Week 16

Still moving forward -- 291.  Total of 75.

I did purchase a new watch with a heart rate monitor.  It keeps track of calories burned, fat percentage burned and fitness level.  You enter your stats (height, weight, age) and it calculates max HR for your age and helps you stay in fat burning or fitness levels during your workout.  It is also compatible with the equipment at the gym, giving me a constant HR reading on the display.  The watch is a Polar FT40.

Week 15 report

Scale read 294 this morning.  Not necessarily the weight I was looking for, but it'll work.  I do have some other reportable items to share:

Neck size:  March 21.5"     Today 17"
Waist size:  March 58"     Today 52"

I've added some additional measurements, too, so that I can track how my body is adjusting to a more intensive cardio regimen.  I'm sure I have lost some additional inches in my legs and arms over the past two weeks, but did not get it recorded.  It certainly feels that I have.
