From losing to living

Today was a disappointing weigh-in day. I knew I would hit a plateau at some point or points during this but I guess I was hoping that I wouldn’t see it. I have been trying really hard to behave and eat right and exercise daily. I can do better in the eating right department. I have been snacking on jelly beans not a lot but I guess it doesn’t take much. I also have been hitting the jar of nuts a little too much. Nuts do have their benefits and are a healthy snack but, eating too much of anything can be bad. I can get better at that. I also read an article about fasting one day a week (they actually said Thursday). Supposedly, this helps retrain the body to burn stored energy. I was actually impressed I managed to not consume anything on Wednesday. So, I thought I was heading for a decent week for my weight. By the way I still think I had a bad scale reading. My official weight was 157.2 pounds. Down 0.4 pounds but, when I weighed myself at home naked, after the shower, I was 1.5 pounds lighter than my previous post shower weight.
Home – 153.5 lbs
Official – 157.2 lbs
Lunch – 155.5 lbs
Up until this point I have been running every day. The past two weeks 4 miles per day. I figured as soon as I hit a plateau, I would change my exercise. I am going to add 3 days of high intensity total body weight lifting along with 4 days of running. My plan is to try this for one or two weeks and adjust accordingly. I am really bummed for only registering the 0.4 pound loss. Man I wish I could eat a pizza. Until Next week…shooting for 2 pounds!

Well two weeks into it and the eating temptation is getting a little easier. I am running 4 miles a day now but, I have neglected any type of weight training. One of these days maybe I will get to that. I am going to have to once I hit my plateau. I am down another 3.2 pounds bringing my total to 9.8 pounds. Monday, I broke down and ate some pizza. I didn’t go crazy with it but still made me feel guilty.
Home – 157 lbs
Official – 159.8 lbs
Lunch – 159 lbs

Well we had our first weigh-in. I am happy with what I lost. I dropped 6.6 pounds. I know this won’t and shouldn’t be the norm. I am shooting for around 2 pounds a week. I have a feeling this week will be hard. My first weight was a bit inflated. I ate and drank a lot before weighing in. Here are my numbers for this week. I am adding a number for my scales I use at home.
Home – 159.5 lbs
Official – 163 lbs
Lunch – 160.5 lbs.
I was able to run 6 out of 7 nights about 3 miles per night but, I only body weight exercised 2 times.
I was a little slow to get this post up. I weighed myself at lunch today, Wednesday 2/29/2012 and it was 159.5
