I’m switching it up this week. Instead of looking at the numbers on the scale, I’m going to post my body fat percentage which is 31% as of the last time I had it professionally checked. I knew my body fat would be high, and was actually expecting it to be a lot higher, but [...]
I lost another 3.4 lbs this past week making my total weight loss so far 66.6 lbs lost. That’s a weird number..666. This past week was a good one. I was able to get myself on video performing a chin up, some burpees, and I’ve begun wearing clothes that I haven’t worn for years. The weight loss chart isn’t looking bad either, the downward trend continues for another week! YES!
I lost 3.6 lbs after another week of wondering if I would lose any weight at all. I went through the past 7 days thinking that I would be regaining all the weight I’ve lost to date. Why do I think that way? I think it’s because I am new territory. I’ve never lost this much weight or weighed this low while making a full blown effort to lose weight. In the past, I’d workout, play football, and eat whatever the hell I wanted. Now I can’t do that. So it’s been a whole new road for me. I suppose I’m a little scared of yo-yoing back to the 300 lbs. YIKES!
Week two of being under 300 lbs. Another week and another few pounds lost. This time I lost 3.4 lbs, much less than the 10+ lbs from last week, but it’s right around where I want to be on a weekly basis. I think at this point I can consistently lose 2 to 3 lbs a week with no sweat. Well, I need to sweat but you know what I mean.
Small weekly loses are better for me in the long run than huge loses. My total lost so far is at 59.6 lbs. That’s 60 lbs in my book. 60 mutha freaking pounds I lost. Back in the day losing 60 lbs was a major thing for me, or any I knew for that matter. But here I am about halfway to my goal and 60 lbs doesn’t seem like anything to me. How times change…
I finally broke the 300 lb plateau I’ve had since I started this blog. I’m in the 200′s now. It was time for my weekly weigh-in this morning and although I felt confident that I would drop weight, I was not expecting to be down a staggering 10.6 lbs this week! That’s right! I dropped down below 300 lbs for the first time in many, many years. I don’t quite know how to react except to keep on doing what I am doing so that I can reach my goals each week.
