I sort of hit a weight plateau during my 5th week of dieting. Between that plateau and being on vacation, I did a bad thing and started eating the wrong stuff. Then, I would start to move in the right direction again. Then, I would fall off the wagon again.
For three weeks, my weight shifted a couple pounds up and a couple pounds down depending upon whether I had a good day or bad day. In fact, here's how my weight has shifted recently:
Week 4: 25.8 lbs lost
Week 5: 24.8 lbs lost
Week 6: 26.4 lbs lost
Week 7: 23.4 lbs lost
Basically, I gained a little over 2 pounds during my 3-week battle. But that all ended during this past week.
During the past week, two things have changed. First, I started walking each morning with Tammy, Will and Hannah. Second, I stayed pretty self-disciplined on what I ate. As a result, I was able to trim off 7.4 pounds this week, which has me down to 30.8 lbs lost overall!

I walked around 18 miles this week and plan to continue walking this week. Not only have they helped me lose weight and get refocused on my health, but they've also been a wonderful excuse to spend time outside with my family.
If all goes well this week, I should begin training for the Atlanta Half-Marathon on August 29. Fingers crossed!
