I haven’t posted since June about my plan to lose weight before the two weddings I’m participating in this December. That’s because I haven’t really done anything since early June. In fact, of the 17 pounds I lost from February – June I’ve gained back 4 of them.
But that’s okay, because this new job has enabled me to lose 1 pound since Monday. How? By having me on the opposite side of the office from my two bosses I’m forced to get up and walk over to their section no less than 100 times a day. I walk more in this job than I ever did at my old company. Add to that the fact that there is minimal snack food compared to my old job and scant time available to even each lunch, you end up with a net loss of one pound thus far this week.
I don’t know how long that will last, but I told Denis last night that I wouldn’t go back on South Beach until this current notion of weight-loss-through-work comes to an end. Once I’ve evened out and find a specific schedule in this job I’ll go ahead and do the two-week Phase 1 of SBD again to jump-start weight loss again. I think that will be in about six weeks, which is the estimated timeframe for my new cubicle to be put together and made ready for me.
