Week 47 Weigh In – Trying To Pick Up Momentum

Weigh In

It’s time for another weekly weigh in. As far as eating goes, I had an excellent week once again! I didn’t eat any fast food and, since we don’t buy any unhealthy groceries, I ate nothing but healthy meals and snacks all week. Since I was sick, my wife made two large pots of chicken soup, which lasted for several days. A few days earlier, she made a large amount of black bean soup; so most of my full meals last week consisted of soup.

I did better with sticking with my intermittent fasting 8-hour eating window, and I think I only ate something after 8pm once (which was actually my first meal of the day).

That nasty cold that I caught last week lingered into this week, and it took a little bit out of my workouts, but I still got them in. I did a few more Tae Bo workouts, and I really enjoy them (although, it’s hard to be as intense as I need to since we are on the 2nd floor) In fact, here is a video that I did one day last week after a sick workout:

I was able to get up early on most days, and it seems like my body is returning to my normal sleep pattern (waking up at 4:30am). Ok, I need you guys to weigh in on something: Is there such a thing as a “Jersey Accent“? Someone mentioned that, and so I had to make a video dispelling the myth:

As you can see, I have been consistently making videos of my meals, workouts, weigh ins, and other things that come up regarding health and nutrition (or New Jersey) – so make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel. ;-)

There was another weigh in due for the couple challenge that we are a part of, so instead of my normal boring video, you get to see my wife alongside me!

Here is the video from my weigh in, and then to the historic numbers…

And here is a direct link to the video on YouTube, in case you are reading this via email.

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! ;-)

Just to recap, last week I was 240.4. I have to admit that if I still see the 240s after this great week, I will be a little disappointed. 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 37 – 246.0

Week 41 – 234.0

Week 44 (unofficial) – 247.8

Week 46 – 240.4

Week 47 – 237.4

I am pleased to see a 3 lb loss in one week; especially, since my workouts were not as intense as usual. I am hoping that I can dial up the intensity of my workouts, and also continue to eat well, so I can continue to see good results.

As I said last week, “this is all about getting healthy and fit, and not just a number on the scale. As long as I know that I’m being disciplined and giving 100%, I’ll be happy no matter how slowly the scale moves down”!

My 47-week weight loss total is now at 49.6 lbs, and 54.6 lbs from my all-time high.

Glad you’re better from being sick — tell that wife of yours that I dig the Notre Dame sweatshirt! :-)

Thanks :D I am so proud of them this season, I had to represent!

Khaleef "Fat Guy" Crumbley October 18, 2012 at 10:03 am

Thanks TB! Actually, that was my sweatshirt, but I got too big for it. I need to see if I can fit it now.

Congrats! What is your goal weight? I found that I moved my goal weight as I was successful losing the weight.

Khaleef "Fat Guy" Crumbley October 18, 2012 at 10:06 am

Thanks! I actually haven’t set a weight goal. I would love to lose 100 lbs, just to say I did it. That would put me at around 190; but I’m not sure if that would be comfortable for me. When I was an athlete in high school, I was 180. I am trying to build a lot muscle and I am naturally very stocky, so I may be around 200 or 210 by the time my body is where I want it.

Alright alright! You’re 5 weeks away from your one-year mark! How does it feel looking back on all you’ve accomplished?

Khaleef "Fat Guy" Crumbley October 18, 2012 at 11:48 am

You’re right. I haven’t even taken time to reflect on the last year. I have mixed feelings. I am disappointed that once I lost 30 lbs, I lost some of my focus. Then I got injured and I also hit a plateau for over 3 months.

However, I am pleased because I am 50 lbs lighter than I was when I started, and I have also learned so much from all of my research into fitness and health. Also, there are a few people who have told me that through my making my struggles public (here, the FGSW FB page, and on YouTube), they have received motivation to become healthy as well!

Jessica @ Budget for Health October 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

You can’t expect the whole journey to be perfect and you obviously learned a lot from the plateau. I have been so encouraged by your progress and pursuit through real nutrition and not relying on a lose-weight quick scheme too many fall for [insert clapping here].

Three pounds in one week seems great to me. Good to hear that you are eating well Khaleef and hopefully feeling a lot better. I had the problem a few years ago of eating healthy foods but eating too much of it. Remember you can still gain weight eating healthy foods. Too many calories per day is still too many calories. I learned the hard way.
