Weight Loss Update - Week 5

Another week down, and motivated and working hard to make this happen.

Goal Weight = 220 lbs
Starting Weight 5/23/2011 = 312 lbs
Week 1 Weight 5/27/2011 = 307 lbs
Week 2 Weight 6/3/2011=301 lbs
Week 3 Weight 6/10/2011 = 296 lbs
week 4 Weight 6/17/2011 = 292 lbs

This week, Week 5 Weight 6/24/2011 = 287 lbs

That's 5 pounds lost this week. 25 lbs total in five weeks.

It hasn't been hard. In fact, it has been rather easy. Still motivated to do it and the success is breeding more motivation. I tried to go on more evening walks with Tiffany, though we were really only able to do that once this week. However, I did take a hike with the 11 yr old scouts up Adams Canyon. It seemed much easier than when Tiffany and I went up last year, though I look forward to the day I can become one of those trail runners we met along the way up the trail. Maybe it's not that far away.

If anybody would like, there is a great IPhone app that has been helpful (though pretty sure it would be on the Android market as well). It's an app called Lose It. I enter everything I eat and every exercise I do and it helps you know where you need to be for the day. It also follows your nutrition, not just calories, so you can ensure you are getting the right nutrients in you. It is free for anybody out there that wants it. That alone has been a great help. Also note that it is a website (loseit.com). Tiffany has a web enabled phone but no app available with this app. She started using her phone by going to the website this week to enter data in and she says it has been a help for her.

There are 1001 ways to lose weight. This is just one way or method that can be done. If you are trying, do what works for you. But if you are looking or searching for something, this will help track your progress.

Cheers,

Nathan
