Wednesday Weigh In, March 4, 2009


Started November 1, 2008 at 285.6 lbs
Last week = 274.5 lbs.
This week = 272.5 lbs.
Difference = -2 lbs.; -13 lbs since starting

Made it to the gym 6 days out of 7.

I’m actually feeling a lot better on the days that I make it to the gym than the days that I don’t.

My heart monitor calculates calories based on heart-rate and time.  If I do an hour, it generally records about 800 to 850 calories.  This week, it recorded over 1400 calories on two consecutive days.

I forgot to mention that I turned 57 earlier this month.

    Wow. You really are doing well with the weight loss – that is great that you have gone to the gym 6 out of 7 days! I'm going to try to go tomorrow mainly to use the bikes so I can get in shape to do some bike riding this summer! Oh and happy late birthday! 57 is still so young! I'm glad you are taking care of your weight and health. 🙂

    Rose – Thanks! (and flowers and fruit trees are already in bloom here.)

    teeni – Thanks! It's a lot easier for me to maintain motivation when I make it a routine, a habit. If I stop going, then not going becomes the habit.

    DeBo Hobo – Thanks! now all I have to do is keep at it.
