Weighing In Week 1
Today is Saturday (13 Jun) and it is weigh-in day. I just got back from my walk and I’m cooling off before taking my shower. I’m hoping I lost at least 1k (2.2 lbs) since last week. Remember I weighed 139.3 kilos (307.15 lbs) so I’d like for it to be 138.3 kilos (304.95 lbs) today, or less. If not, it’s okay but I’d like for it to at least be close and I know I can do a better job during this next week of eating less. I know I can cut down on my stew a little bit. Maybe instead of drinking 3 liters of water per day, I can cut it down to 2 or even 1.5 liters. Whatever it takes, I’m going to lose the weight this time. I know I’ve said that many, many times before, but this time I’m going to do it. Some way, some how it will be done.
I’m back from my morning walk and my shower is complete. The moment has arrived for me to step on that scale.
Okay, the official new weight is in. My new weight is now: 138.15k (304.62 lbs). Hurrah for me! I was able to lose 1.15 kilos (2.53 lbs) so I met goal for the week. Now if I can just keep it up. Maybe the adjustments I will make this week will be enough to get me under 300 lbs. I haven’t been under 300 lbs for quite a long time. If not this next week, then the week after for sure. I didn’t gain all this weight overnight so I can’t expect to lose it overnight. It will take time and patience. I really think I will do it this time. I hope that y’all reading will help by commenting and showing your support.
I have already deleted a lot of pictures that I looked super fat in so the feature picture for this post is the one that I have left that I think I look the fattest. At one time I “officially” weighed 333 lbs (151.02 kilos) but I think I was actually unofficially closer to 350 lbs (158.73 kilos) for a short time. I just refused to get on a scale during that time. Regardless of the past, the future for me weight-wise is looking good. I’ve decided that 210 lbs (95 kilos) is the weight I will be trying to achieve. After that I will see how I feel and go lower if I think I will be good with it.
I’m thinking to at least once again, just once, see that “1” at the beginning of my weight again. Maybe if I do feel I can be good going lower, I will try for 190 lbs (86 kilos). I can’t see it right now, but it’s been so long since I weighed that little I don’t even really remember what it felt like.
I do remember that even back then the Air Force was telling me that I was overweight. I don’t have to worry about that anymore, so we’ll see how things go.
I’m pumped up and ready to get this weight problem put in the past. I believe that will take care of my blood pressure and gout problems also. I will no longer be on any type of medication if I can stick with it and lose this weight.
Remember, if you support me losing weight, give me a little shout out that you are rooting for me. I need all the encouragement I can get.
