Daddy needs a new stereo

Well, I’m feeling pretty durn good today. Got up early this morning and weighed and I’m now at 295.2 pounds. Yeah! I think the plateau I’ve been on for the last two months might be breaking.
At work someone started a “Biggest Loser” competition. It was $25 to get in on it and the winner gets the money pot. C’mon baby! Daddy needs a new stereo! On my first weigh in since the initial one two weeks ago, I’ve lost 6 pounds according to the company scale (which weighs heavy by the way…see my earlier blogs about that).
I’ve been consistently exercising now for over 3 weeks. I can’t tell you how much better I feel – and how much stronger. I’m weight lifting 3 times a week and using the elliptical 2 times a week for 20 minutes. I hope to build up to 30 minutes and beyond soon.
I’ve also been trying to cut calories a little more. I was staying at 2,500 calories a day, but over the last couple of days, I’ve cut down to 2,000 and under a little.
This lifestyle is getting easier and easier to live with.

Slow as molasses

I’ve got to get back into the habit of blogging again.

I’m a little frustrated right now. My weight has stayed the same for almost two months now. I fluctuate between 296 and 300lbs. I don’t know what’s up.

I am exercising daily (well, consistently for the last 2 weeks anyway). Three mornings a week I lift weights and 2 mornings a week I work out on the elliptical machine. I am still keeping my calories at around 2,500 a day which should be enough to lose at least a pound a week. I’ve got to be slipping up somewhere. Maybe I need to lower calories even more? Egads!

I did find this website which is pretty encouraging. It’s a Weight Watcher’s site.

I do feel stronger than I have in a while though. There is just no way though that I will reach my 100 pound goal this summer. That is disappointing but at least I’m trying.

So, I am super frustrated right now, but hoping I'll be able to break the pound barrier again soon. Here's to trying.
