Tomorrow is my final surgery follow up but I can tell you now….I’m back to 100%. I feel great, no pain and I’m back into Sharktosis and I’ve got my energy and motivation back. I feel great and I’m ready to pick up where I was before my appendix attacked me and get back to making 2018 the best fucking year of my life.
I’m officially down 3.6 lbs for the week and a total of 5.8 lbs for the month so far and I still have 3 weeks to go #SharkMode. I’ve set a goal of 10 lbs lost each month because I know the weight loss is going to slow down and I think 10 lbs. is a healthy number to hit.
Weighing every single day has really taught me that weight loss isn’t a downfall…it’s a roller coaster of ups and down due to a million different reasons- for example, I was down to 364.4 on April 5th but 366.4 this morning but that 364.4 was in the middle of the week and doesn’t “officially” count because, even though I’m weighing daily, I’m only officially counting what I weigh each Monday morning. I have come to learn that I will gain weight…at least one day…every single week and sometimes it’s a fraction of a pound and sometimes it’s several pounds and I’m OK with that because I know that if I’m consistent and stick with it that the gain is only temporary- it’s a “two steps forward, one step back” game and as long as you continue to do that, you will lose weight over time and that is clearly what has happened….73.8 lbs. down in about 3 months. It does get a little frustrating but I’m working on shaking it off easier because I know what is going to happen and it is getting easier and easier.
Now….today is my first FULL day back- I did the bike and boxing 6 days last week, to make up for not being able to fully workout…but today starts back everything- 1 hour of walking (3 miles) and 1 hour of exercising- bike, jogging, boxing, kettlebells and weights/resistance. I could drop a big amount this week or I could retain water due to the weight lifting and gain…who knows. I know that I’m close to that 100 lbs lost mark and I’m going to bust my ass to hit it.
Remember….Sharketo is all about YOU…trial and error, find what works for you and adapt it to the best plan you can come up with and then just attack it and rip it apart like a shark attacking a stupid dolphin. (don’t give me that dolphins can kill sharks crap…that’s fake news :P)
Finally…since this is MY journey, I do what I want…I’ve decided to “modify” my tracking to only focus on my TOTAL lost instead of what I’ve lost in 2018 and here’s why….there was a week, after my surgery, where I ate carbs and didn’t even try…I was trying to recover. That week replaces the week BEFORE 2018 when I lost 5 lbs. between Dec 26th and Jan 1st…so that week replaces the “cheat week” and it evens out.
I’ve lost 73.8 lbs. in 14 weeks of actually trying and that is the number that I’m focused on. If anyone actually reads these or ever goes back to see what I did to be successful, I want them to understand that 5 lbs. difference in everything…the weeks fit over each other perfectly so I’m removing that cheat week and replacing it with the week before 2018 to get an even number.
With all that set…I’m fully charged and ready to go!
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
