Day 63 – 217.2 pounds

D.63-217.2 – I ate relatively lightly and worked out my upper body today, so I am quite proud. ¬†The soreness in my upper body started to subside just in time for another round of upper body reps to renew the soreness. I am actually getting quite excited about all of this renewed focus on my health. I’m hoping this is the start of a self-reinforcing ecosystem of positive feedback and I have so many of you to be thankful for it! ūüôā¬†(Down 14.5¬†pounds)

Day 61 – 217.7 pounds

D.61-217.7 – I am proudly typing this with sore arms, but also a little dejected by the weight gain. ¬†I knew this would be a tough weekend on me, but as with everything, mistakes and set-backs are there to provide you with a learning experience. ¬†There were some good things and I’ll focus on those to carry me through the day. Yesterday I had my first 1-hour session with my personal trainer and I am definitely feeling it today. I am excited to see what kind of results I’ll be seeing! (Down 14.0 pounds)

Day 58 – 216.9 pounds

D.58-216.9 – It was a leisure day of bad food choices, but I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with family and spending time with my good friend from Portland. ¬†I wasn’t happy with the jump in weight this morning, but it was not unexpected considering my 2am meal. ¬†The worst part is that I didn’t go running this morning, but I have all weekend to make it up. ¬†Speaking of the weekend, this will be a tough one because of some delicious dinners on the calendar, but I will survive! ¬†(Down 14.8¬†pounds)

Day 55 – 217.1

D.55-217.1 – I’ve now broken through my lower weigh-in of the last couple of months. 217.5 was the lowest I had gone down to before I went on my little rollercoaster the firstseveral weeks of this month. ¬†216 is the lowest I’ve weighed since late middle school, I’m tempted to say. ¬†212 is the lowest I’ve seen on a scale but that was within an hour of running a full marathon where I was famished and parched¬†¬†so I’ve considered that an outlier. Beyond 216 will be unchartered waters for me on this journey!¬†(Down 14.6 pounds)
