Ted - Phase 2 - Day 15 - Weigh In

OK, I know I said I was only going to weigh every 17 days. But day 17 of Phase 2 landed on a Sunday and as I discussed in the previous post, weighing in on a Monday is a very bad idea for me. So I checked in a little early since Friday is usually a good day and we start Phase 3 Monday.

How did I do? Ok, lost about 2 lbs more and over all I'm now down about 15/16 give or take a 1/10 I think.

I will say I'm not disappointed, 2 pounds in 2 weeks is what I was expecting. Bring us back to the universal one pound/one week equilibrium. I did not expect the higher number I lost in Phase 1 to continue, so I was prepared for it.

Could I have done better? Absolutely. First off I haven't been exercising. This is something I have to get going. I simply will not be successful long term with out working in some exercise. Second, my work situation over the last two weeks has been problematic and stressful. Leading to days where I skipped lunch, skipped snacks, ate too late, didn't hardly drink water and green tea was non existent. It's just really messed with my daily schedule. So, I can't blame the diet for any lack of loss, I simply didn't do a very good job following it as I should.

More thoughts later.


  1. Ted try working in some sprints to your treadmill workout. It actually makes the time go by much quicker. I do a sprint every 5 minutes. Its not an all out sprint, but i go from running at 5.2 to 6 mph for 1 minute. The time seems to fly by, when you recover its time to sprint again. I run anywhere from 30-40 minutes with headphones on and a tv in from of me. Hopefully there is some kind of sporting event on.
    My progress so far is 13,3,2 pounds the first 3 weeks. I weigh in on sunday mornings. we are on day 9 cycle 2.
    Anyways, I hope this helps. It realy sucks on the treadmill. cant wait for the weather to get better here so we can get outside and run.

  2. sorry my math was wrong, it was 10,3 and 2

  3. Joe, Good idea on the sprints, it's similar to Tabata.
