Tomorrow makes month 4 of my current weight loss effort. Despite moments of sheer joy immediately yielding to moments of sheer panic, I'd say things are going pretty well.
Week 3 of Paleo went well. I lost 3 lbs. Had my 16-week marker at Weight Watcher's today. I didn't quite hit my 10% goal, which is loosely where they want you to be by this point. I'm 2 lbs. shy of that. Not bad, but I could have done better. Slow and steady wins the race, though. This is my 3rd time joining Weight Watcher's, but my first time actually getting my 16-week chain.
I guess 25 lbs. in 4 months is decent. If I did the same thing in the next 4 months, I'd be 50 lbs. lighter than I was in April by the end of the year. Wow. When you look at it that way, it's pretty exciting. Paleo is treating me well. The key is to not get out of hand on the weekends when I'm giving myself a few indulgences. I'm' really working on getting that under control. I've gone a little lighter in the exercise department in the last week. I'm still exercising daily, but my workouts aren't as long. I hit day 121 of nonstop exercise today. I think. Maybe 122. I committed to doing 180 days straight back in April. I'll finish up this phase of things in October, and reevaluate exactly how excerise fits into my weight loss plan.
I bought my first set of weights, and have started doing weightlifting on my own. I can definitely feel the soreness. I bought a pullup bar as well. I'm really looking forward to seeing some definition in my arms, and being able to do pushups! Haven't done a real one in years. Looking forward to the milestones the next few months will bring. I'm now down to the lowest I've been in about 7 years. Looking forward to 'Onderland'....
