Whew, what a month. We had visits from friends and family for two weekends in a row in the middle of the month. I wasn’t my best on those weekends, but I also wasn’t too out of line. Although, the crab stuffed lobster with some England Clam chowder and then the killer, a piece of chocolate pie. It was taunting me.
But I got back on track for the last week or so of the month and did really well. I also increased my workouts to 5 days a week and those consist of running 2.5 miles at a 9:00 mile pace and then 3 sets of 12 on several weight machines (all of which I have doubled the amount of weight I’m lifting on since March).
I’m hoping this month will go better, but I do have my dad coming in for a visit in a couple of weeks, I’m going to do my best to stay on the wagon. Although, losing 6 pounds this month even through some poor eating choices, is still nice. My goal for June is another 6-10 lbs.
Oh, and I’m also scheduled to run in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge which is a 3.5 mile run through Central Park on June 24th. That should be fun, I’m trying to work my workout run to at least 4 miles so it won’t be so bad running through the park.
Here are the numbers for May:
Start Weight: 276 lbs Current Weight: 234 lbs Goal Weight: 200 lbs Weight Lost This Month: 6 lbs Weight Lost Total: 42 lbs Remaining Weight: 34 lbs Percentage of Goal: 55.3%
Till next month.

Congratulations on your weight loss! As a person that lost 80#s, I know how difficult it can be to progress at a steady pace. It looks like your going about it the right way. I wish I could still run 3.5 miles. I hope that everything else is going well for you and your wife!
P.S. Cool web site.
Mark, thanks for the kind words. Things are still progressing well. I’ll be posting soon about my run in Central Park and also another update.
Thanks for visiting.
