Weight Watcher's week #1 results.

This week I lost 8.6 pounds.

Let me say that again - this week I lost 8.6 pounds. I weigh less than an eighth of a ton for the first time in a long time. While I don't expect to lose this amount every week, I feel it was a good start.

I like saying it so here it goes again: This week I lost 8.6 pounds and now weigh less than an eighth of a ton.

Of course it won't matter if I just put the weight back on and this week is looking like it will be a challenge. On one hand I've got an open water swim followed by a 2hr ride (where I'll preview the Mighty Hamptons Bike Course) and on Sunday a 9 mile run. On the other hand I'm hosting an end of summer barbeque with friends on Saturday and TeamRockstar is going to the US Open to watch some tennis on Monday.

MrsRockstar commented that I may weigh less now that when we got married those many moons ago. I don't know if that is true or not but it is a good thought. A few more pounds and I'll know that it is true. I also know that continued focus on my body composition is one of the keys to my athletic success.

Rock on.

On the other hand I'm hosting an end of summer barbeque with friends ...

Two words: Barbecued tofu.

If that doesn't keep you retching for the rest of the week and give you that sleek heroin-chic lookit-me-I-just-got-ouuta-a-concentration-camp look I'll ... I'll ...

... eat a block of barbecued tofu.

I'm that sure it'll work.

Good job on the big loss! Keep up the good work!
