Weigh-in for April 12: Unemployment

Current weight: 284.5
Difference from last entry: +3
Difference from 2008 starting weight (290.5): -6

So here is something that will come as a surprise to no one: being unemployed has not been condusive to losing weight. I have been unofficially unemployed since Monday, but the previous two weeks were preparing for unemployment, as I worked frantically to transition all of my responsibilities off to others during my two week’s notice. Work went well, I think: the two people who took over my duties should’ve had a pretty good heads up on how to do the job. Though, as my now ex-boss put it, how things go there is no longer my concern. I was able to keep myself busy for two weeks, but wasn’t able to put together two weeks of healthy eating. That’s the big take-away.

Though I do have to give myself credit for some good behaviors. I exercised on a consistent basis during my last two weeks on-the-job, due in large part to my walking buddy Diana. While I was eating too much, I was making mostly good food choices. And I only gained two pounds through that two week period. On a whole, those weren’t bad weeks at all.

This week? Well, that should probably be its own entry, which I’ll write later.
