5/30 Weightloss Wednesday: Enough of This Weight Creep

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  As of this morning I am at 226.8 lbs which means my weight has come down about a pound since last week.

This weekend I was visited by a film crew from S Korea doing a news program about the effects of eating and not eating sugar.  Apparently there is a rising epidemic of diabetes and obesity there just like here.  As I went through my story with them, I was struck by a bit of shame when they asked me how much I weighed right now.  Shame I haven’t felt in years!

Last summer when I finally reached my goal of being under 200 lbs, I was so happy with myself and my progress that I felt like I had arrived to the promised land and could rest.  Well over the last year or so I have watched my weight slowly creep up but the warning bells really didn’t ring in my ears until I got to 220 but they were screaming loud when I got to 230.  Today I am saying no more to this slow weight gain.  I have no interest in undoing my hard work.

To that end, I am rededicating myself to doing what got me here.  Although I was always eating keto, I had been eating 2 or 3 meals a day and snacking and really being lazy about my work outs.  No more!  I’m done with that.  Now I will go back to the IF routine of OMAD on my 5 work days and 2 meals on my day off with no snacks.

As for my workouts, I’m going to focus on more weight bearing exercises that will build muscle and I want to get to the point where I can jump rope for 20 minutes.  Right now I can go for about 5 minutes and want to die at the end.

So I am getting back to below 200 by the end of the summer and getting back on track of losing this fat around my midsection.  Having a little extra muscle in my arms and chest wouldn’t be a horrible thing either.  Here we go!

How did you do this week?  Let me know in the comments below!
