We are having a good run right now!!!! Woohoo! I can’t hide my excitement. This weight loss has been really slow-going for the both of us and after the creeping on the scale and even the recent gain, it feels good that we are seeing some real movement. On to the numbers!
Food: How’d We Do?
Khaleef: The ill effects of the Crohn’s attack are pretty much behind me, so I have been able to eat normally for the last couple of weeks. Because of that, it’s been easier to hit my calorie goal for the day, but that also means that I am getting hungry earlier and I have to be careful with snacks throughout the day.
Sherrian: Well, the first week that I saw loss is because I ate pretty well. I’ve been having a lot of soup and then roasted chicken with salad for dinner. Then last week, I dealt with a bit of migraine pain so I couldn’t cook and my eating suffered. We ate out a few times. I actually hated it. I am looking forward to getting back on track so I can keep moving forward.
Exercise: How’d We Do?
Khaleef: Since changing my steps goal back to 5,000 per day, I have been able to hit my goal 5 days in each of the last 2 weeks! The next step is getting on the recumbent bike and using the exercise ball I got as a Christmas gift.
Sherrian: I haven’t exercised really with everything going on. My migraines were pretty bad and then fatigue and body pain were there when the headaches weren’t. (Yes, exactly the same as last time)
You Want To See Our Faces, Don’t You?
Of course you do. We posted a video on our YouTube weight loss channel talking about our weight, getting a new start, and our goals for the upcoming week. Watch the videos below:
Khaleef here: The last time I weighed myself the scale hurt me by reading 307.8. This week (actually, it was last week since I wasn’t able to get on the scale this week) the scale read 303lbs. That means I lost 4.8lbs in the last 2 weeks!
Sherrian: I lost 5 lbs over the last couple weeks! .2 lbs over you-know-who *cough* *cough*, but since this is NOT a competition, I am just really happy with the loss! I am down 10 lbs FINALLY and I am excited to keep going.
You Want To Lose What?
You read that title correctly. We want to lose 250lbs combined. Once we are both comfortable with sharing our weight, then we will talk about how that goal breaks down between the two of us.
We have now lost 30.8lbs as a couple and have 219.2lbs to go in order to hit our goal.
So now this blog has turned into the story of us losing 250lbs while paying off over $100k of debt at the same time!
Next Week’s Focus:
Sherrian: Exercise! Exercise! Exercise! I know I sound like a broken record, but I am going to keep trying!
Fat Guy (Khaleef is boring): I still want to get at least 5,000 steps in at least 5 days, and I am trying hard even with this frigid weather and 25-30 inches of snow on the ground. A friend gave me an exercise ball for Christmas so I can try to do exercises that strengthen my core without added strain on my back, and I also plan to do work out on the bike at least once in the week.
