Week 8 has come to a close. Nothing lost and nothing gained. With the thorn in my foot and getting it out, it was Thursday before I could walk and I knew it was going to start raining Friday and rain most of the weekend so I figured I’d just wait til Monday to start walking again. We ate lunch out once and dinner out once and while we didn’t pig out, we ate things we shouldn’t have – a roll and a Dr. Pepper at both meals.
Week 1: Lost 9.2 pounds
Week 2: Lost 4.6 pounds (13.8 total to date)
Week 3: Lost 1.8 pounds (15.6 pounds to date)
Week 4: Lost 1.6 pounds (17.2 pounds to date)
Week 5: Gained 1.2 pounds (16 pound lost to date)
Week 6: Lost 3 pounds (19 pounds lost to date)
Week 7: Lost .4 pounds (19.4 pounds lost to date)
Week 8: Lost nothing/gained nothing (19.4 pounds to date)
I had my annual blood work done this week and was so sure my cholesterol was going to be way down but I was wrong. It was 205 last year and this week . . it was 245. Makes no sense to me but I’ll keep exercising and losing weight and see what next year brings. I’m not going to take statins.
The good news is the glucose/blood sugar levels. In 2014, my level was 106 and that was flagged as high. They want mine to be under 105. In 2015, it was 91 and this year, it was 77 so I’m really happy about that.
We’re halfway through our 16 week program now. I’m hoping to work harder this week and have at least some amount of weight loss.
