It’s the first day of summer and I can happily say that I feel worlds better today than I did 7 weeks ago. I’ve learned a lot since starting this challenge and have a lot of be proud of.
While It stinks to have not lost more weight, the scale can’t always determine my success.
Starting Weight: 230.0 (May 3, 2013)
Last Week’s Weigh-In: 229.0
This Weigh-in: 228.8
Total Weight Loss: -1.2
Over the past 7 weeks I have been engaged in a lot of healthy habits including…
- Tracking my calories daily
- Working out 5 days a week
- Doing the Best Body Bootcamp
- Eating more smoothies and produce
- Not eating after 7PM (except when I have a social event)
- Eating more clean foods
All of these habits have left me feeling better about myself and feeling more confident in my body. A few weeks ago Neal started to comment on the changes he was seeing in my body and last week I started to see them too.

Although I only lost 1.2pounds, I did lose 10.5 inches which says a lot about my diet and lifestyle. It’s a great starting place as the summer begins and as I finish up my first week of Best Body Bootcamp, but I have a lot I want to accomplish over the next couple of months.
With football coming to a close mid summer (August 3 if we make it to the Super Bowl) I am eager to get back into running and to pick up my cardio workouts. Cardio has always been a huge contributor to my weight loss and although football requires a lot, there’s just something about going for a long run and taking a couple spin classes a week.
7 weeks ago, I challenged you to make changes to your life so that when today arrived you’d feel free, confident, and alive.
