6 completed weeks.
40.2 lbs lost since 01.01.2018.
45.0 lbs lost overall.
9 lbs down this week.
6.8 lbs down in February.
I created a little challenge for me to complete this weekend- 30 hours of fasting and 20 miles on the bike and I completed it successfully and felt pretty amazing about it.
For the first time in my life, I feel like I have control over food and that is also a great feeling. We went out to eat for Valentine’s Day and the wife decided to have some tortilla chips and way more carbs than we are supposed to but I didn’t give in- I sat there while she ate them in front of me- stuck with the program and had no issues.
I’ve noticed that when I warm my coffee up in the break room, I have no urge to buy candy from the vending machine- none of it even looks very good honestly and I know if I want something sweet, I can have a piece of sugar free candy at home.
My wife got me an air fryer for Valentine’s Day and we’ve used it a couple of times and it’s pretty awesome…you can only cook one thing in it so that is an issue- if you cook your chicken, you then have to wait while you cook broccoli, etc…so meals don’t get done at the same time- which is a small issue. However, the stuff we have cooked in it has been amazing, so I’m happy.
Life is amazing and I realized that over the weekend- I never really forgot it but since I’ve been eating right and exercising, I’m just happy all the time. 2018 is going to be my happiest year of my life- period. I feel amazing.
“Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels” is a stupid saying…I still believe that but I can understand the meaning behind it- it feels great to be losing weight but Sharketo just puts your body in a good place.
I’m doing things I never thought I could do and I’m trying to write all of this stuff down for future me- I’ve gained the weight back before and when you do, you don’t believe you ever actually did what you did- it’s a weird mind game.
I had so much trouble getting back on track when I lost a lot of weight before- I would try to exercise and just quit and I asked myself “how in the hell did I ever do this before??” The same went with food…but this time I’m going to have all of the proof that shows I’m stronger than I give myself credit for.
I didn’t eat anything for 30 hours…and didn’t die.
I rode my bike for 20 miles…and didn’t die.
I can do this….I AM doing this….this is LIFE now.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
