Friday April 8th, 2011

So another couple of weeks have passed. Sorry about that. I've been in non-stop meetings for what feels like forever. Which caused me to miss a lot of days at the gym the past two weeks. Which in turn had me worried about stepping on the scale this morning.

But all the worry was for not.

I weighed in at 262.8 this morning. A loss of 1.4 pounds. Not spectacular, but not a gain either. Which I am extremely happy about. Getting ever closer to 15 pounds down. Just 2.8 to go.

You for sure won't hear from me next week.

So see you in two.

Weigh In

264.2. That's what it said on the scale this morning. A loss of 2.4 pounds.

And that makes 11 pounds lost so far.

11 pounds in a month and a half? I'll take that. Things were a little back and forth at the beginning but 11 pounds is a good, start.

Now I just have to keep it up.

I start week 5 of the couch to 5K program today and I'm really hopping my legs hold up. On the plus side, I might be able to run outside today.

On a related note:
Check out this amazing thing my friend Scott is doing at the Mall of America. For the next 30-days he will be living in a glass house while he tries to live life as healthy as possible. Talk about living your weight loss journey in the public eye. I wish him tons of luck!

See you next week.

Mega Weigh-In

So I've missed a few weigh ins. Ok more than a few. But just because I didn't post the results here, it doesn't mean that I've been avoiding the scale...or the gym.

I now present the first ever "Guess How Much I Weigh" Mega Weigh-In. One month of weigh ins in one scale crushing post.

Friday February 18th: 268.2

Friday February 25th: 267.6

Friday March 4th: 268.2

Friday March 11th: 266.8

As you can see it's been an up and down month, but the last two weeks things have been really coming together. This weekend I even weighed less on Monday then I did on Friday. That almost never happens.

The big news is I am back to running. I'm starting slow and trying out a couch to 5K program this time around. So far it's going well. I'm just finishing up week 3.

What I have noticed is running seems to be the miracle cure for weight loss, at least for me. I'm sure there are a lot of other factors, but as soon as I got serious about running again, the pounds have been sliding off...and staying off. And this week is shaping up to be a good one too. I have a feeling I'll be able to breeze past the 10-pounds lost milestone this Friday.

Tune in in two days to see if I make it.

267.2. A loss of .6 pounds. That was my weigh-in last Friday. Not bad considering I had a big steak dinner on Thursday night.

Onward and downward.

267.8. That's what it said on the scale this morning. A loss of 4 pounds.

It's been well over a year since I've written. I didn't abandon my weight loss efforts, but things definitely got away from me. I have no big answers and no excuses. I just let my focus wain and fell back into some bad habits.

The good news is I didn't readopt all my old habits. I've still been getting to the gym, and ... well I guess that's the one big positive.

But now I'm back. I've been working hard for the last 3 weeks and I've managed to drop nearly 10 pounds. And that is just the beginning.

My life is a lot busier than it was 2-years ago, so my posting will be less frequent, but my weigh ins will continue... and so will my weight loss.

See you next Friday.
