So I am in my ninth week of training for the Marine Corps Marathon. I just hopped on the scale and was pleasantly surprised to see that I have dropped nearly 10 pounds!! Woohoo! I have had little to no changes in diet so far.
I started out at 188 LBS on week 1. So you CAN lose significant weight just exercising 4 times a week. I have not made any changes to my diet. For the next phase of my training I will need to make some diet changes and quit eating the larger portions when we go out to eat. My goal is to get back down to a “playing weight” of 170 pounds for the Marathon in October.
