Week 5 weigh in

This week was not a big loss. I didn’t meet my goal. I only lost 1.4 pounds this week. I am happy for a loss, but there are no obvious reasons as to why I didn’t lose more…. I worked out as I should, burning at least 500 during my workouts and cardio. I only surpassed my calorie limit one day, and I tried to make up for it by spending an hour and a half on the ellipitical (which try to tell me I burned 804 calories, when bodybugg said 491). This week my daily average calorie burn for the day was 3111 and my calorie intake averaged 1332. That is a daily average deficit of 1779.

So to make sure I’m still on track, I took measurements (in inches). Here they are:

Neck: 13.5 – was 14 – started at 14
Chest: 42.5 – was 43.5 – started at 44
Upper Arm: 14.25 – was 14.5 – started at 15
Fore Arm: 10.25 – was 10.5 – started at 11
Waist: 41 – was 42.5 – started at 43.5
Hips: 49 – was 51 – started at 53
Thigh: 28.5 – was 29.5 – started at 30
Calf: 18.25 – was 18.5 – started at 18.5

So there is great loss in my chest, waist and hips. I am fitting into a pair of jeans I haven’t been able to wear since before I had my now almost 2 year old. That is AWESOME!

It’s still discourging when it’s such a small number. If things haven’t improved by mid week, then I will re-eval, if not better by next way in, then I’ll make a change.
