193# 29.2% body fat.
Hovering around the target for the end of the month this week. Aug 1 is realistic and doable without doing anything that is not sustainable for the long run as a lifestyle.
I am willing to aim for 14250 as a daily step goal from here on out and I have sustained that pace for well over a year even though injury, vacations, harsh storms etc.
My dietary changes have been successful as well but not as consistent as my exercise habits. I still like Fuhrman's "Salad is you main meal" plant based nutrition ethic, but still eat some junk stuff when it is laying around (my wife buys it for herself still).
My buddy showed up today, but resistant and slower than ever. He showed up! I am still amazed that he is sticking to it thus far. Negative as ever and apologizing about it in the same breath. I ignore the negativity, but confront bizarre ideas. It is all part of the compulsiveness of his illness. Exercise and connections may not bring him out of it but my contribution is worth a try. I will hang for a while. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the flood of negativity. In small doses it is doable without catching it. Families who live with these people are commendable. Thank you to those who have made suggestions and offered support to me.
