Week 18

Weight: 317.2

Weight lost in one week: 1.4
Total weight lost: 51.2
Average weekly weight loss: 2.84

Weight left to lose: 77.2
Weeks left at average loss: 27.18
Estimated total weeks: 45.18 (about 10.42 months)

This week's goal will continue on the theme of exercise. My weight loss was less this week, but that's actually pretty good, since I had my family reunion, took a day off work, and had my company's National Sales Meeting (where there's drinking and lots of eating). So, here are my goals:

Burn 2,700 Calories on the elliptical
4 3 mile walks
Do 500 calf raises
Do 250 sit ups
Jump rope for 12 minutes
Try planks

Please keep praying for my journey. And may God bless you all on your journeys.

BJ, I wouldn't be unhappy at all with the weight loss for the week. The unfortunate fact is that the weight loss will begin to slow at some point as it is harder for your body to lose the same amount of weight as you get smaller.

Great work on the exercise, and the goals for next week look good. Keep it up!

I just navigated to your blog for the first time, and was skimming when I saw your "Burn 2700 calories on the elliptical" goal. For a second I thought you meant in one go, and I was thinking "oh my god this person is crazy".

I am relieved that once I actually read it (that helps) it was a much less insane goal. :)

Cheers - Dani.

Thanks for the encouragement, Steve! I know that I'll have to adjust my exercising and eating in order to keep my weight loss up. A body that is 50 pounds lighter needs less Calories, but also needs more activity to burn the same amount of Calories. That's part of why I'm trying to ratchet up my exercise each week and plan on decreasing my diet some more.

Dani, I can totally understand your reaction. But, who knows? Maybe one day I'll try to burn 2,700 Calories in one try. that would probably take me 2 hours and 15 minutes...okay, maybe that'll NEVER happen! :)

Thanks for both of your support!
