Ugh, let’s just get to it.

Weekly Weigh-In for July 17, 2018 (Week 14): 234.5 lbs.
Loss/Gain for the week: +1.5 lbs.
Total lost: 10.3 lbs.
Lean weight: 159.0
Weekly average loss (targeted goal: 1.14): 0.7 lbs.

Last week was rough, even more rough than the previous week. Without getting into details, I ate a lot — I tend to do this when I’m either angry or stressed, and this weekend I was most certainly stressed with what was happening in my life.

But despite all of that, I managed to go to the gym early each weekend morning where I ran 5k on the treadmill both days plus rode the stationary bike and did some ad crunches. I felt those for days afterward. The treadmill runs left me soaked from head to shoulders, definitely a good thing.

And while I’m getting more and more disappointed at my results, I’m going to give this one last try before I have a decision to make: stop blogging about it and really, really focus on losing the weight or quite simply, quit. I’m by no means a quitter but when you’re trying your best to get results and there’s very little to show for your efforts, that seems to be the only logical option. I’d hate to see myself do this but it’s becoming a more likely scenario.

One last-ditch effort is to keep track of my lean weight, or muscle mass (included in the stats at the top). I wouldn’t mind the gain if it were muscle which is why I’m going to start keeping track of it. Keep a eye on that for at least the next couple of weeks while I decide what to do here.

So that’s it. Hopefully there will be some better news next week.
