Well, I will start with Thank You Thank You Thank You for sticking it out with me for the last 6 weeks. I know some of you were on my side and some of you thought this was stupid but it was something I needed to do. I am so happy with the results I have achieved and feel like now I'm more in the right frame of mind to keep my weight loss going. It is hard to do something for so long and the results be slow. This has been a nice little jump start. I was hard, but very worth it.
I will go ahead with a little spoiler for you. I have weighted this week and on Wednesday or Thursday, I don't remember which, I was actually up a pound. Don't ask me how but I was. I think my body has now adjusted to this program, just like it will to everything.
I will be taking the week off from any plan next week. I will be going back to my standard with a little change. 1220-1400 calories 4 days a week, 1600 calories 2 days a week and then one day at 1800 cals one day a week. This plan has been incredibly successful in the past to lose weight at a nice rate and maintain my weight. It allows me to "cheat" one day a week without ruining my whole diet. I'm also excited about fruits and veggies. Those have been few and far between on this plan and I have missed them very much. Once the week is over I don't really know what I'm going to do, Ill just stick with that until I come up with some new idea!
I have decided to up my weights again, because I have let that slip with a lack of time and other excuses that I have come up with over the past few weeks. I am hoping to see continued weight loss. I really feel like my mind is right for the first time in a long time.
Update on the finger! The finger is getting better. The hole in the nail is actually draining all the time so I am not having crazy pressure build up. I was able to run tonight and not have to feel my heart beat in my finger. Typing is still a little bit of an issue because the tip hurts really bad when I tough it, but it is getting so much better. I am still wearing the guard to keep from bumping it and that seems to be helping.
Again I want to thank you guy for following and I hope you will stay with me for the future, whatever that may bring.
If you have any suggestions for new experiments I am willing to listen. Just let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
Check in tomorrow for a final weigh in!
