A heavy weekend of physical activity coupled with moderate food intake during a prolonged period of stable weight equals more weight loss.
Yes- the weight loss has been almost non-existent for a while, but I’ve been trying to stay flat and get my metabolism to readjust. I’m still feeling good, just need to crank up the exercise and work hard to optimize the food intake over the next month or two to drive the next round of steady conversion of fat to muscle mass and loss of excess weight. Wish me luck.
Slow progress, but working hard and steady. May go “off program” for a couple of weeks (nutrition only) to allow the metabolism to readjust and establish a new baseline. We’ll see. For now, more book work to do.
It has been about 10 days since I posted. I’ve been flat for the past few weeks, only down a net of 1.33 pounds per week. However, I’ve been ramping up my exercise and hope I can break through the plateau soon.
After staying a bit flat last week, I have some downward momentum again. Oddly enough, I splurged the other day (for the first time in 6 weeks) and actually consumed more calories than allowed to maintain my current weight. In a moment of weakness, I decided to eat some White Castle cheeseburgers and other snacks. The next day I definitely had the stomach ache to pay for my mistake.
The rest of the week has been good for me. I need to crank up the exercise a bit more later this week, but things are going well.
