Even though I could use the weights, […]

Lose Weight: Week 7 Summary

Day 1 – 54.8 kgs / 120.8 lbs Day 7 – 53.4 kgs / 117.7 lbs The beginning of the week was not very successful, mostly because the weight continued to jump back and forth. The smaller is your weight in general, the more sensitive it is to anything you have IN your body. Meaning you can drink a cup of water, or forget to go to the WC before checking the weight, and voila, you have 2 lbs more than yesterday! This can be very depressing, of course. This is why we have to remember all those things. However, […]

Lose Weight: Week 6 Summary

Day 1 – 55.8 kgs / 123 lbs Day 7 – 54.5 kgs / 120.2 lbs This week was pretty successful in terms of weight loss. Since I play the role of guinea pig, and experience all the processes in real time, I do recall some crucial rules of weight loss immediately while I am going through this or that stage. I have lost weight successfully before, but I have never tried to somehow systematize the whole bunch of information. This is why I decided to go through the Marathon – to recall all the actual rules, pitfalls, and tips, […]

Lose Weight: Week 5 Summary

Day 1 – 55,9 kgs / 123.2 lbs Day 7 – 55,4 kgs / 122.1 lbs Very tiny progress this week due to dead stop in the weight loss plateau. However, at least this time I know the exact reason why. During the last week, I was stuck in the true weight loss plateau. The amount of calories I burned became the same with the amount of calories I consumed, so the process of losing weight stopped. If I was not pressed by the Marathon deadline, I would have given myself a break in the process and just allowed my […]

Lose Weight: Week 4 Summary

Day 1 – 56,1 kgs / 123.7 lbs Day 7 – 55,8 kgs / 123 lbs As it becomes crystal clear from measurements during Week 4, I was dead stuck in the weight loss plateau. Although this might be surprising for some people whom I tell that I am a weight loss expert, this is not a surprise for me. If I disappoint you, I am sorry, but weight loss plateau is something no one can avoid, even the expertest expert in weight loss. I have written about weight loss plateau here earlier, because I have stumbled upon this phenomenon several […]

Lose Weight: Week 3 Summary

Day 1 – 57,3 kgs Day 7 – 56,1 kgs  Week 3 showed a good progress as I managed to lose 1,2 kgs. I paid special attention to my diet, because at home, I have no opportunity to move physically as much and for such lengthy periods of time as I could in the village. Of course I do my workouts, but I wished I could spend more time being physically active. So, since physical activity decreased, I had to balance my eating more, to support the deficit of calories and stimulate fat burning. Plus, I do some beauty procedures […]

Lose Weight: Week 2 Summary

My whole week 2 was spent in the village where my relatives live. Only once I had a possibility to check my weight, being fully dressed, including warm socks, because it was very, very cold. I walked about two miles each day, or rode a bicycle, visiting my grandma on the other end of the village. I also worked a lot, and had no time (and desire) to eat more than I needed. Moderate physical training – in my case, walking – supress appetite a lot. As a result, I have lost about 2 lbs (not sure, will double-check my […]

Lose Weight: Week 1 Summary

This was the first week of Weight Loss Marathon. I entered the weight loss marathon part with the weight of 57,5 kgs / 126,8 lbs, and soon after that I travelled to Western Ukraine to see my relatives. So now I honestly do not know how much do I weight. I will find out about my weight as soon as I come back to Kyiv.  These days, I walk a lot, covering all the distance between the houses of my relatives – my aunt and uncle, my sister, and my grandmother – on foot. Also, I have a small nephew […]
