Weigh in week one for the 25 by 11/11 challenge

This morning was the day that I am to weigh in so here it is, I woke up and relieved myself of the evenings reservoir and straight to the scale to see a one pound loss, I came in at 339 on the nose and honestly its less than I expected but it is what it is. Even though I was expecting more of a loss this week in retrospect I guess its about what it should be because the lack of exercise and the last two days I have not been so straight and narrow because of running around the world getting some stuff finished up that I needed to which also explains the lack of posts for the same couple days.

Yesterday I drank less than a gallon of fluid in total all day where as usually its creeping up on 2 gallons and because of a late trip to the DMV which lasted about 2.5 hours we ended up eating dinner at 8:00 pm and it was at a Friendly's restaurant so that may have effected this mornings weigh in. Even with that what would the difference had been? 1/2 pound maybe? either way this week will be a bigger loss and I am guaranteeing that.

I have already this morning drank 3/4 of a gallon of green tea and its only just after 10:30 am, I guess I needed it after yesterday because its going down fast. I have also been running around like a mad man this morning doing house work and am planning on a ride on my bike this afternoon after I drop my daughter off at school which hopefully happens because it is beautiful outside this time of year and today seems especially nice out, and with that last statement I am heading out the door to wash and wax my car so until next time, keep on keepin on and all that.

As Ever


  1. A pound is a pound is a pound Tony. Don't forget that!

  2. A Pound is indeed a pound, and this next week can be better.

    You can make your goal man. I'm rooting for you.

  3. Hey I think you are doing AMAZING regardless- you have lost 200 lbs! Sometimes the body needs a break from all the loss IMO.

    I have finally broke through my plateau and am doing well again after months of stalling- I know you'll get to your goal!

  4. Friend,

    Big picture comment - what you have accomplished is simply amazing.

    The day to day, week to week grind. I salute your tenacity.

  5. Congrats on the pounds lost. I know how frustrating it can be to step on the scale and think your weigh in is going to be one thing and it's another. If you thought it was more, then it is hard to get excited about the 1 pound. Keep up the good work. I am on my way to losing 145 pounds and just hit 56.4 pounds lost this past Saturday. I weigh in every week at Weight Watchers on Saturdays. I look forward to following your journey.
