Weight goal in sight?

My doctor has informed me that I can stop losing weight right now, and he certainly doesn’t want to see me below 170 lbs. His hand-waving metric is waist size; anything less than 36″ is fine by him, and I’ve dropped from having my belly hang over a 38″ pant to fitting comfortably inside a 33″. Actually, looked at that way, 35 lbs is even more impressive to me!

Sadly, my blood pressure is still slightly high; I’m not one of those lucky people for whom weightloss alone does the trick. Formal exercise come the springtime.

Anyway, I’ve got two weeks left on the current @work series, so I’ll finish that, which should take me down to 179, and then go onto maintenance. I figure trying to stay between 175 and 180 gives me a nice comfort zone… We’ll see how well that actually works :-)
