I started out at 268 pounds at the beginning of February. Today, May 20, I’m at 243 pounds. That’s a loss of 25 pounds. In fourteen weeks. Calculate that out and, on average, I’ve lost 1.8 pounds/week.
Those of you who are paying attention to my weight journey here on my blog will recall that my goal for my four months on Nutrisystem was to be “around 240 pounds”. Well, with two weeks left to go I’m sure getting close. In fact, as you can see from my Withings reading this week, I’m at 243.1 which means it’s not much of a step to get down to 242.
Actually, if 1.8 pounds is my average weight loss, I should be able to slip in just under 240 by the time I hit my 16 week mark. Amazing.
I’ve also been using a really slick Withings WS30 wifi scale that calculates weight, body mass index (even though that’s probably a fairly useless measure, as I’ve written about before) and percentage of body fat. All useful to track and the online graphs and mobile app make it fun and easy. But this week a new Withings scale showed up, the WS50. This one’s black instead of white (see pic below) and adds a few more interesting data points: heart rate and air quality.
Yes, it’s sitting on the floor in the bathroom and it’s measuring air quality.
Hmmm… did they think that through? 🙂
Actually, it’s measuring CO2 — carbon monoxide — levels and while I can’t find an hour-by-hour measure through the app, the scale itself shows this data and it’s fascinating to see how in the middle of the night my CO2 is at zero, while in the middle of the day it’s high enough for the scale to flag “bad” air quality. Meanwhile, 40′ away, my high-end Kidde CO2 detector hasn’t budged from its reading of 0 since I installed it (see my video). I’ll be asking Withings what it all means, needless to say.
Oh! And last week I said I’d post a photo of the slimmer me. Here I am, and this is from a few weeks ago:
Now it’s time to finish my smoothie and get to the gym for my daily workout!
