Months 6 and 7
January and February, 2 months of poor results. Week 22 and 23 looked promising and since our winter was very mild I managed to get a few walks in. The scale was still going in the right direction. Week 26 was 6 months straight with a loss. I went back through a post on MY Fitness Pal and I said, "I've never stuck with anything this long before in my life." Which is very true, my mind tends to wander after a few months of anything. Week 26 rolls around and I got sick. If I remember correctly it was the flu. Zapped all of my energy and as you can see, the next 3 weeks I didn't even get 1 min of exercise in. I lost 3.2 lbs on week 27 somehow but week 28 it finally happened. I gained weight! From being sick and not stepping a foot outside, I knew it was going to happen. I was in the 260's so I was still pleased with my progress. Week 29 rolled around, CRAP! Another gain but with the weather slowly getting better I knew I would be outside walking again soon. I only lost 5.6 lbs the first 2 months of 2012 but that still put me at a total of 71 lbs! I'm now in the 260's which is what I graduated high school at in 1996. I'm 9 lbs away from my 2nd goal of another 40 lbs lost. Getting sick did set me back but I was a man on a mission. I wanted to see 250's on the scale again. Another small victory was that I've logged into My Fitness Pal for 205 days in a row!
