Weigh 2 Win Challenge

After this mornings weigh in I have two more weeks left of the Weigh 2 Win challenge through my work’s wellness program.  The challenge was not the beginning, nor will it be the end of my weight loss crusade, but since I was checking my weight weekly anyway it was another way to keep track of it.  I started the Challenge at 315 pounds. (I had already lost 30 from 345).  In the first 10 weeks I’ve lost 25 pounds.  I stalled out for several weeks right around 300 which was a big hurdle for me, probably physically and mentally, so my average loss is only 2.5 pounds a week.  I’ve had some weeks I’ve lost 5, some weeks I’ve lost 0, so it averages out.  If I can stick with my average for the next two weeks I should lose about 5 more pounds in the last two weeks, although I’ve been at 290 the last two weeks.

I also signed up yesterday for my next 5K, the Greek Festival 5K in Winston Salem.  My race number gets me into the Festival for free, and I know I won’t leave without trying some of the delicious Greek food, but hopefully I won’t go too overboard.   I have a terrible weakness for baklava.

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
