Week 8 Progress Report

Hey friends, thanks for checking in with me for the Week 8 Progress Report. I have weighed in this week at 164.8 pounds and so I am down 0.2 pounds since last week. That doesn’t sound like a ton of progress, but considering that I seriously went off the wagon in the middle of the week on desserts, I’m pretty ecstatic that there was any loss at all. I’m determined to stay more focused on my goal, especially now that there is only four weeks to go.

The reason you always hear, “the last five pounds are the toughest to lose,” is because as you lose the weight, you have to work harder in your workouts to burn the same amount of calories and the way to lose weight is to make sure you are regularly in a calorie deficit. So, making sure you eat correctly and at the correct times combined with getting in a sufficient workout can get harder because you workout longer, therefore working harder to burn the same amount of calories, yet intaking the same amount of food. It’s a difficult concept, but one you have to stick to. I cannot wait to get to the point of just maintaining. But, I’ve got to earn it.

Thanks for checking in with me for the Week 8 Progress Report on Rebuilding Rome, I will see you all next week!
