Not the Biggest Loser, but a loser nonetheless

Well, it's my Friday weigh in and I'm not necessarily happy about the result, but then I'm not sad either...

Oh OK, I am happy. Kind of.

I recorded a loss of 500 grams. Half a kilogram.

I know the weekly examples of weight loss on shows like the Biggest Loser are not realistic, nor are the reactions of the contestants, who appear to be unhappy and driven to tears if they don't lose upwards of 3, 4 or 5 kilograms.
I mean, really.... What's not to be happy with a loss?

But in everyday life, where you're not devoting every waking hour focusing on your body and how much of it you're going to lose that week, then 500 grams is pretty darn good. It's two kilograms a month if it continues at this level, and that would mean I'd be well on my way to achieving my goal weight next year. Yes, 2010.

A loss is a loss...that's all that matters.
