Weightloss Wednesday

7/26 Weightloss Wednesday: Celebrating Too Hard!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday! I am a little disappointed in myself because I let myself celebrate my 200 lb weight loss a bit too hard and my weight has creeped up to 202.2.  It’s a little disappointing to be n this side of the 200 line again but it made me wake up to the fact that I can’t fall back into old patterns.

So what did I do?  The big thing was I stopped Intermittent Fasting when I am at work and would eat cold cuts and cheese all night.  Just way too much food.  I wasn’t even hungry really.  I also had chips and salsa one night and a few Halo Top pints.  In short, I’ve been celebrating.

But, I can’t rest on my laurels and need to keep moving forward.  I don’t think I realized the power of having that big goal of 200 lbs motivating me forward and helping me keep disciplined.  So now I’m recommitting myself to getting under 190 lbs and returning to the habits that brought me success.

Wish me luck!

7/19 Weightloss Wednesday: Still Losing!

 

It’s Weightloss Wednesday! Man oh man, what a week!  After the thrill of finally getting below 200 last week, I slacked off a bit and fully expected my weight to creep up over that line this week but that is not what happened.  as of this morning, I am at 198 lbs which means that not only have I lost a total of 202 lbs so far but more than a pound and a half since last week.  Wow!

So here’s why that is so amazing to me.  I did 2 things this weekend to celebrate that milestone.  First thing I did was eat a big ice cream sundae.

Now, this isn’t as bad as you might think because that’s Halo Top ice cream which is very low in sugar, homemade “Magic Shell” that is essentially flavored coconut oil and homemade whipped cream, both of which are sugar free.  It wasn’t bad in terms of total carbs but it’s easily the largest dessert I’ve eaten since I started this journey of mine.

Then the next night we ordered Mexican food for take out and I totally chowed down on some chips and salsa.  Definitely not keto!  But I fully expected to see my weight tick up as a result of these 2 indulgences so another pound and a half of weight loss is pretty shocking to see.  I think the major takeaway from this is my Insulin Resistance seems to be a thing of the past which is great news for me.

However, all of that is done and I’m done celebrating.  I am going to continue on keto and keep my weight falling until I get down to at least 170 and then I’ll see what happens but for now, the next big goal is 190 and I know I’ll get there!

7/12 Weightloss Wednesday: My Body is a Onederland!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!   IT FINALLY HAPPENED!  I am under 200 lbs for the first time in my adult life!  I am so thrilled!  I told my wife before I went to sleep that I was having trouble falling asleep because I was pretty confident that when I woke up, I would finally be where I wanted to be.  It felt like Christmas morning!

So as of right now I am at 199.6 lbs which means I have lost 200.4 lbs.  Wow!

This WLW is going to be a little shorter than most because I’m going to spend some time this week writing a big post giving a lot of the detail of my journey and will probably dedicate the entire podcast this week to it.  So I’ll link to that when it comes out but for now, I DID IT!  3 long years of work have paid off and my weight begins with a 1.  That’s incredible!
