I thought I'd start using the training journal section to log my weight-loss quest.

My work is putting on a contest based on the TV show The Biggest Loser.
The top 3 people with the largest % of bodyweight lost will win some nice prize packages.

We started May 14th and I weighed in at 246 LBS
I lost 8.5 LBS in my first week (mostly water no doubt)
My last weigh-in was last Wednesday at 233 LBS

I've taken up running again which has historically melted the pounds away on me.
Tonight I ran my first longer run of 45 minutes.
My ankle is a bit sore but not terribly so.

The final weigh-in for the contest is June 29th
Wish me luck!!!!

Thanks

There is one guy who seems to be losing a lot of weight. 3 weeks in a row he has lost 5LBS
He doesn;t really do much exercise, he has just cut down his food consumption.

I like the show too .
I wasn't sure about it at first because I was worried that it would be a bit of a freakshow (making fun of the overweight people) but they have done the show very tastefully.

I kind of miss Jillian Michaels though (I liked her "bootcamp" approach)

Whoaaa
Nasty run tonight!! It was very hot and humid out.
Again, I kinda liked it!

weird huh?

finished my route in 36:37 and felt very strong. Sweaty, but strong!

If my ankle can hold up, I see no reason why I couldn't go back to the half-marathon distance. :D

There's always a walker...I can imagine you may even be able to do a full marathon with one of those.

I was thinking of running with those wheelie shoes that the kids wear. That way I could coast half the course

Yeah but that requires standing for extended periods of time...I think maybe you should use both.

I suck at running. I am about your size and have all kinds of problems trying to run. But good luck to you anyways! I will stick to the elyptical.

Thanks, I don't know why but I just love the feeling of running.
I really should make sure I don't get carried away. (opening for vegan potter here....)
It's extremely hot and humid here again.
Believe it or not I'm just going out for a run right now. Even my kids think I'm nuts

another sweaty one!!!

35 minutes. It really didn't feel like 35. I feel like my speed is coming back.
The heat and humidity make it pretty tough though.

I was originally going to hit the weights tonight but I just couldn't resist the chance to have another sweat filled workout in the humidity.

I'm at that point where I fell like my body is getting pretty toned EXCEPT for my gut!!!! So true that it is the last thing to go. I know that if I am consistent I'll see the results. It's frustrating nevertheless :x

You've got a bit more weight to lose before anyone carries you away.
