Day 37

So, I skipped exercise again, my shoulder was still feeling odd, and the last thing I need is to put myself out of the exercise game. BUT something I noticed, and this could just be a fluke or a variety of different things, I hopped on the scale today and since I have not been exercising, Tuesday-Wednesday and today is actually Thursday. so 2 solid days no exercise, I have lost more weight in that couple day period than any other 3 day span yet. this makes me think I should be eating more calories per day. so maybe its time for an experiment. The other thing that has changed is I have been taking Lecthin regularly, so maybe thats contributing to the more than usual loss. or maybe its just a good week. I don't know, and I don't know what I will do whether it be more calories and keep the exercise the same, or no exercise for a week to see what happens (which I do not want to do) , or no change at all and be happy with what I am doing so far.

Pretty good day a far as intake went, just under 1500 calories for the day so I am happy with that. I am totally convinced that if I had a food addiction that it is gone. I find myself forgetting to eat at times and remembering only because my daughter will ask for a snack or something and realize is been 4 hours since I have eaten a thing. I do drink almost constantly, whether it be green tea, water, or crystal light.

My clothing is looser! now I know I have only a recorded 13lb loss but remember I had been doing this for almost a full month before I had the scale, and after getting the scale I am on a 1lb per day pace (faster than that for the past couple days) and if its a 1lb per day pace for the entire time (which I don't count on even though its likely correct) that would mean I am down almost 40 lbs! for a person of my stature for clothing to be looser it would have to be a substantial amount of loss for that to occur. anyway, I am down a pants size. a whole pants size! all of my pants that I have been wearing now fall of of me! even with a belt they don't stay up. I am on the last hole in my belt and its not really holding the jeans up, so time for a new belt! My shirts are fitting looser too. not so much to go down a size but definitely looser. I couldn't be happier with my results thus far. I have to dig through the closet and a couple boxes where I have my old cloths and see if I can find a few pair of pants! that feels good, I got to tell ya. unfortunately I know that I don't have many pair in 1 size smaller. But I have a ton of pants 2 sizes smaller (some even brand new with tags still on it) so I am all set for when that happens. I will just wear what I have in 1 size smaller and the too big size with a belt until then. wow that part of the post got long fast lol, I guess I am happier than I thought about it. let me get onto the menu.

  1. Tony,
    Were you trying to say, you were down a whole pant size??? lol
    How awesome is that after a little over 1 month. Good going. I am wondering if the lecethin is the trick to your recent extra wt loss? keep us posted , if you change things up. How do you take the lecethin? Pill? granules? Weigh in tomorrow. I'm not too sure how things went this week. I'll wait til tomorrow to hop on the scale. You have been changing up your days, which keeps your body(metabolism)guessing, so keep changing up your pattern and you are good to go.
    Thrilled for you! How's wify doing?

  2. P.S. Still nothing from Robyn. I'm concerned. I sent her an email, if I hear I will let you know.

  3. Hey, guys! I'm still here! I've been busy the past couple of days. I'm having a realtor come over to my house tomorrow to give me an idea of how it would do on the market - if we decide to sell it and get a new house that I've been looking at. I've been busy as heck, trying to get this dang house clean. I've still got a long way to go.
    That's so awesome! I'm so glad that you are finally seeing some real results, not just on the scale, but in your clothes, too! I think that if you did have a food addicttion before you don't have it anymore, too. I feel the same way about myself, by the way. I feel like I've put food on the "back burner" in my life, and I just don't think about it much anymore.
    Lecethin? What is that?
    The exercise thing: I guess I just keep thinking that as long as I see the scale going down steadily, I'm not really worried about the exercise thing. If it's coming off without exercise, then I'm HAPPY with that! Of course, I know I really should be exercising anyway, just to keep my body from losing muscle, at the same time I'm losing fat. I guess I'm still just going to have to work on this mentally for a while.
    Yes, wify: will she post her results tomorrow, too??

  4. That is so great Mr. Meatball!! I am very happy for you. NOW that being said please whatever you do don't you dare pull out anything from the old box of clothes that even resembles a pair of Z Cavaricci's ha ha ha ha

    Description: Remember the ones that used to have about belts or buckles and fit like tuxedo pants (I mean they buttoned really high on your waist).

  5. lol no way holly! only thing in there is loose fit jeans or cargo pants ;)

    Lecithin is basically an emulsifier so it makes the fat harder to digest/stick because it makes it smaller. its used for people with high cholesterol as well. its what they use to make the coco stick to the fat in chocolate as well. it contains Choline and inositol which appear naturally in your body anyways. I used the Choline and inositol when I lifted weights, and my father said that he used the lecithin a while back and it helped him lose weight.

    wify got my blog blocked at her work! lol so she reads it when she gets a chance. she is doing well though

    As Ever
