Date #2

So, my second date was definitely not as bad as my first. The cool thing is that he's a graduate student in physics. The uncool thing is that we had our date the day before the fourth of July which incited a very unsexy conversation about the velocity of fireworks. This conversation did not end. He was absolutely Forrest Gumpian about fireworks. My eyes basically glazed over. He was nice enough though. We took a nature walk and had a picnic, which was totally romantic. But a physicist isn't the Lothario that one would expect. He was really quite boring. If he asks me out, I'll probably go out with him again... Give him another chance.

In other news, I want to talk about my weight. Since I started this process, I am down 45.2 pounds exactly. I weigh 148.8 pounds now. My BMI is 30.1- which, according to the bmi charts, makes me just slightly obese. Now, here's my thing. The first 40 pounds really fell off and I did very little other than being conscious and mindful and listening to the download. There was no dieting, no hardcore exercising, no deprivation, none of that. But since then, I've really stabilized. I still have a good 25-30 pounds that I need to lose just to be at a healthy weight, but my weight seems to have settled. I'm not sure where to go from here. I've completely stopped binge eating thanks to the hypnosis... but I'm wondering what else I must do. I'm contemplating a diet of sorts, but I know that diets don't work and cause me to binge. I have to reconsider. I'll talk about it once I think about it some more. For now, I'm just going to continue as I am.
