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!
