Weigh-in Wednesday

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 | by Samantha | Labels: |

Today is the first installment of Weight-in Wednesday! Where, every Wednesday, we will tell you, yes you, how much we weigh! No really, we're going to tell you. We know it won't be easy to reveal such information to the world, but it is an important part of our journey. We are not happy with where we are but, this is the first step, and it's an important one. So, here goes!

Sam:
Starting weight (1.4.2010): 179.6 pounds
Current weight (4.21.2010): 171.4 pounds
That is a loss of 8.2 pounds!
What I did: I am more conscience of what I eat (but still have to get a lot better) and I also started a job a few weeks ago where I am on my feet the entire time. This is a huge factor in this number, which, honestly, just started to go down in the last couple weeks.

Jason:
Starting weight (1.4.2010): 216.6 pounds
Current weight (4.21.2010): 200.6 pounds
That is a loss of 16 pounds!
What I did: I have been running more and more, building up my endurance for a half marathon. Currently I run 4 times a week -- 3-5 miles during the week and 9 miles on Sunday.

** Please keep in mind, these numbers have been going up and down over the past 4 months. We started wanting to be more healthy at the beginning of the year (like many many other people) and have been tracking our weight since then. Please don't think that we are being crazy and posting huge losses right off just because we can... we just want to let everyone know where we started. :-) We will be measuring our total weight loss, as well as the weight lost/gained in the previous week from now on. **

Well, that's it! Stayed tuned every Wednesday where we weigh in and reflect on what we are doing right (or wrong) and how we can improve.
