Day 118 - Week 17
Its been 16 complete weeks now and here are my latest numbers:
Weight: 201.6 down from: 203.6 started at: 261
BP: 106/63 down from: 109/71 started at: 153/92
Pulse: 50 down from: 52 started at: 88
BMI: 27.3 started at: 35.4
Well another 2 pounds down this week and 59.4 lbs overall. A little less than expected but probably retaining a bit of water (been eating a lot of watermelon recently). Everything continues to move in the right direction and I'm less than 2 pounds away from the next goal of under 200. I should make this by next week.My BP and pulse continue to stay nice and low. I now have my wife help me every week with my BP cuff as it really needs a second set of hands to be put on properly for measurements, so that issue is resolved for now and my readings are quite stable.
B: oatmeal with flax and cinnamon
2 cups of herbal tea
S: herbal tea
L: mixed veggies with salsa
D: baked potato and sweet potato
a little watermelon and a cutie
E: 44 mins walking - 5192 steps. Walked down/up/down 17 floors. Total steps for day - 9557 steps.
M: 10 mins
Felt really good today. Hated to go into work today but what can you do
... walked down and back up 17 floors in the morning and walked back down in the afternoon. The days are getting so busy that its hard to find time to do any exercise at work. I did my walking after work and that felt good and strong though with a bit of high inner thigh soreness from the stair walking today. My boss is off this week which means I'm now covering for him as well. Sigh, nothing like more work at work...
Looking forward to hitting my next goal this time next week. Its been a long time coming and I'm really happy about it. Everyday now someone is telling me I'm looking good with all the weight loss. But no one seems to really care about the how or why, not that its really important, just an observation. I haven't really noticed anyone else in the office following my lead but maybe that will change
