I was hoping to write an extensive post detailing the results of the plan I followed June 3 to July 3–what worked well, what didn’t work so well, etc.–but I’m about to go on holidays, so that will have to wait until later this month.
Right now, I’ll update you specifically on the numbers. In a little over one month, I lost 24 pounds: 12.6 the first week, 2.6 the second week, 2.4 the third week, 4.2 the fourth week, and 2.4 in the last five days.
This brings my total fat loss to 92 pounds.
Of course, it’s not all about the number on the scale, and I have experienced a TON of benefits from healthy eating and exercise other than simply fat loss since I started this whole process in late November 2011. I’ll get into those benefits in greater detail in future posts. But for now, I wanted to share the numbers, since many of you know that my current goal is to lose 100 pounds.
I’ll be off the grid for the next few weeks, but I have a bunch of ideas for blog posts to write when I return, so stay tuned.
For now, I’ll leave you with this quote from the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
“For what it’s worth: It’s never too late, or in my case, too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit–stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it, and I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
