Weight Loss Progress: Week 8

So this is basically my life

A quick one for this week, my first weigh-in since my travels home.  3 weeks without a weight loss progress check.  How did I do?  Well, I didn’t gain weight, but I’ve not done as well as I would have hoped!

First things first: The numbers

  • Average daily calories (over the 3 week period): 2007.9
  • Total daily calorie deficit:120.1
  • Predicted weight loss for the past 3 weeks: 0.24lbs

Needless to say, I didn’t do as well as I could have with the meal plans whilst away.  However, I didn’t overeat either so my calculations predict that I’ll stay roughly the same weight.

What did I actually lose?

1lb.  A third of a pound per week.  I’ll take it, but really I should be doing better by this point!   

I'm now quite far behind plan. Not happy!

Weight loss total = 3.5lbs

3 and a half measly pounds in 8 long weeks.  You know, I really thought that starting the blog would keep me on track – but let’s be honest, there’s not much inspiration in reading about someone who’s losing 0.44lbs per week.

I must say though, I really see a difference now.  I bought size 14 clothes when back home in the UK last week (a size 10 for all you US folks), and it’s been a long time since I’ve been in a size 14!

So how’s this week been?

This week has been… quiet.  I’ve kept mostly on track with food, but exercise has suffered a little.  I’ve completed one gym session and two runs, one of which was today’s NYRR Jingle Bell Jog 4M (with 3.5M extra bonus running after the race)

Between now and Christmas, I have another couple of trips lined up for work and so the tracking will remain challenging.  But I really need to be trying harder.   Tomorrow I’m off to France for a few days, so my focus for this week is to find some time (and a local gym!) to keep up my training before next week’s 15k (and my final NYC marathon qualifier!!)

Amazing day today for running.  7.5M, my last long run before next week's 15k!

Have a great week everyone!
