Once again running behind, so here is the challenge and the update all in one, aren’t you lucky?
May: Weight Loss Take Two
So the wedding is coming up pretty fast, and like every other groom, I’m trying to lose some weight before the big day. You might remember that losing 37 lbs was one of my new years resolutions, and it has been going all right, I’ve lost 15 about so for just through the normal eat less, workout more strategy. I would however, like to get it moving a little faster so I am going to redo my very first challenge, which was to lose 15 pounds in month. Last time I came in really close, and I think this time i can actually do it. I will be doing the slow carb diet from the four hour body. It’s not the funnest diet, but it is effective and the overall health of it is not as bad as many of the other diet plans I have seem.
So the total weight lost during May was 15.5 pounds, which I am very happy about. I have to admit it always bothered me that the first time I tried this whole “monthly challenge” thing I didn’t quite make it, so this is a nice little vindication for me. The diet went well, it wasn’t all that fun but having the “cheat day” makes it bearable. I’ll probably do it for a week more or so and then start slowly introducing more food. I did miss the green smoothies from last month!
