The bloom is off the rose. There's a lot of work ahead, and the initial exuberance is starting to wear off. I'm becoming more likely to skip a daily walk given the opportunity and I nearly skipped the run today. What's more, I've discovered that the weight losses thusfar have been illusory. Doing a daily weigh-in revealed that my weight will fluctuate in the 230-235 pound range without too much prompting.
