I haven’t written much because during Week 9 I was sick with a chest cold. During Week 10 I had an eye infection (not pink eye) and was on a strong antibiotic. Then Week 11 (this past week) I was sick with a cold again. Through it all I continued to go to the gym and sweat it out. Leading in to Week 9 I think I lost 1/4 pound. After Week 9 I lost 1.5 pound. But after Week 10, I lost 6.5 pounds.
I think Monday will be the true test (after week 11) because I feel like the only reason I lost 6.5 pounds was because I was pretty sick the weekend before the Monday. So I’ll let you know in a couple of days when I weigh in again. 6.5 inches gone from the waist, 5 inches from the hips. 3 inches from the thigh. But both Dave and my trainer think I am continuing to lose weight at a faster clip because we finally got my metabolism going. Any way you look at it, I feel good and strong and am having a great time getting fit.
I also hurt my knee during week 10 while jump roping. Let’s just say I heard a pretty loud pop and then my leg buckled. I did not fall, but walking was difficult for a few days. I’ve been taking Motrin and icing.
