This week's number is:
The scale reports I've lost exactly 5.0 pounds since my last weigh-in two weeks ago. This puts my weight at 321 pounds and my total weight loss at 165 pounds. Once again, as has been the trend for a while now, I fell slightly short of my goal of losing 1% of my body weight per week. This time, however, this now puts me slightly below my goal of 1% per week as measured from February 8th, which is when I first set that as a goal. How slightly? 0.56 pounds! In the twelve weeks since Feb. 8th I've lost 40 pounds and spent most of that time ahead of my goal. Seeing how my weight loss in that time has been mostly effortless I believe the goal of 1% of my body weight per week is not only reasonable, but quite doable. Therefore I will continue forward with that same goal! I much preferred being slightly ahead of my goal though, so will put in a bit of effort and see if I can steer it that direction over the next two weeks!
