Weekly Weigh-In #6: 236.9 lbs.

Gain/loss of: -1.6 lbs.

Weekly average: 2.80 lbs. lost

Current stats with 42 weeks to go. If I lose:

  • 1 pound a week: 42 pounds (195 pounds at goal date)
  • 1.5 pounds a week: 63 pounds (174 pounds at goal date)
  • 2 pounds a week: 84 pounds (153 pounds at goal date)

Disappointment. Sheer and utter disappointment this week when compared to previous weeks. But let’s move on.

As it stands, I’m averaging 2.80 lbs. lost per week which is ahead of doctor recommended goal of 1-2 lbs. per week. This is how I planned to lose it and how it seems to be unfolding so even if this week’s results were disappointing, I’m happy about being above my recommendation.

If I keep going at this rate, I will be at 200 lbs. in 13 weeks–around the week of July 14, 2008–rather than my 40th birthday. Woah, that’s waaaay ahead of schedule! Guess that means I’ll have to go for 185 lbs. but we’ll see if meeting my goal weight early even comes to fruition.

My goal for next week: 234.0, or a drop of 2.9 lbs.

Gotta go!

NOTE: After tinkering around with Excel I noticed my calculations for my weekly average lost were off. From this point on they will be correct 🙂
