I pulled out my old scale yesterday and re-weighed myself this morning - and it confirmed that I am indeed down ten pounds in the last month and a half. I took extra-long walks the last two days; on Wednesday, we had a special vote on two propositions, with both passing overwhelmingly. Since I already was going about three-quarters of the way to my polling station, I just extended the route to take it past where I vote. I did that same route again today since I'm not going to be walking tomorrow, and possibly not on Saturday or Sunday either.
The interruption to the schedule is because I'm going upstate for Cornell's Homecoming - or as it's known to those of the trombone persuasion, "Bonecoming." I'll be leaving around 5:30 tomorrow morning, in order to reach the Finger Lakes in time for our wine tour. It promises to be a fun time, although I know I'll give back some of the progress on weight I've made since August 7. But until then, I'll enjoy my team on the Thursday Night Football stage - and right now, with the Giants laying the wood on the Panthers, it is most enjoyable.
