The above was my weight at JC this morning. Oddly enough, it was slightly less than what I weighed on my scale at home first thing in the morning: 217.8. Go figure.

This translates to 3.5 lbs lost my first week back on JC. Hooray! I was actually a little uncertain about whether I would lose weight at all because I only followed the plan religiously for five of the seven days, and I did relatively little exercise. During the entire week, I lifted weights twice, did a total of less than 20 minutes on the elliptical trainer, and went for 3-4 20-minute-or-more walks with the dogs. (Walking the dogs, while still technically "exercise," does not get my heart rate up to an aerobic level.)

I would have to get down to 199 to be at a 10% loss from my starting weight of 221.1. Even if I lose an average of 2 lbs a week, that should still take 9-10 more weeks.

Onward and upward, er, downward. At least the scale is once again moving down and not up. Baby steps.
