Guest Blogger--The big 5-0

If you have come here to read the wise words of my wife, you may be sadly disappointed. Today, I want to share what is going on in my weight loss journey. It's not just the unholypastormommy that is losin' it, I'm working at it too! I was going to write a couple of weeks ago when I hit the first big milestone but I got busy and the initial excitement wore off and I didn't get to it. Now I've hit another milestone and well, I want to say more than a Facebook status update will allow.

The big milestone of a couple of weeks ago was when my Wii Fit announced that I was overweight. How exciting! For so long I had to hear that dreaded word that I was obese. And I was excited to hear the word overweight. I think my Mii still puffs up too much but I can't control that. This morning I hit another significant milestone. Today when I weighed in, the scale read 239. This is significant because I honestly don't know when I weighed this much last but it was probably in college or when I lived at Holden or something. The other big thing is that I hit the big 5-0. I have lost 50 pounds since I began this weight loss journey! It is an absolutely amazing accomplishment and I don't know what is next. I still have a little more spare tire to lose but it looks more like a bike tire than the tractor tire it once was.

But, I would also like to say how much I miss my wifey. She is my partner in this journey and we are good for one another and we support one another and this whole being apart really stinks. Thursday will come but not soon enough.

I hope you don't mind my disruption in Sarah's blog but I had to share the news with someone.
