I was at 260 pounds yesterday afternoon before I went to see Infinity War – where I ate chicken tenders and a ton of popcorn – however this morning I’m all bloaty from the salt, so I’m around 262, so I’m just splitting the difference since I know it’s not actual weight gain.
Still going to the gym daily and doing 30-45 minutes on the elliptical, along with one small group strength training session each week. It really does seem to be helping, especially since I’ve been a little less strict about my eating. Burning an extra few calories a day definitely makes a difference.
On a side note – we had the end of challenge meeting at my gym and I came in second place for the most weight lost (just over 21 pounds). I actually lost the most pounds, but they ranked everyone as a percentage of total body weight (to make it more fare) and there was someone else who lost a higher percentage. Which is totally cool. She wasn’t in my group, but she also lost the most inches, and I hear she worked out like crazy through the whole challenge. Not that I was totally slacking, but I wasn’t killing myself either. Looking forward to the fall challenge to do it all over again. Also picked up a couple of free smoothies and a free year of locker use, as well. Would have had a $25 gift card too, but after they pulled my name a 3rd time, I figured I should really share the wealth some and asked them to draw again (and thankfully they pulled someone else’s name).

Even though I exercised more this week (gym every day for 30-45 minutes on the elliptical), it’s that time of the month and I ate a lot of salty stuff yesterday. So I’m good with just a pound.
On April 14, 2017 I started this journey. It’s been a wild up and down ride, but I’m still here and still journeying on. I’ve lost an entire person (current weight down is a little over 125 pounds), and know I still have another whole person to go, but the most important thing – I’m doing it. And… I will keep on doing it!!!

I went to the gym every day this week, except Sunday. Other than the small group thing I have on Mondays, which is mostly strength, I’m aiming for at least 30 minutes a day (45 is even better) on one of the recumbent elliptical machines they have. For the most part, I just throw on whatever show I’m currently watching and whenever the episode is done, then I’m good to go. I’m not doing anything super-intensive, but it’s an extra 150+ calories burned so it’s better than nothing. And hopefully, I’ll be able to work up from there, eventually getting to a place where I can make it a more intense workout.
My goal is to go at least 5 days a week, more if I’m feeling froggy. Here’s hoping I can stay motivated. XD

This was the last full week of the Transformation Challenge thingy at my gym, though the official last assessment for that isn’t until next weekend. I’m going to keep doing a small group training which will meet once a week (which I’ll have to miss at least one a month due to other commitments), but at least it will keep me motivated. I’m also planning to go on other days to do my own thing, assuming I don’t get lazy about it. We’ll just have to see how it goes.
