It is odd how the body works, last month for my full body picture I had the exact same weight loss! That’s right I dropped 4.7 lbs again from last week. That brings me to 382.7 lbs down from 419 lbs with a total of 36.3 lbs lost so far! That is almost 40 lbs! I am only two pounds shy of hitting the goal my parents gave me for Gencon to earn some extra money for the convention and only 7 lbs from my lowest weight in a long time and the weight I was at last Gencon. I am really hoping I can drop the 7 lbs before Gencon, only have three weeks. It won’t be the end of the world if I don’t but just want to have a mini goal to work towards.
This week was a good week in every aspect, but I was still really surprised to see the scale move so much! I felt like this was going to be a small loss week, I guess sometimes my body lies to me haha. I got another wonderful bunch of meat this week from my parents and have been really enjoying the ability to switch things up. I feel like my fat intake is getting a little high so I am trying to decide what I want to do to cut it back, I might try switching to 2% Milk…..but whole milk is so good! I also have been trying to include more veggies in my diet, but it is rough. I end up spending a lot more time in the kitchen when I start cooking with fresh produce, but it does taste great. I have also managed to drink at least 10 cups of water a day, and sometimes more! Water consumption is almost becoming second nature to me, and it really helps me stay full. I have not really had any hunger cravings this week, or urges to just blow my diet. It is really great to feel content with my diet.
Exercise has been going well also, this week everyday I got at least 30 min walks in if not longer and this week I plan to push that to 35 min walks. I ended week three of my swimming program and am now on my last day of week 4! Only 7 more swims to go and I will be done. I have never finished a fitness program that I have started so I am super excited! Also very happy I will be done with it before Gencon. I plan to swim at our hotels pool, but I doubt I can get my normal swim in.
This week for NSV I had a decent amount! I was able to fit into some khakis that before I could not fit into at all, they are 50w! I hope by fall I can go pants shopping and not have to much of a problem finding some pairs. I also hung up my full body mirror and it has been giving me a lot of motivation every time I see myself I get pumped up. In fact I was so pumped after I put it up I wanted to go get a hair cut to feel better about my self image, my hair was getting out of control. I also was able to resist the temptation of Chinese Buffet when my friends called me up and asked me to go, I did it without even having to think about it. Felt good to not even crave it or think much about it. My last NSV is at the start of my quest I had a hoddie I wore a lot to work and it was super tight on me. I put it on the other day and it is now super loose on me!
For this weeks picture it is a new full body picture of myself at my new weight 382 lbs! I feel like I look smaller, what do you all think?
NSV – Pants!
