Weigh-In: 242 lbs

Nutrisystem 10 lb awardThis day marks three weeks of being on Nutrisystem and applying Strong Advice: Zuby’s Guide to Fitness for Everybody.

Result: 10.4 lbs lost (now at 242 lbs).

I should note that’s with the second week including Thanksgiving, resulting in a 0.2 lb gain.

My hope is to lose 2 lbs a week…and it sure seems doable now. 🙂

Zuby & Nutrisystem

Okay folks, I am going to get serious and lose some weight. Can you believe that, this morning, I clocked in at 252.4 pounds?! 🙁

Strong Advice book coverMy approach this time? Nutrisystem’s Uniquely Yours Max+ plan and following guidance from Zuby’s book, Strong Advice: Zuby’s Guide to Fitness for Everybody.

The first week of Nutrisystem is pretty tight (1,000 calories per day), but Zuby’s “strong advice” is one of calorie reduction (calories in less than calories out) and exercise.

Which I did this morning. 🙂

(I should note that Zuby’s book does not recommend such a low number of calories…instead he would just shave off 20% of what my body needs to maintain its weight. 20% is the highest he recommends, and it’s for us…errr…folks with the greatest opportunity to shed pounds.)

Either way, join me on my journey? I did snap some before pictures, but I think I will save the embarrassment of sharing those until I have a couple of decent “during” ones to go with them. 🙂
