Day 38 , Weigh in day

Just another day in the life of a fella doing something for himself, the day went fine as far as intake and exercise goes. I feel like I did not get enough water but otherwise good. I had coffee for the first time in about a month and man do I miss it lol. its all good though my results are satisfying and I contribute everything that I do to the numbers I put up, or should I say down.

I weighed in at 495.6 so I will count it at 496. when I weigh in I weigh myself 5 times to see where it goes in case of a variation. it ranged from 495.6 to 496 even I usually take the highest weight and use that, so 496 it shall be. thats more than 3 lbs since Tuesday. I am happy with the loss. I am going to try and stay off of the scale all this week. its hard for me because I like to see that I am making progress. it seems like smaller amounts because I weigh in biweekly. if I were to take a weeks loss I was 503lbs last Friday, so its a 7lb loss this week total. I am rambling on now lol. onto the menu.

  1. Excellent Job this week. You may be on to something about exercising on and off, or maybe it's the lechecin. whatever it is, it is working just fine. I cant wait to try the chicken salad sandwich. I dont eat much bread, so I'm looking forward to the pumpernickel. Mmmmm...
    I will be posting soon. I get on the computer first thing, and I slept in a little today. Long story, check out my blog later- Your support in my goals has been amazing. I hoe you know how proud I am of you!

  2. Yay! 7 pounds in a week! That's one pound per day! That's crazy, but it's awesome! You should be so proud of yourself, since you've been the one controlling your portions, and counting your calories, and exercising your body! It's all because of you! YOU are doing great, and are going to succeed, no doubt.
    I'm very happy for you!
    Keep up the great work!

  3. Hey there!! I've been following your journey for a few weeks now. I am amazed at your motivation and how well you've done. I read one of your posts on Sparkpeople and have been hooked ever since. I just started a blog today, but I'm still kinda getting used to the whole thing.

    Anyhow congrats on your success and glad to find someone on here (and close to the same weight) that is going through the same struggles as I am. Look forward to following your journey!!

  4. Sandy,
    I honestly think that the lecithin is helping with the job, my father swears by the stuff,He is not over weight, he is 6'1'' 265 and large build.when he was younger he used it to help him drop some weight, so thats good enough for me to try it out.

    yeah 7lbs! I am very excited about that. I am doing about 1lb per day says the scale! wify didn't do so well this week I am afraid :( she lost 1lb this week. which is still great! she just sounded disappointed this morning when I talked to her.

    Thanks a lot for reading the blog, its cool to know that people are actually following it. keep up the good work and we can do it together. if ever you need any advice, just ask! (not like I am an expert lol) but you know what I mean.

    Thanks for the comments ladies

    As Ever
