Day 41 - week 6
Its been 6 weeks now and here are my numbers:
Weight: 235.2 down from: 239.8 started at: 261
BP: 128/77 down from: 129/74 started at: 153/92
Pulse: 51 up from:49 started at: 88
BMI: 31.9 started at: 35.4
So things continue to go in the right direction
Down 25.8 lbs in 6 weeks. Thats a 4.3 lb/week average which is right in line with what DrM says about MWL. My BP seems to be a bit high still but that may be my machine. It seems to be a bit eradic over multiple measures lately.
B: 2 cups herbal tea
S: herbal tea
L: mex veggies with salsa and corn
D: baked potato and sweet potato
Was a good day. Stress a bit down at work. I can tell my body is changing. My shirts are getting baggy and pants seem losser everyday
My dau wants me to go swimming with her this year. Pool opens up at end of May so maybe I'll be down another 25 by then. I promised her I would this year. And I will!
These past 6 weeks have gone by pretty quick. I don't think about food nearly as much as I had before. Eating has gotten boring. I don't really look forward to it as much as before and thats a good thing. I still get cravings for things like pizza and bread and even coffee after 17 months! There are just somethings I guess you never get over the smell of. But the difference is I don't feel the compulsion to have it that I used too. I can easily turn away from it or have something else that will satisfy me. So while my desires are still there they aren't controlling me and thats a much better place to be in.
I don't feel any desire either to stop this lifestyle. I've become used to it. Its actually become rather boring thinking about it. Nothing really special to talk or think about. What I think most about now is what will things be like by the end of the year? The days can't go by quick enough. Change always seems to be slow, but more so when you don't feel your really working at that change. I know I am, working at it, but honestly it doesn't feel like it. I'm in a very comfortable place now and its just waiting for the days to go by to get to that place I know is waiting for me.
