Weight Loss Update: 01/14/09

Posted by AJ Huffman |

Well after everything that went on last week, I didn't stick to my diet and exercise routine.  There was so much food brought to Mom's house, there wasn't enough room for it all.  But I did try, my best to eat healthy and not eat too much.  Some friends from Journey (Michael and Lou Arnold) stopped by and brought me some fruit, in which I was grateful. That helped me stick to my diet a lot.  


So after all that I started back fresh this past Monday.  Closed my eyes and stepped on the scales Sunday night, and when I opened my eyes to see the damage, I breathed a sigh of relief.  I only gained 2 pounds.

So I started back hot and heavy this past Monday.  I'm still drinking my slim fast for breakfast, but I'm now counting Weight Watcher Points.  I'm writing down what I eat everyday and drinking plenty of water.  Monday was a good day in the exercise department.  Got my 15 minutes of walking in place in front of the TV taken care of early that morning.  Then after work my son and I drove to Mom's house and walked for about 25 minutes around her neighborhood.  I was going to try and wait till Sunday to weigh myself again, but last night Drew wanted to check his weight, and I couldn't help myself, I had to know.  I stepped on the scales and it showed I dropped 6 pounds.  I shook my head and wiped my eyes and tried it again.  I dropped from 342 to 336, in two days.  So I'm pumped, and it's motivated me even more.   And I want to thank everyone who has been encouraging me on this journey.  Hopefully this time next year, you'll see a different looking AJ.
