Week of January 1st.

Okay, so since the last post there have been a few interesting developments. The first is that I found a great website / app to track my weight, food intake, and exercise during the course of all this called My Fitness Pal. Say what you will about diet scheme sites, etc., but this seems to be working for me now, plus some of my friends are on it as well and help with encouragement! Nice!

Another thing, I bought a new scale for home; a low end digital from Target. That's fine.

Now the third, and weird. So when I was weighed in at my Doctor's office I had all of my clothes on and clocked in at 256 pounds. I just weighed today on my scale at home, nekkid, and came in at 244. That's 12 pounds lost. Now, the real question is, did I have on 12 pounds of clothing during the weigh in at the doctors? No. And they advised that I lose 45 pounds. Hmm...

So this is what I am going to do: I am going to split the difference and say I lost 6 pounds since December 15th, the day of the doctors appointment. I have been dieting and exercising a LOT since two weeks ago. So that also means that my goal does change a bit too. Now my blog statement is a pound a week, but we all know that my bigger goal is to just get back to a better weight. So, from 244, the weight goal that I am setting is 210, that's 34 pounds. If I go further, awesome!

Weight: 244 pounds.

  1. You're doing great, Phil! It's inspiring to go MFP for own check-in and then see that you've already done 40 minutes of walking! It helps remind me to move my own ass! We can do it!
