Here are some milestones:
1) I had to unbutton a pair of pants in order to get into them. They were skinny jean style, but nevertheless, a milestone.
2) I did not have to get up to pee in the middle of the night. Probably didn’t drink enough water last night, but nevertheless, a milestone.
3) I weigh about 147. Better than 143. Did you know that you can get milk that is not homogenized? The cream floats to the top, and you have to shake it up before you pour it! This morning for breakfast I had a glass w/ two slices of pizza from last night (Oscars + wife, you know). And oatmeal. Oatmeal reduces cholesterol. Good thing I had those two cholesterol bombs to counteract that unsettling effect.
4) I added 10 lbs. to my barbell. I suppose now is the time to attempt adding muscle in lieu of fat. B/c currently there is NO fat on me. Hey, maybe Dad had a point when he referred to his bulging gut as ‘relaxed muscle’. B/c I am growing mine back, albeit not of the bulging variety. It’s, uh, muscle for men over 50.
