Results After Week Two

Is it just me? Wasn’t New Year’s Day just a couple of days ago? Where does the time go? That’s true with this program. Can’t believe it’s been two weeks already.

The cool thing is that never have I said or thought, “This sucks. I can’t wait to get back to my unhealthy habits again.”

Oh sure, when I walked by the table in the restaurant that had an amazing-looking brick oven pepperoni pizza, I felt like saying, “What’s that over there?” as I snatched a piece off of their table. But of course, I wouldn’t steal a piece. I would just ask them for one. Anyway…

Ok, here are the results after the measuring and weigh-in after Week Two.

Weight: down three more pounds, making it eight total. I guess I should be happy with that, but I was hoping for 10 in two weeks. Not complaining, and perhaps a bit overly optimistic, but I feel like I’ve lost more. However, I have worked out a bit harder with weights, and definitely can see and feel a difference in muscle tone. Muscle weighs more than fat. So I’m going with that.

Inches: down one more inch around the middle, for a total of 4.5 inches so far. “What? Let me see that tape measure. That thing must be wrong.”  Again, I thought this would be more, simply based on the evidence. You know that feeling when you pull on your jeans/pants/shorts and they actually fit? When you can button them without struggling with both sides as you try to make them meet in the middle? When there’s not a jelly-roll-size of belly fat lapping over? That’s a great feeling. That’s where I’m at now. That alone is enough motivation to stay with this forever and not let myself get back to the grossness of the big belly.

Energy, Focus and Clarity, Aches and Pains: kind of boring news here.  All of the great things I reported on after the first week are continuing. Boring news is good.

On to Week Three!
