Weekly Update #24

Current Weight is 231.4 lbs
Previous Weight was 232.4 lbs

I lost 1 lb this week I was aiming for 1.42 lbs. I worked out 6 days last week and burned an average of 2787 (In the interest of clarity 1978/day as estimated by workout equipment. The other 809/day are from FitBit which causes the number to be skewed on account that some of these calories have been accounted for by the workout equipment) calories per day in exercise. Consumed an average of 1700 – 2000 calories per day.

206.6 lbs lost

As of today I am 26 lbs away from my goal weight and I’ve decided that starting next week I will no longer be posting my weight though if you are interested you will be able to see it on my LoseIt profile. This is a change that I am putting in place because I want to take the focus off of scale and more towards just my general happiness and health. The focus of these weekly updates is going to shift to talking more about my accomplishments during the week. This change will help me in my transition into my maintenance phase and help me keep a positive attitude and hopefully serve as encouragement for all of you. That being said I want to start by sharing a look back at my journey into physical fitness.

When I started tracking my activity back on December of 2013 I barely moved more than 3.23 miles in an entire week. It wasn’t until February of 2014 that I chose to introduce the gym to my weight loss process mostly due to the fact that I was to heavy for most of the equipment.

3.23 Miles

But now after a little over a year I’m able to knock out almost 50 miles worth of movement in a week. I remember that prior to losing any weight I would always have to park close to the entrance of whatever place I was going to because I couldn’t walk very far without losing my breath. Standing for any length of time was a struggle because my knees would start to hurt which meant that I was constantly sitting. I’m incredibly proud of how I’ve turned my life around.

49.29 miles

Goal for this week is to consume no more than 1650 calories per day. Burn an average of 1772 calories per day in exercise over 6 day period. Weight loss goal is to lose 1.41 lbs.

    Another fabulous week, David. Really looking forward to hearing about all of your non-scale accomplishments. What a great idea to switch strategies in anticipation of maintenance. If you’re willing to share, would love to read a non-scale happiness goal each week too. Nothing high pressure, just some random thing you want to do that week, like wear purple suspenders or whatever! 🙂

    Anyway, this post just shows again how much you’ve grown in confidence and continue to develop strategies for and live a fulfilled life.

    Rah rah shish boom bah! David! David! You’re a rock stah!
