Weekly Progress Update {Written}

Back in the day @ 225lbs

On a positive note, as of waking this morning, the teller of truth, my sometimes adored (recently very much adored) and often times demonic, scale reports a current loss of 145.3 pounds.

With that “official” weigh in, my current weight now stands at 229.7lbs. February’s starting weight was 375. I am close to my original goal of 225lbs. That is the weight I am usually most comfortable, but I am not in the gym because of COVID, so the associated muscle that I would normally carry is not present. Additionally, I am planning to “compete” in an Ironman distance {2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bicycle ride, 26.2 mile jog [I know WTF is wrong with me😉😎?]} Triathlon in September, so I am going to bring my weight down to 185lbs. I have cleared space in my home to do some basic weight training, thankfully my years of experience, combined with my education and decades of training others, I will come up with an effective regime despite limited equipment. 

 

Last week I mentioned how fickle weight loss can be and the decreases from week to week may not be consistent, well these last 3 weeks were.  A little over 5lbs for the last 2 weeks, and again a little over 5 this week. This is an objective, measurable reminder of how important it is  to maintain consistency. That consistency, combined with desire, determination and discipline, plus the incredible support I receive here, over the long run, is what yields results.

 

To everyone on social media, my blog, Racquel and Annie at work, my colleague Doc Malcolm Conway, and my accountability buddy on Facebook, thank you all for your words of support and encouragement. I know for a fact, that during these most difficult times, which have been greatly compounded by other forces, without your positive comments pushing me forward, the results would not be what they are.
