Last week I weighed 338, today I weighed 331.4 for a loss of 6.6 pounds!
I'm obviously thrilled with the results. Take away that pound I gained last week and I still lost 5.6 pounds over the last 2 weeks. Those are pretty good numbers. In fact this marks the 6th week of focusing on losing weight. So far I've lost a total of 16.4 pounds or roughly 2.7 pounds per week.
I also have the opportunity to get out of the dungeon... I've always weighed in a Wii Fit scale, but it only goes to 330 so I had to go out and buy a scale that went to 400 pounds. There's no good place to put it as my bathroom is being remodeled, so I ended up putting it in the basement. Every Saturday morning I have to go down there to weigh in. Next week I will weigh in on the Wii Fit scale.
I can't tell you how many times I let a bad reading on the scale derail me the following week. These last two weeks have taught me that I just have to be patient; remain consistent and the weight will come off. My plan is working well and I don't feel like I'm suffering in the process. I haven't been perfect by any stretch but when I trip up, I get back up as quickly as I can.
Another day in the books, on to week #7 and more consistency.
