Good morning my darlings. What a week it has been. I was so certain that I could catch up from time lost last week and then just as I neared the finish line, my computer decided to trip me up. There are still issues, so things may be a little bit on the wonky side for a little while, but hopefully the weirdness can be dealt with and not cause too much of an issue.
We shall see.
However the point of this post isn’t to talk about my computer issues, but rather my continuing weight loss journey. At this point I am making slow and steady progress. Despite skipping the gym yesterday, I was very pleased with the scale this morning. To be honest I wasn’t expecting that bit a jump as I have mostly been focusing on deadlines this week. It is nice to know that once I have the system in place I don’t have to focus on the details. I know soon my body will adjust to the new system and my weight loss will slow. Then I’ll have to tweak it to continue. But at the moment, I am chugging along nicely.
For a while I was extremely frustrated as no matter what I did, the weight wasn’t coming off. I was not happy to put in that much sweat for so little results. But I think now I am doing well. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it, but for those just tuning in, I am not doing any specific diet. I am simply monitoring calories and getting in exercise. For my exercise I took advantage of my gym’s meet with a trainer for free policy and met with one of their trainers. He was very good with helping me design a slow but steady system that I can maintain while still getting my work done.
Oddly that was kind of interesting to get him to consider when I talked to him. At first he didn’t seem to realize that I had anything else going on in my world but working out and going to the gym. It was an odd conversation that actually made me think “Do people take leaves of absence from work in order to lose weight?”
It was a strange thought, but that seemed to be his belief. we got there in the end, but it was somewhat amusing to see how a trainer’s mind works. Or at least this trainer. and the system he helped me with is currently working, so no complaints.
Starting weight: 246 lbs
Last week’s weight: 218.4 lbs
This week’s Weight: 216.8 lbs
Lost this week: 1.6 lbs
Lost thus far: 29.2 lbs
So despite everything my journey progresses. As Always I hoped to be further along than this, but I accept that it is going to take time to get into a healthy range. For now, just getting in more exercise and watching what I eat is getting me healthier so No complaints. After all I didn’t add the weight on in a week, it certainly isn’t all going to slide off in a week.
Over all though, I am happy with my slow and steady progress.
