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!"

Weight Check 9/24/10


Last Friday: 278.8
Today: 277.1
Gain/Loss: -1.7
Cumulative: 24.9
Pounds to lose: 67.1
Comment: The loss was a pleasant surprise. With as stressful this week was at work, I ate more, and thought I'd be up. I managed to the afternoon off today because I have to work on Sunday, so I plan to enjoy the rest of the day.

Gain/Loss: +1.3 lbs.
Goal: 140.0 lbs.
Cumulative: 33.6 lbs.
Pounds to lose: 9.2
Comment: I overate on the weekend. Now that Im lower in my weight, it takes longer to work off the overeating. I did get two good runs in this week and was able to maintain my calories for the week. I guess a lb up isnt bad!
