Week #3 Review and Weigh-In

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

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 emoticon

    Nice work man! You and I are starting/started at similar weights and are both in the beginning of our journeys. There will be stops and detours, but as long as we keep moving forwards, we'll get there. We got this.
