Well, not quite as much as I had hoped but not a whole lot less than I was aiming for. My wife is starting to catch up now so I had better get things moving! But we're going to Vegas this weekend and I plan on having fun, so next week may be a disappointment … Continue reading 9-7-2013 – 274.8 Pounds
Well, can't argue with those numbers! This is eating (mostly) at a 500 calorie deficit. So it still is a bit strange. I SHOULD be losing a pound per week but over the last two I've dropped quite a bit. But - again - I won't be arguing. I'm getting closer and closer to my … Continue reading 8-31-2013 – 275.6 Pounds
Well, not sure what this proves. Went 4 weeks without losing weight and then ate at a lower deficit for a week and lost. Maybe it proves the "refeed" topic I posted about earlier. Now I have to decide if I stick with the 500 deficit or adjust further. Either way, very happy.
So I decided to add something to the side of my blog here that keeps track of some "milestones" including how many miles I've walked, how many pounds I've lifted and (of course) how much weight I've lost. I may add other things to it, but we'll see. It sure involves a lot of math! … Continue reading Milestones
So I am weighing today because I will be camping right after I get off of work, and it ain't good! I am chalking it up to the fact that I normally sleep in on Saturday (when I weigh) and I am up 4 hours earlier so I haven't been able to void my system. … Continue reading 8-9-2013 – 282.8 Pounds
Well, another big week! And I don't feel nearly as bad about it since I've been strength training as well. I'll take it! It also proves that when I don't do "extra" exercises such as walking at work every day that I can still lose a lot of weight. I did do some moving around … Continue reading 7-27-13 – 281.4 Pounds
Well, as usual I weighed myself six times and moved the scale around just to make sure, and every time it was the same. Maybe I need to increase (yet again) what I eat. I currently shoot for a 1500 calorie deficit. Maybe need to bump it to 1000. Also going to measure and maybe … Continue reading 7-20-13 – 286 Pounds (Over 50 Gone)
Not sure what to think of this loss exactly as I got a new scale and am skeptical that the old and new one were the same. Now, I did check the new scale for accuracy by weighing gallons of water and it was always within about 0.2 pounds which probably is the container the … Continue reading 7-6-2013 – 295.0 Pounds
Oh yeah, made my first goal and more. Under 300 pounds by July. Very exciting day today for me, and for my lovely wife who also had a nice loss. We are in this together and will accomplish it together.
So I got a couple extra days last week since I was camping, but that just means that I get a couple LESS days this week. Still, I am right where I want to be... if I can lose 0.6 pounds this week then I'll be under 300 pounds before July 1st. It hasn't been … Continue reading 6-24-2013 – 300.5 Pounds
