Week #17 update

So it is that time again for my weekly update, I am going to be short and sweet today. I will have a more detailed one coming later today.

Here are the numbers for last week:

Starting……1/9……455.3……0 pds lost

Week #1……1/16……443.4……11.9 pds lost

Week #2……1/23……432.1……23.2 pds lost

Week #3……1/30……424.0……31.3 pds lost

Week #4……2/6……414.9……40.4 pds lost

Week #5……2/13……409.0……46.3 pds lost

Week #6……2/20……400.0……55.3 pds lost

Week #7……2/27……393.8……61.5 pds lost

Week #8……3/5……386.2……69.1pds lost

Week #9……3/12……379.8……75.5 pds lost

Week #10……3/19……374.5……80.8 pds lost

Week #11……3/26……366.9……88.4 pds lost

Week #12……4/2……360.4……94.9 pds lost

Week #13……4/9……3540.0……101.3 pds lost

Week #14……4/16……347.6……107.7 pds lost

Week #15……4/23……341.4……113.9 pds lost

Week #16……4/30……335.5……119.8 pds lost

Week #17……5/7……331.1……124 pds lost

That is only a loss of 4.2 this week. I know that is still a great week, but I really feel deflated, in large part due to the fact like there were several little things I didn’t do well, getting enough water being chief among them. I will revisit this last week later today, I wanted to get the update out this morning though.

  1. Awesome work man! When I was on HMR and got discouraged at a “low” week, what worked for me was looking at it as a percentage (loss for the week divided by current weight). This week you lost about 1.3% of your current body weight, the last week about 1.7%, so you’re in great shape… you have less to lose, so you lose less. You may want to prepare yourself mentally a bit as things start to slow down. It can be a difficult transition to make in your brain because you’re used to equating success with big weekly losses… when you get to a lower weight a big weekly loss means something is wrong.

    You may have weeks in the not-so-distant future where you plateau for a week or two, and they may kick you over to maintenance if you don’t meet their criteria. I kind of saw that coming for myself and I was still well above my goal weight, so I jumped ship from the program before it happened. I established my own healthy eating patterns because I didn’t really see much benefit to staying in such an expensive program since I knew that I needed to figure out how to make it stick long-term on my own. Have you given any thought to where you’re going to “land” weight and exercise/diet-wise after HMR?

    • I have always said that I want to be in the neighborhood of 225-240 when I am done. Exercise I can really see my self getting into cycling alot as well as weight lifting. I can tell you I am so looking forward to being able to eat Fruits and Veggies again.
