Week of 07-01 through 07-07 in the year of our Lord 2011
This is the first weigh-in of the rest of my life. Here are the results for week 9:
Today: 298 lbs.
Last Week: 302 lbs.
Week Difference: -4 lbs.
Total Loss: 36.6 lbs.
Well I fell short by 1.1 pound! Ha! My goal was to be under 297 so that I would weigh less than I have in recorded history. That is ok though. I am fine with it for now. The biggest news is that I am under 300 lbs. That, to me, is a huge milestone. I was only under 300 for a very short period during my MUSC program stint and then it all went to hell. I am actually starting to feel a little different. I have an upcoming post about needing a new belt because the one I have been using for 10 years is now too big. I don’t really know how to explain it specifically, but I think I am sleeping much better and I think I feel more healthy. Not really sure.
One thing that I can measure though is that people are talking. I may not be able to see all of the changes happening to me, but other people are noticing. I have had at least 4 people this week stop mid sentence to tell me that I look like I have lost a dramatic amount of weight. I don’t think of it as dramatic. I think of it as necessary. But people are definitely noticing. At church last week a guy who I was in a small group with had to take a double take as he didn’t immediately recognize me. Granted he is an older guy so maybe that was what it was (just kidding Kurtz!).
Well anyway, I am feeling pretty good. I am still getting irritated easily but it seems to be mainly around supper time and I always feel better after i eat. I am working hard at the gym and doing cardio daily now. I have been able to find foods that are healthy and filling and haven’t had any problems with junk temptation. I am loving it.
Here I am now. Do you think I look different? Only thing I notice is a raging farmers tan.
I am the brute squad.
Until next week’s weigh-in,
I am putting down the kettle corn, and picking up the kettle bell.
