Weigh-in Results – Week 188
Guess what’s back? Weekly weigh-in results. The two week hiatus was nice as it’s a lot of work putting these together early Friday morning.
My Fitbit is MIA, so that is not back. Fitbit’s report will be back next week (even if I have to buy another one), along with a little something extra I’m adding to weekly weigh-in results. For now, here I am this morning after a great gym workout:
Today’s weight: 217.2 pounds
Total weight lost since January 2009: 127 pounds
Physical activity (daily average) over the last week:
Technically, that’s me after the gym and the shower the followed.
Obviously, at 217.2 pounds, I had a rough last couple of weeks. In fairness, the first week skipping my weigh-in (week 186) was abysmal, but I’ve redeemed myself this week. I actually reached about 224 pounds at the end of week 186.
Keeping things into perspective, though, it’s fairly easy (by just not watching what you eat!) to gain a lot of “temporary” weight. If you go from eating very little fast food to eating a lot of it, plus other foods that are high in sodium, your body can gain a lot of weight in a short period of time.
Regardless, I’m tired of this inconsistency. I’m back and more determined than ever to keep going. The gym has revitalized me — I love waking up at 4 AM and pushing my body to the limits again. I’ve made great progress this week.
I want to be able to say I lost 150 pounds. It’s not an arbitrary number; it’s simply around where I think my “final” weight will end up. It’s a good target.
Let’s shoot for it.
