Week 26 Weigh-in

On Sunday it will be officially 6 months since I started this journey to better health. This morning for week 26, I weighed-in at 268.8 pounds. That represents a 1.6 pound loss from last week. My total weight loss since the start is now 76.2 pounds or 22.1% of my original weight. I have updated my Progress Chart with this week’s results

I have now lost more weight on this journey than from any previous attempt to lose weight in my life. In 2000 to 2001 I lost 72 pounds in 16 months. I think the difference this time that has made me lose weight faster is my dramatic increase in exercise. I am being very careful about the food side of the equation, and that gets the train running down the track. Walking every day, and mixing in the stationary bike has stoked the fire of my weight loss burn.

This past week I also went over 100 miles walked in August. On Monday I will give a more full report on how that went, with some interesting facts and numbers. On Monday I will also be starting the 30 day Affirmation Challenge.

One of my fellow bloggers, Quitting is Never and Option, pointed out that there are 18 weeks left until the New Year begins. She encouraged her readers to take time now to make the commitment to eating healthy so that when the inevitable Holiday snacking opportunities come along we will all have the self-discipline to say “no thank you”, and stay on track. It’s a good read, with great advice.

For those of you in the US, have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.
