Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

Friday weight check (week 2)

Last Friday: 295.2

Today: 296.4

Gain/Loss: +1.2

Goal: 210.0 lbs.

Pounds to lose: 86.4

Comment: Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. Mrs. F makes really good cookies, and I am very weak. I also will admit that I didn't control my portions as well as I should have (i.e., I shouldn't have taken seconds at a couple of meals), and I couldn't resist mid-morning goodies at the office one day this week.

Mrs. F
Last Friday: 180.8

Today: 180.9

Gain/Loss: +0.1

Pounds to lose: 30.9

Comment: I was relieved that I didn't gain more than I did. I guess I need to watch better what I eat next week. Having those cheese curds and that Moolatte from DQ probably wasn't the best idea. I passed it (and stopped) twice (coming and going) when attending one of our son's cross country meets. It was a long drive. I did order a Diet Coke!
