15 Pounds in 6 Weeks

This is the third in a series of posts about my goal to lose 15 pounds over the next 6 weeks, using my Fitbit. I’m going to be sharing videos and livestreaming from Facebook with my progress.

Weight Loss Challenge: 15 Pounds in 6 Weeks (Day 3)

The morning of Day 3 and I’m another pound down!

I started the challenge August 3, 2016. I weighed 145.5 pounds. I weighed myself this morning, August 5 and the scale said 143. So I’ve lost 2.5 pounds in 2 days.

I could only do 5,000 steps in the morning yesterday because I got out too late and it got too hot. I ended up going back out in the afternoon to finish my steps and I ended the day with over 10,000 steps.

You can also see below that I ate calories within the green range of my goal. I still lost a pound.

In a future post, I will talk about why I still drink wine and eat cookies when I am in a process of losing weight.

How I Lose Weight with the Fitbit and Weighted Vest

There are 3 steps to losing weight with a Fitbit and weighted vest:

1. Wear a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00N2BW2PK” locale=”US” tag=”cheeseslave0e-20″]Fitbit[/easyazon_link] and get 10,000 steps a day (I recommend doing this in the morning, otherwise it’s easy to put it off).
2. Wear a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00213DMUE” locale=”US” tag=”cheeseslave0e-20″]weighted vest[/easyazon_link] while you walk. You can start with as little as 5 or 10 pounds. I started with 15 pounds and worked my way up to 30 pounds.
3. Use the Fitbit dashboard to set your weight loss goal and calorie deficit. Enter what you eat each day and track your calories. Don’t go over the amount you are allowed to eat.

That’s it!

If you have a baby handy, you can just do babywearing instead of wearing a weighted vest. That’s how I got the idea. When Ollie was a baby last year, I was carrying him everywhere with my [easyazon_link identifier=”B00RUF2CP4″ locale=”US” tag=”cheeseslave0e-20″]Tula carrier[/easyazon_link] and that’s how I lost 30 pounds of baby weight in 4 months.
