Weigh-In Results

I just finished Week 4 Day 1 of C25k.  It's starting to pick up in a big way.  I went from walking half the time to walking a third of the time.  I'm really starting to feel like a runner.

It's Monday night and I'm regretting eating out every meal this weekend.  Every single meal was either at a restaurant or the hotel's continental breakfast.  I ate pizza, fries, french dips, and lots of diet coke.  I felt gross.  Just gross.  There wasn't a lot I could do about it though.  We were cleaning out my grandma's house and we couldn't use the kitchen because it was getting packed up too.

I tried really hard to make the best of a bad situation and order a reasonably healthy option at every opportunity.  I had a few salads rather than fries.  I had chicken instead of burgers.  I even skipped out on a chance to have a Dairy Queen blizzard.  I feel like I exercised a lot of self-restraint, but I wasn't sure if it would be enough.

Let's take a look at how I did.




YUSSS!!!  I lost 3.9 pounds this week!  That makes 32.9 pounds total.  I'm still on a bit of a bump from being sick, but I'm headed back down. 

I realized recently that I've stalled enough in my weight loss that in order to make my goal, I have to lose more than 2 pounds a week every week until the end of November.  As of this weigh in, I have to lose an average of 2.16 pounds a week to stay in the game.  I can do this and I will.  I am losing 100 pounds in a year.

  2. Nice! I was a little skeptical when I read that you ate out so much, but 3.9 is a great loss for the week.

    Keep it up. You should be able to do the 2.16 pounds per week. Just stay focused.

  4. Way to go on the running!! :) Running is tough, and getting started is the most difficult time! Do you have a goal for when you are running your 5k?? You know I've already told you I'm doing it with you! :)

  10. Awesome job! Keep it up. For reference, to lose 2.16# per week you will need to have a deficit of 7992 calories each week. So you need to burn 7992 calories more than you eat. So your BMR + working out - food = deficit. That has helped me a ton in losing weight. I have 49# to lose and so far have done 20# since February. You can do it!
