That titles pretty omonious but it's all about the weekly weigh in. I really didn't weigh myself last week because I was out of it. It was around 205 then this weekend and the last of my no tracking days I saw 208 on the scale. But I'm back on track and have lost!
Weekly Loss: -1.5 (or -0.8lb from the last WWI)
Total Loss: -19lbs
Pounds to Nov Goal: 21lb
I've lost 19lbs since April and I am starting to tell, trying on old clothes that were too small, buying a large shirt instead of an XL, putting ill fitting jeans into the good will pile. All good and in the right direction.
I did give myself a goal of being 182lb by Nov 6th, which is the next time I'll go home and see a lot of college friends. That's 21lbs in like 42days. 1lb every 2 days! I think I'm going to amend the goal, I want to be in the 180s so that about 15lbs. I've been on track eating and working out so I think I'll be in good shape. There is my birthday and Halloween in October so I'll have to be careful around those days.
Now for a little soapbox time:
I also wanted to mention something that happened at work on Monday. I work at a 24hr gym. Since it isn't staffed all the time and some people aren't professionals (like myself) we don't allow children under 13 to join. A man came in and looked around the gym. He said he really needed a gym membership his daughter could use as well. She is 12 and apparently really needs to go to the gym. This hurt my heart. A child who NEEDED to go to the gym. I was probably that same kid but my mother put me on diets. Childhood obesity is bad, because it's not the child's fault.
Of course before I could post my experience Jack Sh*t has gone and out done me. His post today has some statistics on childhood obesity and he mentioned the COAK program.
