It’s been a truly different experience this time around.
I have received messages from other people who are in the same boat as I am; people who have gained weight and are fighting really hard to get rid of the excess. It’s inspiring and affirming to read their own journeys.
The Old Dog wants to get back to his “race weight” of 68 kgs from his current 96 kgs, and develop a 6-pack in the process. He’s doing great!
Steven Waddell’s story is the all too familiar one of a young man who was once lean and healthy but kept piling on the pounds until he could no longer shake it off. A near-death moment caused a life-changing shift and he hasn’t looked back.
Today is going well. Just your ordinary Tuesday, off to work, drinking lots of water, taking my protein shakes on time. Going to the loo more times than I can count, but it’s all good.
Paul taught me a technique on how to fight off any cravings, which I am glad to say I have not experienced so far. I guess my mind is dead set on getting through this that I don’t even have time to think about food. It’s more about nutrition and moving fat stores and flushing out excess water from my body. But I will keep the technique in mind in case craving does happen.
Interesting side note: Discounting the fact that this is a rapid weight-loss program, it took me 13 days to get down to this number while on a previous weight management program.
