Plateau #1 BUSTED

After a two week plateau the scale is FINALLY moving in a positive direction. I’m now down to 303.6 lbs. That’s about 60 lbs less that my highest weight and a 27 lb loss from when I first started running.

I had noticed that my clothes were looser and my pace times were better, but it really sucks to not see improvement on the scale.  There are many factors that can affect weight such as water retention, muscle growth and even waste (you know, waste). Unfortunately measuring my weight is the only metric I have for charting success.

I’m about to introduce some lifting into my workout routine and am sure that’ll impact my weight loss too. Perhaps it’s time to bust out the tailor’s tape and start taking measurements instead.

      Definitely not fun. Especially when I’m soooo close to being below 300 lbs.
