Weigh in #8

The time has come again. This week was a bit blah in terms of results. On St. Patrick's Day I indulged a bit, but not too badly. I think it is more that my body is getting used to my diet and that I only exercised once this week. I have to do better that if I want to keep my numbers moving down at the rate I want them to be. I don't think this week's results are bad by any stretch of the imagination, just not as good as I wanted. Here are the results:

Current Weight: 401 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 3.8 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 39.2 lbs

As I said these are good results. In the seven weeks I have been working I am averaging over 5.5 pounds a week weight loss. That is a hard pace to keep up in a marathon like this, but I don't want to stagnate either. I really wanted to get under 400 this week, but I know that next week I will and that I will hit 40 pounds down, so that is something to look forward to.

The weather here in Chicago was really nice the second half of this week, so I had the chance to get outside a bit, but today it is in the mid 30s and snowing, so there is no telling what the weather will be. At least I have some indoor exercise options so I have no excuses. My next goal is to lose 11 pounds over the next 11 days. The end of this month will mark roughly two months since I started the blog and my weight loss journey. I would love to be down 50 pounds by April. It is a tough goal, but as long as I am setting intermediate goals I feel I should shoot high. I also have to get ahead a bit because I have my wisdom teeth out Monday April 5 and I will not be able to eat normally for a few days after that. I may lose weight because I will not be eating much or I may gain weight because of disruptions to my metabolism, but that is one of those things that is out of my control. I just want to put myself in the best position I can so that disruptions like that have a minimal effect on me. I think it is good practice for the unexpected interruptions to do the best I can to prepare for the ones I see coming.

That is all I have for this time. I work today, so I am going to whip up some grub and get on my way. See you next time on The Amazing Shrinking Actor.
