Last week was a great week, progress-wise. I kept working on my sodium to hold it in my target zone, my sugars continued to be great, and my weight went down. Sounds like a trifecta I can get behind.
Overall, I lost 2.5 pounds last week, to bring me to 216.9 pounds, and 117 pounds lost.
As mentioned, my sodium and fasting blood sugar figures are on track as well, although the sugars were creeping up there by the end of the week:
Back to the point, which is that this female associate had not seen me since she went off on mat leave last November, and she was a little shocked at my appearance. "Oh my god, look at you!" she exclaimed, and then asked how much weight I had lost. Guessing, I told her that I had lost 60 pounds (actually it was only 50 pounds, but I was close enough). She was suitably impressed.
I don't really see a huge sifference between now and last November (see below), but I sure as heck can tell a difference from before I started working out:
It's all headed in the right direction, anyways. Here's where I stand on the goals for the week:
This past weekend was more social than normal, and it definitely involved rather more margaritas, enchiladas, ice cream and carrot cake than the usual weekend, so this week may be a difficult one, weight loss-wise. In anticipation of a struggle, I have increased my free weights from 4 sets of 12 to 5 sets of 10. Hopefully that will help.
