Saturday Weigh-In ~ Week 34

ImageChef Custom Images
Starting Weight: 258 lbs (Dec 10/08)
Last Weigh In: 198 lbs (Aug 1/09)
Current Weight: 197 lbs
This Week's Loss: 1 POUND

Total pounds lossed to date: 61!!!

I actually weighed myself on Friday morning...don't think the results would change in one day (at least, I hope not) LOL!

Another loss...a pound is a pound!!! I'm happy with it!! This was a good week. Ate well and exercised well!

I made a few adjustments to my training after speaking with my trainer Rob, regarding the pull-ups! I HATE PULL-UPS!!! I can do 2-3, then it's a shaky struggle to get through the rest of the reps. I'm not giving up..I'm going to do as many as I can. In my case, my plan calls for 3 sets of 8 repititions. I can do 3 reps per set, which btw I think is a huge accomplishment. So, I will do 3 pull-ups and 5 close-grip push-ups until I get strong enough to do more reps of the pull-ups.

That's it...quick post today, got a busy day ahead, will post again today if I get a chance...if not, then tomorrow.

Until next time...

Congrats Joania,

Not sure if you read Oxygen mag but this month there is an article that shows you a way to get stronger for the pull-ups without doing the pull-ups.

Check it out!

Yay! Another pound is a good thing - well done you! And I bet gradually you will be able to do those pull-ups (I can't even do one, lol).

I love playing with your fish in your sidebar - they are so cute!

I can't even do one pull up! You go girl.

I was inspired this weekend to get off my lazy ass and start doing something. I don't know what inspired me and I'm not sure how long it will last, haha! I started biking with Lilah, about 20 kms...and a 20 minute stop in the park half way to make her feel better about the whole thing! Haha, who am I kidding, the break was for me!

Anyway, all that to say, your journey is amazing, you have great will power girl, YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS! So excited for ya!
