Weight Loss Update

Posted on by Patrick

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!
