WEEK 10 - Progress and Friends

Week 10 | March 20, 2012 | Weight: 272.6 | Loss of 5.2 lbs | Total Loss: 38.0 lbs

This was a surprising loss for me this week.  I ate over my calories twice but I am working out regularly.  My current regimen is still Rowing for 20 minutes in the morning, then Elliptical for 6 minutes (I went up a minute LOL), a 3-4 km walk during work when it's not busy and a 2-3 km walk around the neighborhood before dinner in the evenings if it's not too crappy outside.  I'm slowly starting to pay attention to the labels on food now and having a look at my macros and sodium intake as well as cholesterol.  I know a bit later, I'm going to have to start paying closer attention to my sodium which is a bit high for my liking each week and start getting my protein up and fat down a bit.  But all that in good time.  I'm still losing, I have a long way to go and those things will become more important as I go.

I'm also a little surprised that people are starting to notice already.  I've had a couple comments from co-workers and the typical, "How are you doing it?" questions.  I didn't expect to start hearing anything from anyone till I lost 50 pounds at least.  That of course, as I've read, is common - others, especially ones that don't see you everyday, will notice your changes early even if you don't notice them yourself.

These comments from friends, co-workers and even strangers certainly help and I'm very happy to see a few friends now using the loseit.com web site as well.

It's great to have that kind of support system around and I can only imagine the extra challenge if I were doing this alone.  I'm hoping we'll all succeed together, so, here's to a healthy, and new US!
