Going down in weight again

Monday, March 21, 2011

So last week Sunday I weighted in at my mom's house and weighted 286.5

Today I stepped on the scale and am 273

That is a loss of 13.5 pounds in a week and one day. Granted it is from being sick and it is not inches I am seeming to be loosing. My throat is still in a lot of pain and over the counter medicines are not working. So my mom said it may be my tonsils since they were not taken out as a kid. Then yesterday my mom looked in my mouth and said yea your tonsils are swollen. So I guess the next day I have off work I have to go pay a fortune to some dr to tell me to go take prescriptions which is going to cost even more that I don't have. I am just hoping I don't need surgery on them. I can't find any insurance.

    I did do 10 min of cardio exercise and a little streanght training with free weights this morning because I had energy and my sick baby was still sleeping and my son was already off on the bus to school. I know muscle burns more fat, so I am hoping to build a little muscle each week so the weight will continue to come off. I have a lot more to get rid of.

    13.5 is a lot of weight to lose in 8 days. Granted, it was due to being sick and, like you said, was likely to fat loss.

    But, perhaps, by adding some daily strength training to your exercise routine, you might be able to maintain that. Just alternate muscle groups on a daily basis. I'm not sure what (or, if) you're already doing related to strength training.

    I'm actually doing very little, personally. But, I try to do 3 minutes a day 3-4x a week, and would like to increase that. If I alternate things like arms, legs and abs, I could easily do it 6-7x a week, and, on some days, more than one thing.

    Hope your tonsil stuff improves without surgery.
