core" class to the on going weight loss group so weigh ins will move to Wednesday nights.

HMR Update

Last night was another weigh in and I am now down a total of 45.9lbs since January 9th. I lost 3.4lbs last week. My current official weight is now 292.1 lbs. I'm fairly certain that the last time I was in this territory was college. I have about 6 weeks left before I'll transition to "real" food again so that I'm eating normally by the wedding in July. I would like to hit 275lbs (High School) before the transition, but we'll see how it goes.

RIP China

Today we are having to put our pet hamster China to sleep. She's been getting progressively worse and now she's not eating or drinking well and is not looking good at all.

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this animal.
By the power of your love,
enable it to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.
