Week 29

Mad some progress this week and even forced my scale to give up the magic number, 201.5 lbs representing 30 lbs lost! Hooray! Of course, I say forced because Saturday morning I was 202 lbs and after breakfast, a visit to the washroom, and a shower I weighed myself again and found I had misplaced the extra half pound. Whatever, I'll take it.

Its getting to the point where my "thin" clothes are getting too baggie for me, which is good, but I can't afford to replace my wardrobe, which is bad. So I make comprises by cinching my belt ever tighter and wearing my extra thin clothes which have a layer of dust three inches thick on them.

Week 28

I had a good week with good eating and lots of exercise, and it paid off Saturday with a new low of 202 lbs, putting me just a half a pound from 30 lbs lost.

Its also been a good week for people noticing and complimenting me on my slimmer form (albeit still fat) which is nice for the self esteem. Just need to keep up the effort with some good exercise this week. I wasn't feeling well yesterday so skipped exercising and felt guilty about it all day. Definitely going to hit the treadmill tonight but I really need to start running outside to get ready for the race I registered for in the fall.

SO MUCH PRESSURE!

Week 27

Ugh, still sitting at 205.5 lbs this week. Not getting enough exercise and too many cheats. Been doing better this week but still all out of sorts. Now that I'm back at work, I'm am going to get back on the treadmill and start to turn this ship around.

Weeks 25 and 26

Week 25 Saturday Weight: 205.5
Week 26 Saturday Weight: 203.0

Its been a crazy couple weeks of ups and downs and not huge progress. Too many special occasions with lots of delicious food accompanied by too many slip ups. Success has made me weak. I've been hovering around the 203-205 mark a lot and really need to buckle down, get some real exercise again, and get below 200 lbs.

Vacation is the worst for bad habits, fortunately I'm back at work next week.

Week 24

I got on the scale on Saturday morning after a week of doing well with my eating and getting back on the treadmill the day before and was pleased to hit a new low of 203.5 lbs. Then I had a pretty naughty weekend with lots of high callorie snacking at Greenbush with my family and then some questionable choices at home on Sunday with Kim's parents. Was more than a little shocked to see 207 Monday morning on the scale. YIKES!

Fortunately I suspect its one of those local highs and I'm working at bringing that back down. Try to get some more time on the treadmill as I practice for the 5km run I'm planning on doing this fall. This morning it was 206 already so I should be back in fighting form by the weekend. Can't afford that again if I want to hit 200 in July.

Week 23

I was very happy to come in at 204.5 this past weekend, but since then I've had no exercise and lots of stress as my Grandma passed away at age 92. I've got today off for the funeral so I worked extra hard to try and get ahead of my work instead of behind it. Gah. I hope things get less stressful next week.

Since the weekend I've been going a bit heavier rather than lighter. Right now I just hope to maintain my weight next Saturday.

Week 22

Progress!

Saturday I weighed in at 206 which is a new low for the weekly weigh in, but disappointing as I was hoping to eke out another half pound for the weigh in after a good week of exercise and eating within the goals.

But then Sunday I clocked in at 205 lbs and today I'm hitting 204.5 lbs! Now lost 27 lbs overall. Hope I can keep it off for the rest of the week until Saturday but knowing my luck I'll sit heavy that day. I should move my weekly weigh in to Monday.

Funny thing is that I had my monthly cheat day on Sunday. And still didn't gain. Can't count on that every time but sometimes things work out.

In other news, I'm going to sign up for a fall race to run 5 km. Its an effort to provide incentive for my work on the treadmill and get me to push the speed I move from fast walk to actual running.

Saturday weight: 206.0 lbs
