November 2016

Hello and welcome to my weigh in post for December 1st. The month of November 2016 has come and gone. I have experienced some decent weight loss but also some challenges and things that I need to work on. I finally decided to apply myself to this monumental task of dropping well over a hundred pounds around the 15th of November. Let's take a look at the numbers for the month past but first, here are the current weigh in stats.

Since my last weigh in (November 25th) I have gained nearly a full pound (0.8). My current weight is 352 pounds even. My total weight loss is now nearly six (5.8) pounds.

This is disappointing. I keep shooting myself in the foot. Yesterday we celebrated my oldest daughter's birthday and I did not moderate myself as much as I should have. This left me no time whatsoever to work off those calories. On the other hand, there was one other day that I did not manage my calories well either so perhaps I should be happy with these numbers.

A couple of positives is that I have been getting some good steps while at work. In addition, I have also been going on walks at night and on the weekends. It could be possible that some of this weight gain may be due to increasing activity levels. I am not sure if muscle builds that quickly or not but it sounds like a good excuse for gaining weight.

November 2016 Summary:
  • Total weight loss to date: 5.8 pounds
  • Total weight loss this year: 5.8 pounds
  • Total weight loss November 2016: 5.8 pounds
  • Total weight still to lose: 177 pounds
The total weight still to lose would put me at 175 pounds. I have not weighed 175 pounds since my senior year of high school. I would be very happy to weigh in under 200 pounds. I am not sure how realistic it will be for me to ever weigh 175 pounds again but that is where I wanted to set the target.

I have a lot of work to do and the mistake that is very easy to make is to be intimidated by the magnitude of the journey ahead. Instead, I will choose to focus on smaller "bite size" goals. That was a pun by the way since I am blogging about weight loss. My next goal that I am going to focus on is weighing in below 350 pounds. I am only two pounds away. The next weigh in is November 5th. I need to get busy. With that, goodbye for now!
