Day 5: Jumpstart or Jumpstall? 40 Pounds in 10 weeks

Day 5: Jumpstart or Jumpstall?  40 Pounds in 10 weeks

I've followed my diet plan 2 other times before in my life. Both times I have lost about 8-10 pounds in the first week of the diet during the jumpstart period.  This go around I decided to try something different by throwing in light cardio exercise.

Things are turning out different.  

The scale is still somewhat static and has not changed much since the start.  So far I am only down about 3 pounds as of the begining of day 5.  Now this could be good or bad.  I am unsure what to make of it at this point.  One fact is I have pounds of food sitting in my system that have not been "evacuated" yet so in another day my weight may shift down again. But on another side, is my daily exercising the reason I am not losing as I did before.  Is the exercise somehow interrupting the fat burning process? I guess a little more time will tell.

I did not get a good shot of the scale before I started eating and drinking for the day.  So my reading crept upwards a little bit from the day before.  With the family waking up and dictating the morning I was not able to go through my normal routine of weighing in first thing and having the camera charged in time.

Today, I put in another 45 minutes of the elliptical machine at the Bristol Planet Fitness.

Today's food intake:


  • 2 eggs - hardboiled
  • Morton's Light salt


  • Salad with cucumber, chopped red pepper two pinches of shredded 6 cheese mix and balsamic vinegar.
  • 1/3 pound chicken breast with italian seasoning


  • 2 - 1/3 lb chicken breast Seasoned with Mrs Dash Southwest Chipolte seasoning
  • 1/2 lb bag of frozen broccoli (cooked) with Mrs Dash Onion and Herb seasoning
  • Morton's Light salt

I drank 110 oz of water throughout the day broken up in many cups of green tea (with Truvia sweetener and cinnamon) or water straight up and one 12 oz glass of diet orange Sunkist soda.

I hope to see some movement on the scale over the next day or this jumpstart may turn out to be a jumpflop period.
