Wk 84 Weigh In

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Happy Saturday everybody, I hope you are all feeling well this weekend. As for me, I think I'm getting over the cold I had a few days ago, thankfully it never got too bad; sore throat and stuffy head mostly. All I have now is a slightly runny nose, so not too bad.

I've been on my weight loss / get healthy pilgrimage for 17 months now, all of it here on Spark. My first week I decided to write a blog post and I've written one every week since, which I feel is a good thing because it lets me put on virtual paper what happened to me during the week. It also gives insight into who I am to anybody who wants to take the time to read them. I believe it was a good habit to get into. Sometimes I don't write much and other times I may write too much, it just depends on how I feel at the moment that I sit down to do it. But the one thing that has remained throughout each and every blog post is the fact that I write honestly, I lay out my screw ups as well as my accomplishments. I am imperfect, take me as I am!

It is in this spirit of honesty that I must now say that I had a good week :) I bet you thought something else was coming, didn't you? Although I felt pretty terrible all week I still got some gym time in, albeit not a lot, but I did get a couple of hours in. I also was careful with my diet, kept my calories in check and drank lots of water. It all paid off for me this week.

Let's look at the numbers, shall we?

Weight : 214.4
Lost : 2.6
Total : 102.8

a 2.6 lb loss this week! I'd say that's excellent (of course being sick might have made it a little easier, I wasn't ever 'really hungry'). Now that I'm writing this however, I'm getting hungry! My son and I will be heading out for pizza in a little while and I will have my usual large salad, some pizza and a Pepsi. It's a weekly celebration!

So that's it, my blog for this week. Enjoy yourself out there people, be safe and warm and have a great weekend.

    Wow! Great loss this week! Congrats! Your hard work paid off!

    Glad you're feeling better, Ken. I've had a sore throat myself the last two days and am hoping it doesn't turn into a full-blown cold. Sucking on my vitamin C drops and hoping for the best.

    I, too, have been reading weekly! Your journey is very inspiring and it helps to know others are in the same boat - ups, downs, celebrations, slip-ups... Many thanks for sharing your all its honesty!

    Hope you enjoyed your pizza and pepsi. Here's to another great week!
