Weigh-in no. 34

Happy Easter!

Today's weigh-in day and a chance to see how this whole protein supplement thing has been working, so here we go....

Weigh-in no. 34 (-1.6)

Starting weight:  327.0
Last week:          280.0
This week:          278.4      
Loss of                 - 1.6
Total Loss           - 48.6 lbs


Seriously, I feel so much better.  While this week has been different in that I've been trying to be much more aware of what I'm putting in nutritionally (that makes it sound as if I wasn't before, but I just wasn't paying attention to protein), the struggle I wrote about on Monday has pretty much gone.

And in case folks are wondering, I'm not lowering carbs by upping my protein (at least not intentionally).  I'm just having the protein supplements instead of other snacks I would have had, and the Powerbar I'm eating is pretty high carb (25g).   Where I'm losing calories is more in the sheer volume of what I'm eating has been reduced (because my body isn't telling me I'm hungry all the time) and in fat calories (1g fat = 9 calories; 1g protein = 4 calories) as the supplements are pretty low in fat content.

Either way, that's my week!  Let's see what next week holds and here's to hoping that the 280s are truly gone!

How's your week been?  
Any big plans for Easter Weekend, the Bank Holidays (if you're in the UK), the Royal Wedding or anything else?


  1. Congratulations. I am glad you are not fighting that gnawing hunger we have all experienced. Did you notice that instead of giving up you found a solution? Would you have done that a year ago?

  2. Congrats! That is awesome! I'm sure not only does it feel great to lose weight but it must also feel good not to feel so hungry all the time.
