Weigh In

It’s time for another weigh in. Before we get to that, let me give a brief recap of my week. There really isn’t a lot for me to tell, since I already gave you a midweek update when I posted about my trip to the doctor.

I continued to eat well and run every day. In fact, I made a video of my attempt to do a 4 mile jog, with limited walking “breaks” (I even make an embarrassing confession about body image):

I was really good this past week with my jogging workouts. I think I only missed one day, Sunday – my planned day off. I did very well with eating as well, and I was able to track every meal that I had with the exception of one (and I still know how many calories that was)!

I still hate running, but probably not as much as I did before. I think that once I am able to do my strength training, I will continue to run…maybe 3 or 4 times a week.

I am going to start making videos of my meals, workouts, weigh ins, and other things that come up regarding health and nutrition – I already have close to 60 videos up. With that said, I guess it’s time for a commercial for my YouTube channel. 😉

Anyway, on to the video and then to the numbers…

And here is a direct link to the video on YouTube, in case you are reading this via email. You can also see my attempt at a 5-mile jog in that video as well!

I have become a lot more active on YouTube (I’m posting daily videos now), Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, so be sure to connect with me there. I plan to post a lot of small updates, health tips that I learn, good articles, and other things that don’t warrant a full blog post, onto those sites. Be sure to leave comments so I know you’re there. Yes, I will bug you about it until you comply! ;-)

I was hoping that the scale would finally get in line with all of the hard work and discipline that I have been showing recently. Here are the numbers (if you want to see the details for all weeks, just click here)…

Now On To The Weigh In

Week 0 (First Weigh In) – 287

Week 4– 276.4

Week 8 – 266.6

Week 12 – 258.6

Week 16 – 256.0

Week 20 – 258.0

Week 24 – 253.8

Week 28 – 248.0

Week 33 – 250.2

Week 36 – 249.2

Week 37 – 246.0!!!

I lost 3.2 lbs over the past week! I haven’t seen a drop like that in a while so I am pretty excited. Although, I don’t want to celebrate too soon, since I need to consistently lose weight in order to truly break through this plateau.

I am going to the doctor tomorrow (Wednesday) for my follow up appointment. We will check out the progress of my right shoulder and he will take hisfirst lookat the left one. I’ll let you guys know the outcome (probably in another “brief” video).

My 37-week weight loss total is now at 41.0 lbs, and 46.0 lbs from my all-time high.

Congrats! Big weight loss weeks are always exciting! Keep up the great progress!

Thanks Lance! I really hope I have a repeat of this next week.

Keep it up! Exercise is a necessary part of staying fit. Diet alone will not keep you healthy and neither will exercise, but together it is a winner!

You’re absolutely right! That’s why I am pushing to run while my shoulders are injured, even though I don’t like it.

Hmm…you don’t like running and yet you are doing it…I suddenly feel challenged to stop being a couch potato =]

I went running, “kicking and screaming”, but I know how important it is, especially since I can’t do my normal workouts. I hope you are able to get out there and do something…no matter how small.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

whoa 3 pounds! great job staying consistent with eating right and running. I’m ready to get back in the swing of my workouts now that I’m back from Ireland

Thanks Jessica! I can’t wait to read about all of your adventures.

By the way, I am no longer getting emails from your site when you post new articles. 🙁
