My official weight this morning was 150.5 pounds, which is six and a half pounds lower than my starting weight of 157. Losing slightly less than a pound a week may not seem very fast, but I am confident that slow, steady weight loss is the healthiest kind and also the easiest kind to maintain and not gain back like a boomerang. By using the guidance in the Become Your Own Personal Weight Loss Coach program, I think almost anyone can achieve similar results.


Week 4 Weigh-In

July 27, 2009

My official Week 4 weigh-in shows that I gained a half pound in the past seven days, BUT I lost a total of three pounds for the first month I have been acting as my own weight loss coach. That may not seem like very rapid weight loss, but consider the fact that my maximum loss goal is 22 pounds, which means at my first month rate of weight loss, I will reach my goal in less than 8 months.

This morning I went out for a walk before sunup again. This time I added “running” into my exercise routine. At this point, for me, “running” means jogging slowly a very short distance. Part of my overall weight and fitness goal is to be able to run a mile in less than eight minutes, so I have started inching my way towards that objective. Adding running to my walking will increase how many calories I burn in my workouts, so my weight loss should get a little faster over the next few weeks.

I had my one week official weigh-in this morning: 155 pounds, which is two pounds down from my starting weight of 157 pounds.
