Thanks, Pandemic!

My Weight

According to my blog I’ve cared about my weight for the last 15 years ago, ever since I realized I was 383 pounds and wanted to be… not 383 pounds. The good news is that I’ve managed to keep about 120 under that for over a decade. Hurrah!

The bad news? Well, if you look at the chart above you can see that over 2020 my weight trended upward (the dotted line is the overall trend-line… which goes down. I included it because it made me feel good and this is my blog. So deal with it!). I’ve gained about 25 pounds or so over the last year, which is less than ideal.

As I looked into this I wanted to figure out why I might have gained this weight when I’ve been pretty good about maintaining my weight around 235 pounds or so for awhile. I imagine it might have everything to do with:

  • Global Pandemic Stress
  • Working from home for the last 11 months, with access to all things delicious
  • Worrying about Trump getting re-elected
  • Celebrating Biden getting elected
  • Worrying about armed insurrection

It has been a year, people!

Anyway, I’ve decided I need to get back on track. This is a little way to hold myself publicly accountable. I’ve set a goal weight of 230 pounds. I think that’s do-able, especially since I’m going to give myself until 2022 to get there. Should be easily doable!
