Time for another update. When we last spoke I was down 8.2 pounds to 210 so I still had 11.8 pounds to go to reach my goal of 198.2 and 20 pounds lost.
Last week was a bit of a setback. I spent the week at a camp with 65 high school and jr highers from my church. These camps aren’t condusive to good eating so it was a week of not so heatlhy food. I kept my portions at the meals under control for the most part (i.e. one hamburger instead of 2 hamburgers and a giant hot dog, 3 tacos instead of 6 tacos, etc.) but there was more snacking than I would have liked. But my activity level was pretty high and I did a fair amount of running around so it wasn’t a total disaster. By the end of the week when I got home I was up to 214.
Time to get back to eating well. I made it through the 4th of July without any gluttonous indulgences and over the past few days the scale has been showing smaller and smaller numbers which is good to see. The extra pounds I put on last week quickly went away.
So I step on the scale this morning and I saw the smallest number yet: 207.8. That is a total loss of 10.4 and I still have 40 days or so to go. I don’t think it will be too hard to drop another 10 pounds if I keep eating well and walking or running 10-15 miles a week.
Total Weight Loss: 10.4
