This morning was the third weigh-in. I felt pretty good about this week although I wasn't expecting much of a change in the scale.
The great news is that I stepped on the scale and I lost another 1.5 pounds. So my weight went down from 287 to 285.5. So I'm now down 6.5 pounds from when I started 3 weeks ago. I'm extremely happy with that. I honestly didn't think I was going to drop any weight this week.
Looking back at Week #3, I'm extremely pleased with my exercise. I walked 27.2 miles (my highest weekly total so far) and spent 230 minutes on the elliptical trainer (also my highest weekly total). My weight training went great, I hit the gym and got in weight training 3 times last week. I think the only muscle group that I didn't get to exercise was my shoulders, I'll get on them this week.
Week #3 food was pretty good. I had a couple heavy dinners and I messed up on lunch one day, but overall, I did pretty well. At some point, I want to get in the kitchen and learn some more healthy recipes.
So Week #3 was great. The main thing that I noticed this week was my increase in energy. I'm able to go to work, get in a lot of exercise and then come home and still feel ok.
Well, on to Week #4... But not before I update my weight loss ticker
