My insanity weight loss progress through April 24, 2010

The good news: I lost weight.

The bad news: It was only 3 pounds.

Actually this isn’t totally bad news. Considering that I spent four of the first six days this week learning the program I can say that to lose any weight in the first week of any program that changes as much as this one does is a win. In fact, as I look back, I can clearly see that I lost no weight in my first week of Insanity. So I am happy about losing some weight this week.

I am now 23.5 pounds lighter than when I first started Insanity. I am 16 pounds away from hitting my first of two weight goals, the first being to reach 250 pounds, the second being to reach 220 pounds. I have three weeks to get to 250 on Insanity. I wonder if I can do it?

  1. Just to let you know I haven’t commented for a while, but I’m still following you buddy! 🙂 keep it up

  2. One thing to remember is that there is some degree of muscular swelling whenever you up the level of intensity of a workout regimen. Many people on Insanity seem to experience slight weight gain the first week (which can be very frustrating) since the body’s response to overtaxed muscle is to send in the fluids. That would also explain why you lost such so much more weight your third week, as your body began to adapt to the workload and your fluid balance went back to normal, unmasking your significant loss in fat.

    You might be seeing something similar here, with your first week of Max exercises. Since weight can fluctuate so much due to water, I’d encourage you not to get hung up on the weekly numbers, but rather look at the overall trend, which is looking great. And enjoy your rest day!

  3. Those are very good point Maciej. I’m actually not too concerned with the numbers at the moment. I know what I want to achieve and while it is a little disappointing to not see big losses every week, I’m at peace with it. I know I am physically in better shape now than I was a week ago, let alone at the beginning. That, but itself, is reward enough.

    I still have three weeks to go until I complete Insanity. I’m sure by then my weight will be lower and I will be looking for the next thing I can get involved with that will help me improve my health even further.
