Challenge Starting Weight 204
Current Weight 202.3
Weight lost to date 1.7
Percentage lost -1%
So this is my first weekly weigh in since the Healthy Wage challenge started on July 20th. And so far so good!
We had to have our starting weight verified by a gym, trainer or doctor. Luckily someone I work with is a trainer, and we have a scale at work for the Weight Watchers meetings. The only thing was that I weighed in 3 pounds heavier then I had been at home that morning! I went home and re-weighed myself and sure enough, I was up by 3 pounds. I'm attributing that to clothes and having eaten during the day, since I normally weigh in first thing in the morning and with very little clothing on.
This challenge is about 12 weeks long. I would love to be able to lose 2 pounds a week, but I don't think that is very realistic. That would put me at 25 pounds lost or 13% of my overall starting weight. Since it has taken me 7 months to lose 35 pounds so far this year, I don't see this happening. I would be pleased to keep going at a pound a week, getting me to 189 or 7%.
Either way I will be shrinking!!
