Losing Weight - Finally!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Last year, when I signed up with Belletoday.com, I weighed 144 lbs. This weight kept on seesawing back and forth as much as every two days - going down to 140 lbs then 137 lbs then up to 142 lbs all in one week. I guess it's water retention. It was frustrating.

Last March when i started running during lunchtime, my weight stabilized at 140 lbs. Then in April, I decided to reduce the amount of rice I ate. I'm not a big rice eater so it was not a problem for me. I eat rice mostly because it's easy to cook, rice and main dish of meat or fish, daily Filipino fare.

Imagine my surprise when I weighed today to find I now weigh 136 lbs. I've lost 8 pounds since March. Here is my weight tracker at Belletoday.


What I've been doing that worked for me:

M-W-F : Running around the basketball court at lunch time 40 times broken up in 10s. 10 runs then 2 walks then 10 runs again until I reach 40 runs.

Weight training: 3 sets of 20 reps with dumbbells three times a week on alternate days
Standing Tricep Extenstion, 2-Arm Tricep Kickback, Lateral raise with external rotation, bench dips, Lunges, Arm curls and Plank. It's not much but I don't want to overload myself.

Hopefully I reach my goal by the end of the year.

Congrats on your achievement on your weight goals....take it slow, that's right...it will come there. If you take it drastically, it might come back quickly.
