Weigh in #3

It's gonna be a short one today since I have to sweep off my car to go to my show but I think it was another positive week. I had a cold most of the week so I only got one really good day of exercise in, but I think that day was a model for what I should do three times a week for now. I did about 20 minutes on the treadmill and 15 minutes with the weight machines on my upper body. I think this combo will keep my heart rate up and burn calories while building muscle mass that burns calories constantly. I have been weighing myself nearly every day to give myself as accurate a calorie goal as possible and I noticed that after I had exercised the benefits on my weight loss extended several days out. That turned what looked at first like a disappointing week into a pretty good one. So, here are the numbers

Current Weight: 425.2 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 6.4 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 15 lbs

Though I wanted to lose more than 7 pounds this week I think considering I was sick I had a good try at it. Fifteen pounds in two weeks is something I am proud of. This week I am going to focus on meeting my exercise goals and further reducing my sodium intake, which is still higher than I would like. I'm off to the show. I love it when a plan comes together.


  1. 15lbs is definitely something to be proud of! Huzzah!
