Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 266 Today’s weight: 266 Week weight loss: 0 lb Total weight lost: 29 lbs It’s hard to know whether this is an official plateau or not.  I’ve lost all of one pound in the entire month of December (I guess I still have a couple of days before I [...]

Catching Up on Christmas

December 28, 2007

The week went by too fast - which always seems to happen when I am on vacation.  So time to get caught up on a few things around here.  First of all you may remember that I was worried about this week from a diet standpoint - we hosted a big feast on Sunday, and [...]


Tightening Up My Strength Training Routine

December 24, 2007

Adding a morning strength training routine to my daily schedule has been one of the best things I have done over the last five months of my journey from fat to fit.  It’s also been one of the most challenging.  Because of my travel and work schedule I was already getting up early in the [...]

December 21, 2007

In Tuesday’s Don’t Skip the Cardio! I conceded defeat to my treadmill, which totally and completely kicked my butt as I made a lame attempt at Week 4 of the Couch to 5k plan.  In fact it was so lame that in my recording of the times I recorded it as yet another Week 3.  [...]

4 Reasons You Should Be Writing a Weight Loss Blog

December 19, 2007

Whether you are looking to lose that “Freshman Fifteen” or are in the 100+ Pounds-to-Go Club you should be writing a weight loss blog as a critical component of your weight loss plan. A weight loss blog is not a food journal or a food diary. Keeping a food journal can also be important and [...]


Don’t Skip the Cardio

December 18, 2007

It’s been about 5 weeks since I have used the treadmill.  Since that time I did get three 3 miles run in, but other than that - no cardio.  As you may remember (or maybe not since it has been so long since I have done any!) I am basing my cardio workout on the [...]
