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


Last Friday: 280.2

Today: 280.0

Gain/Loss: -0.2

Goal: 210.0 lbs.

Cumulative loss: 20.4 lbs.

Pounds to lose: 70.0

Comment: Seeing that I didn't track (or well manage) my eating this week, I didn't run on Monday, and had only a short run on Wednesday, I have no complaints.  I honestly expected to gain a couple this week, so I'll take what I can get.  I'm still on track with my planned loss of eight pounds per month, so I'll just get back on track from here and look forward to a better week ahead.
