Today I tipped the scale at 251.4 pounds. That represents a 0.6 pound loss from last week. My total weight loss is now at 93.6 pounds or 27.1% of my original body weight.
This morning I did a 60 minute treadmill work out. Here is my chart to date for the challenge to exercise 1,500 minutes in October:
I did it! I exercised for 1,500 minutes in the month of October. If I end up taking an exercise walk today, it will go higher. So far I am at 1,525 for the month.
For the week ahead the plan is to continue to work out in the morning before work. I find that I am more energetic in the morning when I start the day this way.
It is definitely getting harder to lose weight. Over the last 8 weeks, I have averaged 1.9 pounds lost. I have had a few stellar weeks, and a few that were more flat. As I am shedding the easy pounds and working out more, I am also increasing in muscle mass. This is a great thing for my long term health, but it does tend to slow the weight loss.
How are you doing on your journey?
