Uh, uh, uh. And another pound bites the dust. And another pound bites, and another pound bites, and another pound bites the duuuust. I’ve lost another pound since getting back on track with my eating. A pound is a pound. Like my high school football coach used to say, “A win is a win.” I will take a 1 lb loss any day. As long as I keep shedding the weight I am happy. I won’t lie, I have been expecting bigger numbers, but what can I say?
This officially puts me back at 315 lbs. That is my one rep max on the bench press. The last time I weighed 315 lbs was October 2007, my reaction post from when I reached that mark last time was one of dissappointment. That is not the case this time. Looking back, I had a different goal in mind. Maybe it’s what led to my failing the first time around?
I think this week I am going to kick it up a notch in the intensity department. Maybe that will do the trick. Eating wise, I have been doing great. I don’t feel restricted, but I don’t feel like I am overindulging either. I think I am slowly finding that balance that I need to sustain for the rest of my life. As I continue to get used to my new eating habits, I think I can hold back on more things without feeling the urge to binge on “bad” food choices.
I’m going to keep it short today, just wanted to announce my weight loss for the week. Hopefully next week I can post a bit of a larger number. I’m aiming for a, drumroll please… 5 lbs loss.
Can Israel make his 5 lb loss? Will he be able to increase his intensity without injuring himself? Will the Dynamic Duo escape The Joker’s deadly trap? Stay tuned next week for the exciting conclusion…
