Another minor milestone

Two weeks ago I wrote that I weighed in below 200 pounds for the first time in almost six years. That was just one scale measurement, and the moving average to I use to smooth out the variation in day to day measurements is what I consider my “real weight”. When I report how much weight I lost in one of my monthly goal updates it is the difference between the moving average at the end of the month and at the end of the previous month.

But by its nature this average lags behind my daily measurements, and it took a little while to catch up. Yesterday, two weeks after my first weigh in below 200 pounds, the average caught up. I’m under 200 by every measure I use.

And this morning I recorded the single lowest weight of my adult life. I still have a ways to go, but my hard work is paying off.
