Weekly Weigh-In: Maintaining

Current weight: 233.4 pounds
Since last weigh-in: +0.4 pounds

As long as I don’t get too out of control during this period, I’m okay. Just got to stay reasonable, and then I can refocus once I’m done with the bar.

Weigh-In: Recharging the batteries

Current weight: 233 pounds
Since last time: +18.2 pounds <– 2+ months ago!
Total weight loss: 94 pounds

Well, that sucks. I’ve had a good hiatus though, so it’s time to really jump back on the weight loss train and get in a groove again.

The girlie says that I can blame her for spending time away from the blog and weight loss activities. And while to some extent that may be accurate, the truth of the matter is that I made a conscious decision to step back for a bit. Now I’m reaping the benefits of that decision.

I kind of fell out of walking every day, but I’ve slowly started to pick it up. I need to get back into a groove, though. Over this hiatus I’ve hiked Spencer’s Butte twice and Pisgah once. One of those Spencer’s trips was just this week for the birthday of the girlie’s mom. I also got in a walk this morning and couple last week. I even marathonned last week from school down 18th all the way to Chambers. I haven’t calculated the mileage, but for those not familiar with Eugene, that’s a pretty good walk.

I might find some pics to bridge the missing gap as far as progress pics go. We shall see. Here’s to regular updating again!

Weekly Weigh-In: .4 pounds lost

At the Firm Christmas Party

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 234.8 lbs.
This week: 234.4 lbs.
Change: -0.4 lbs.
Total Change: -92.6 lbs

After the delicious food I’ve eaten two nights in a row, first at the Aunt’s Christmas Party and then at the Firm Christmas Party, I’m just happy to be back in the 234s.  This morning’s walk is thanks to that.  I knew that after two Christmas parties and a week of not finals stress I probably wasn’t going to have a good weigh-in this week.  So I’m happy just to have maintained last week’s position.  I should be able to have a good week this week as I’m heading back to California on Wednesday and the change of scenery should give me another boost, hopefully.

Weekly Weigh-In: 1.6 pounds lost

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 236.4 lbs.
This week: 234.8 lbs.
Change: -1.6 lbs.
Total Change: -92.2 lbs

Still going strong! Just four weigh-ins left on the year and less than eight pounds to lose! I am definitely on pace.  After my big jump last week I figured that this week would be another toughie, but it has proven to be fairly similar to all my other recent weeks in Eugene.  I worked hard and ate well for a pretty average loss.  As long as it keeps going I don’t mind. I know I can put in the work. I was hovering between 236-238 all week so this weigh-in is pretty much on par with what I was expecting.

Oh, and it’s the holiday season now, so happy holidays!

Weekly Weigh-In: 6.2 pounds lost!

Wow, just freaking wow! And just like that I am back in this game!

I had a good week, despite going out. I chose wisely on the alcohol and eating fronts, I didn’t snack, and I enjoyed eating without overindulging.  All in all, the keys to a successful week on the eating front.  I also, of course, was able to exercise every day which always helps.  I got in a good run or walk every morning, and I put in a herculean effort on the Turkey Trot.  My final time was 38:08.

I was starting to think I was going to be stuck in the 240s, so I’m really glad to have moved out of them!  Onward to 100 pounds lost.  I should be able to make my goal on time now, as long as I don’t get too stressed in the coming onslaught of papers and finals.
