Default Tracking my weight loss journey....again

Logging into this site keeps me accountable. I'll be keeping a monthly tally of my personal weight loss as well as joining a few challenges and accountability threads.
Previously I'd given up french toast until I could reach 200 lbs. I was down to 212 before I started to regain. This time I'm giving up all fast food (not restaurants), even on cheat days, until I'm below 200 lbs.
Let's go!
Start weight: 270
Started working out with a personal trainer.
7/3 268.7
7/4 269.4
7/5 267
7/6 271.5
7/7 270
7/8 267.3
7/9 268.3
7/10 268
7/11 266.8

So far so good! This is all circuit weight training. His client's results are amazing.
My knee has been giving me issues and I wanted to avoid any boot camp style training which I have done multiple times in the past, all with resulting knee pain.
Once my knee feels better, I will start walking again! Walking ALWAYS works for me because I tend to do 5 mile tracks and it always leads to other activities such as hiking and skating.
Which reminds me....I wanted to go skating today! :-)

your weight loss progress is amazing!

You're off to a great start. Hiking is one of my fave physical activities. Even when it's a bit strenuous, being outside and in nature makes it feel less like a workout. I'll have to give skating a try; haven't done it since I was a kid but that sounds like fun.

Good luck!

LGW, I agree on walking! It's my primary exercise, and leads to hiking and other stuff. Plus I think walking is an excellent way to make the body more insulin sensitive, which helps with weight loss as well.

What kind of skating do you do? I don't ice skate much, but I do enjoy inline skating (rollerblading). I haven't done that in a while, but it's fun! And what a workout for the hip flexors!

I just want to let you know your progress is inspiring. Happy to know your working with your trainer but EagleRiverDee is right, walking and even hiking are somethings you should do to be active even outside the gym. I run and walk every day as well as lift weights, along with keeping track of my calories and the nutrients I'm putting in my body. BUT I know you will achieve your ultimate goal, you are driven and hard working, and very intelligent by looking at this journey as a lifestyle change not only to enhance your body but to enhance your way of life!

Thanks to all of you for your inspiring words and encouragement. That's one reason I logged back into this site.

Start Weight: 270 (started weight training with a personal trainer)
​​​​​7/3 268.7
7/4 269.4
7/5 267
7/6 271.5
7/7 270
7/8 267.3
7/9 268.3
7/10 268
7/11 266.8
7/12 266.8
7/13 267.1
7/14 267.8
7/15 267
7/16 266.4

I’ve been weight training for 2 weeks. I’ve NEVER lifted weights.
It’s ok; however, it doesn’t bring the “scale” losses that I’m used to
with walking. I’ve noted (maybe) a small decrease in my stomach size.

I also don’t get that adrenaline rush I get after a good walk!
Because of the knee pain, I have to hang in there with the weights so that I’m doing something. I also paid for 3 months to force myself to commit.
I did get in a short walk around the neighborhood and that felt good.

I decided not to go skating. I don't want to injure my knee early in the journey.
I do old school 4 wheel skates, not in-line. I don't even know the proper term for "regular" skates LOL

At least I have 1 NSV, I haven’t had any fast food in 2 weeks!

Great NSV, definitely a change when trainer sent me before and after pictures from 3 week ago. I'll stick with it.

Good morning, I hope that everyone is doing well.
Checking in at 262.1 this morning, I did reach a new low of 260.8 yesterday. I always get a 2lb weight gain after working a 12 hour shift.

My goal is 259 tomorrow. :-)

Weight training is going well. I would say that my knee pain is 99.9% gone. I've been able to walk more, but not my 5 mile stretch. I even went to a step aerobics class.
I had to modify a few moves but it was great to be back after 2 years.

I definitely need cardio with weight training to see my numbers move, but the inches are coming off.
My co-worker took a picture of my pants yesterday to let me know they were too big. NSV!

Welcome back LGW. The weight training might not show up on the scale but it will show up in your clothes, so keep it up. Also, stronger muscles will help with your walking, and will burn more calories even when you're not exercising.

It will be interesting to follow along and see your results.
