Week 004 – Day 021
My first weigh-in was 412.2 . One week later, the day we began the food change, I weighed in at 413.8 Lbs. It is this number, my highest, that I am determining how much weight I have lost. The program goes with the first weigh-in, which again was one week before the actual food change.
Today’s Weight is…
Difference Between This Week & Last Week’s 372.4 Lbs is: 8.4 lbs.
Total Pounds Lost from My Highest Weight of 413.8 is: 49.8 lbs.
The program is definitely working… I feel the difference in my daily activities. I found this week I have not been tired like usual… other than yesterday. I was really dragging by the afternoon, and found myself craving food by about 4PM. Will that ever go away? I hope so. There have been a few times that this first 16 weeks has seemed like a prison sentence, then I remembered they at least get stale bologna sandwiches….. which I would gladly eat today. Then again…. I would be only cheating myself if I did. My wife continues to support me when I begin having these thoughts. I have noticed, however, with my heightened sense of any food around me, that she no longer is drinking the meal replacements with me. She only was doing so once per day, if that, and now I don’t see her doing so at all. Maybe it is just me. It would be interesting to see what life would be like if we both were on this program… and if we would be able to succeed. I am extremely happy that my legs are small again. I had worried that the elephant size of my legs were not going to go away. I am relieved. My legs, however, still need great attention. The skin is in recovery mode…. very dry and loose. The blackness under the skin is from the blood in my legs…. and I hope that goes away sooner than later. It looks awful. We will all press on! Let us see what the weigh-in today shows!
