Monthly weigh in-

I managed to get up to 3mph. Heck yeah! I still struggle with it, but I'm definitely getting stronger.

My workout consists of carrying 2lb weights in each hand for about 8-10 minutes, while jogging at 3mph. Then just jogging (with no weights), until I complete 2 miles. I usually walk to cool down for about 10-15 minutes. All in all, my workout has been taking me about 50-55 minutes. I used to only jog at 2.5mph, and do 30 minutes. So my workout has increased dramatically. Sometimes it just flies by, but other times (especially when I increase my speed) it's a real struggle.

My eating... I stay around 1,500-1800cal, more often towards the upper limit than I'd like, and I know I would do better if I kept myself at 1500cal. It's really hard, but I'm working on it.

My weight has been at a standstill for the past 2 weeks, I also recently increased my workout so maybe things are just regulating. It's a little disheartening, but I know that if I stick with it, and maybe tighten in my calories more, I can get back on track.

So, my weigh in... I started at 227lbs, and I'm at about 211lbs now. I believe I've lost 6lbs this month. I can definitely see the progress now too.

Since March 17, 2012:
Weight loss: 16lbs
Inches off hips: 4in
Inches off waist: 3.5in

Since New Years 2011 though? I'm down 39lbs from my original starting weight of 250lbs. I've lost 6.5in off my waist and 4.5in off my hips. My neck is also 2in smaller, I'm down 2 pants sizes, and my bra size has went down 3 band sizes.

Not bad!

You are doing great. How tall are you again? I forgot. I seem to be finding weight of late.

Awesome work! Using weights will build muscle (a good thing), so don't forget to allow for that. Good for you. :)

Hey, you've done AWESOME! You're a whole three inches taller than me, too. I have asthma, too. I don't jog, because of that reason. Your arm looks like you've dropped a few inches there, too!

I can tell a difference! Fantastic! I've lost 10 pounds since january. Part was from GI bugs/part going gluten free/ and part recording my intake on daily. I strive for 1200/day, as I don;t lose weight if I hit 1400 or more a day.
