For the past three days, I was preparing myself to get serious about losing eighteen pounds in twenty-six days left in my HealthyWage challenge. My starting weight was 289lbs. In my first week of the challenge, I lost about four to six pounds and was thrilled. Then suddenly, I gained weight and went up to 292lbs. I wasn’t discouraged by this but disappointed.
I must work to achieve this and maintain weight loss. It is strange to me that I feel as though I am in my 280’s. When in fact, I weighed in today at 263lbs. My stamina is low, even though I can walk and sprint some. My energy level is also low. For the past several days, I have left the sweets alone and ate salad with chicken. I have to work on this. I only have 24 days to get this right and to win.
This morning I had two cups of coffee and went to the gym for one hour and thirty minutes. When I arrived home, I ate a salad with some chicken. I am feeling drained and soar. I know this is normal when you first leave the gym. However, I realize toning the muscle groups up is more challenging than I originally thought.
