On Friday March 4th, I completed week 105 of my journey to better health. This morning I weighed in at 213.6 pounds, down 0.6 pounds from last week. That marks 3 consecutive weeks of weight loss. I am now down a total of 131.4 pounds or 38.1% of my start weight. I am only 1.4 pounds from my lowest.
The last time I had 3 consecutive weeks of weight loss was weeks 77 through 79, or August 21 to September 4. And, this is my lowest weight since December 4.
I had a good week. Last Friday my wife and I splurged on Thai food. I say splurged, but the truth is that I ate far less than I would have in the past. It was fun to be out. On Saturday we were to have dinner out with friends, and I had mapped out my plan. Then plans changed and we ended up just having dinner at their house. My wife made a low-cal, WW friendly, guacamole – salsa which we had with low sodium corn chips. Super yummy and very filling. Sometime I will get her to write out the recipe, because it is a winner. It is something she learned from her mom, and we just love it here.
The rest of the week was just a matter of good choices.
In the last 7 days I have logged over 25 miles toward my goal to walk 1,000 in 2016. Here is my data for the week, including my 4 miles this morning:
For the month of February, I walked 95.92 miles. The target pace was 79.23, so I got back some of the miles that I fell behind in January when I wasn’t feeling well.
This weekend my wife will be away. I have many fun little projects around the house, and I plan to stay on track with my eating. I may even get myself to the gym for a rare, weekend visit or two.
This morning I am feeling very good!
