It’s been two months since I last had a weigh-in Wednesday post. I haven’t stopped weighing myself. I just didn’t have anything new to say. After initially making progress toward my goal of 118, I hit a plateau. When I was traveling to races every weekend, I couldn’t lose more weight during the week than I gained on the weekends. Often, I couldn’t even break even. My weight was bouncing between 120 and 122.
This week, I had an encouraging weigh-in. I dropped to 119.4 pounds. That’s down from 121.6 last week.
I didn’t have a race last weekend. That allowed me to make progress on my weight. Aside from eating fewer restaurant meals, I also had the opportunity to continue my training through the weekend. Today was the 10th consecutive day that I ran at least once. During that span, I ran 111 total miles. I also did a few weight training workouts.
Today I leave on a five day trip to Austria for the Vienna City Marathon. I’m told that Vienna is a city where you always want to save room for dessert. If it’s anything like Paris, I’ll gain weight.
I made progress while I had the chance. For now, that’ll have to do.
