Stepping on the scale, sometimes its so rewarding.

After a week of walking and eating the correct foods my weight has come down again and I am feeling good again. I say feeling good "again" because no matter what I do when my body is not getting what it needs in the way of exercise and intake I never feel as good as when I am eating correctly and moving more. 

I'll keep this post simple and to the point as I want to get out for a walk before it rains, I am down to 397.0 pounds this morning, yesterday morning it was lower but I had a late dinner and barely any sleep last night and it shows on the scale this morning. 397.0 means that I am down 2.6 pounds from last Friday, I'll take it! If I can continue to drop an average of 2.5 pounds per week I will be 330 pounds by my goal date of April 1st and I hope I can get it off faster than that but I do think that 2.5 pounds per week is an achievable goal.

 Making my way back down to a healthier weight, Feeling good again and with some discipline and hard work I will get there again. 

That's all I got for today as my walk calls. 

As Ever


  1. YAY! achievable goals for sure are the way to go.Real life sustainable long term non fad life change.
    You are doing GREAT!
    2.6 POUNDS DOWN!!!!!
    Well done.
    Keep up the great work!

  2. yay! I am so glad for you! I wish I could say the same! I haven't lost anything lately. I'm stubborn and don't want to eat less than 1600 calories, so I guess my body will not let me lose weight if I don't. *sigh*

  3. Well Done your making great progress, keep up the good work

  4. Great job! You are an inspiration! And I think I am going to get my ass in gear and go for a walk too....

  5. Congratulations. Keep up the good work and you will be there in no time! Thanks for sharing the joy.

  6. Great job. I lost over 100lbs. But in the past year I stop exercising and eating right and gain most of it back. I started back on track about a 3-weeks ago and so far I've lost about 10lbs.

  7. Congratulations! Best of luck on your weight loss journey. My experience has been that it is long and difficult, but extremely rewarding!

  8. Great job. I agree about not rushing things. 2.6 pounds a week is, what I'm told, the way to go it make sure it stays off.

  9. Congratulations! I remember how glad I was when my scale indicated 95kg (209 lbs) a few months back. I started my journey one year and 60kg (132 lbs) ago! Good luck with everything!


  10. hi! i've struggled with obesity almost half of my life. didn't half self esteem and pretty much went through depression.
    but something inside me never gave up hope. my parents were very supportive. they helped me find the best solution to my weight problem.
    we tried lots of products. and eventually we found something that was made from natural ingredients and didn't give me any side effects.
    i was 252 lbs before. after 7 months i'm down to 154 lbs. i have before and after pics but i'm not comfortable posting them here for all the world to see.
    i was bullied a lot before and despite losing a lot of weight, i'm not ready to paste my picture in public.
    but if you do wish to see them, send me an email at will be glad to share the product as well.
    not here to earn anything. just want to share to people with the similar problem something that worked for me.

  11. Well done , keep up the hard work. I know the feeling of stepping on the scales and seeing your hard work and efforts show ion the scale. I personally think that goal setting is one of the most important aspects of weight-loss and far too many people over look this part. Its important to have realistic , manageable and measurable goals to set yourself for long term success. I would like to hear what your thoughts are on this.

    I also think that a open mind and a willingness to try new things is key as some things simply will not work for some people and work well for others.

    I think a person diet and nutrition is more important than exercise, but physical exercise is very important to burn of the excess calories and build lean muscle. I will checkout some of your other posts to see how you train and what your approach to that is , I am interested.
