Well this last week went really really well and I can’t wait to share this number with you all. I have noticed that my weight loss goes in spurts and this week I finally broke through my plateau, the one I’ve been hovering around since mid-February. I was having the hardest time breaking through the 260 weight point and this last week I finally did it, and then some.  So here is this week’s data:

Weight Chart

Today’s Weight: 253.6 lbs
Weekly Change: – 7.3 lbs
Total Change: – 9.2 lbs

Total Distance Traveled (biking and walking): 73.35 miles
Total Cardio Time: 260.23 minutes

This is certainly a big loss and lot higher than the recommended 1-2 lbs a week so I have to watch myself. I’m going with this week being an adjustment week to compensate for the gains from earlier. I feel like my loss is back on track to where it was when I started over a year ago.

Things I did differently this week:

  • Started doing some workouts in the morning before work
  • Added protein smoothies to my breakfast and upped my overall protein levels
  • Greatly reduced the amount of bread in my meals
  • Set 9:00 PM as a cut off point for eating

Also, for the fun of it, I pulled out my original scale and weighed in just to see how it compared. I used this scale for all of last year and part of this year before switching over to a Withings scale that I won from a contest on Daily Burn. According to the original scale:

Starting Weight: 381.3
Current Weight: 252
Total Loss: 129.3 lbs
