May 10, 2011: Starting Golf Lessons

Medifast Status: Day 8, Down ~9.5 lbs

I had my first Medifast check in today.  That took about an hour.  My ketone test said that I was losing too quickly and am risk of starving so I need to add a little bit back in to my diet to make sure that I remain burning fat rather than conserving calories.  My official weigh in there, which is a few pounds lighter than my weigh in at home and on a much better scale and with all of my clothes on, put my first week of weight loss at ten and a half pounds or one and a half pounds per day!  Pretty good results.  Now to keep it up.

Today I am starting golf lessons through La Cima.  Believe it or not, it has been twenty one years since I last took golf lessons.  When I was fourteen (I think that that is the right age) my parents got me golf lessons that summer (this would likely have been the summer of 1990) at the country club in Batavia.  That is when I learned to play golf and I used that learning experience for the rest of my golfing career.

When Dominica and I found out that I could get lessons through La Cima we decided that it was probably time for me to take lessons again.  I haven’t had a chance to play golf in nearly six years (maybe more, I can’t really remember) and I would really like to start leveraging our La Cima membership more and take advantage of the golf that we are already paying for.

I was in the office during the day and came home for lunch.  After work at five thirty I was off to the Grapevine Municipal Golf Course for my golf lesson from six until seven in the evening.  It was my first time heading up there so it took some work for me to find the course but I got there only a few minutes late despite some awful traffic.

The first class went really well.  It was fun and I learned a ton.  I improved significantly just in that one lesson.  I couldn’t believe how much better I was after just the smallest amount of instruction.  This is going to be very good for me.  I can’t wait to come back next week.

On the way home I hit Waffle House and picked up dinner for the girls.  Nothing that I can eat there.  Very sad.
