Weigh in 234.8 (plus0.6)

OK.

I am four weeks into kmy weight loss program. After two weeks of slight gains, I am averaging on the low end of an reasonable weight loss, a little over 1/2 pounds a week.

Hey I’ll take it, but…

I guess I was hoping for a quicker weight loss boost in the beginning (first month) considering that I am so over weight with some basic changes like no soda, no candy (vending machine snacks), and more fruits and veggies making a bigger weight impact.

I had a little excitement my second week with a five pound loss result, but most of that has been gained back.

The truth is that I have not been exercising much yet on my program and I am far from perfect with filling out all of my points.

All this means is that I need to step it up.

Update:
At first glance I thought that a 2.5 pound weight loss in a month was small potatoes, but now that I think about it it is not.

If someone told me that 2 years ago, I would lose 1/2 pound a week on average for 100 weeks, I would have been psyched.

About two years ago, was weigh under 220, so a 1/2 pound weight loss could have meant that I would have been at or near my goal weight.

Of course I did not lose 1/2 a week. I actually gains about 15 pounds in the last two years, which is where I am at today.

Happy Groundhog Day

Bill Murry Groundhog Day

Today is Groundhog Day, which will be forever remembered by the Bill Murry comedy with the same name.

This Movie has a certain appeal for those on weight loss program.

The movie is about weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murry) who find himself in a time wrap, repeating the same day (Groundhog Day) forever.

One of the iconic scenes in the film is when Phil’s pig out at the diner. Phil had come to terms with the reality that he will repeat the same day, day after day, which meant that he could eat whatever he wanted, as much as he wanted and have no impact on health, weight gain etc…

Maybe, many people on a weight loss program would love to repeat the same day, day after day and eat what they want with no consequences.

The reality is that food choice and the quantity of consumption do have consequences.
