Breakthrough At Last!
Saturday, May 02, 2009
After 10 months, I have finally broken through the 206.5 plateau! I hit 206.5 back in June 2008 and there I stayed bouncing around. Two weeks ago the scale started to budge in the downward direction. Only a little at first, but this last week it has steadily been dropping. Today, was my weigh in of record. 201.6!
What am I doing differently?
I started being very faithful with my record keeping at the beginning of April. My nutrition chart looked like a mountain range. “I’ll be good tomorrow” became “I’ll be good today” on April 16 (see blog entry). Now my calorie chart looks more like the Flint Hills where I live. The peaks are closer to goal.
Exercise. Two weeks ago I started making an effort to exercise. At least 15 minutes of walking a day. Crunches. I hate them, but they make a difference. I started on Friday last. That way the soreness was reasonable by work on Monday. I have continued for a week now.
