Week 32 - RESULTS

I feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things with my weight loss now - let's see if the numbers are still dropping!

STARTING WEIGHT:   227.1 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT:  226.0 lbs

WEIGHT LOSS:   1.1 lbs

Very pleased to see another loss this week. I'm a little surprised that its not a higher loss actually. I don't want anyone to read that as a negative - its just that I'm far more active than I have been over the last few months, now that term has started again, but in the past I was scoring higher weekly losses than this. I guess that's all down to the fact that there's far LESS of me these days, so I'm almost HAPPY to see the losses shrinking!

Also, I probably should mention - I didn't weigh in this morning, so the above is the weight I had hit by Sunday morning. Sunday night I was on-call at the hospital, and had to stay overnight in their on-call rooms. As such, this morning I didn't have my scales handy to weigh in, nor did I have my webcam to take photos for this week! I will tag the photos onto this post tomorrow morning, so it's up to date.

I want to re-design the spreadsheet I use to record my weigh-ins this week, as I'm still using the old system, which has a target weekly loss which is well beyond me these days. I was going to aim for a 2.3 lb weekly target, but I haven't really been anywhere near that over the last three weeks, so might have to rethink it again. That said, I haven't been for a run in, like, forever, and although its the LAST thing I want to do when I've been on my feet for 12 hours a day, I don't want to be relying just on a calorie deficit and a more active daily lifestyle. I need some specific, focussed exercise in my day too, so I might take some time to go over my timetable, check for days where I have an earlier finish or a later start, and see if I can squeeze some runs in there...the pain will be temporary, but the smaller belt will be...well not forever, but certainly longer!

71.1 lbs


  1. Well, think of it this way... You were a runner... and you were dropping weight fast... then it got harder... then you took some time off from running.... Now you started running again, but your body has to get back into the groove. So usually you start off with maybe a block or two, then move up to miles... after some small gains, you have skipped the blocks and are tackling miles!! Awesome loss!! :)

    Not sure if I made any sense... but in my head, it makes perfect sense ;)

    BTW.. have you tried to carry 70lbs around with you?!?!?! HOLY WOW!! You are doing amazing!!

  2. Gonna be over that wedding gain...I see. I had a scooter fall pity party month that I have two more pounds to get where I left off. It seems harder the second time around for me. How about you?

  3. Congrats on the loss! Take any and all losses with a smile! I do agree tho that if you ahve changed your time for weighing then that could be the reasoning for the lower than thot numbers! but YAY!!!! So excited for you!! Keep it up!
