Week 8 | March 6, 2012 | Weight: 280.1 | Loss of 5.1 lbs | Total Loss: 30.5 lbs
In about 4 pounds, I will be the lightest I have been in a long, long time. Over the past two years, I've been fluctuating between this weight and being over 300 pounds during fad diets and various workouts so I can see my journey from this point forward to be the real test. Once I lose another 15, I'll be the lightest I've been in 8 years and I'm looking forward to seeing that.
As it stands, my routine has been simple, keep counting every calorie I put in my mouth - even the cooking spray that goes into the fry pan for my egg whites or the extra two ounces of meat loaf I stole from my son's plate when cleaning up gets counted. Keeping those numbers under budget and working out 30 minutes each morning is my recipe for success so far.
