It’s been a while since I’ve updated here. I’m on cruise control these days and I don’t think about my diet too much now. I’ve fully acclimated to >1,000 calories per day and quite bland food.
One of the interesting things is that I don’t crave delicious food as much as I did early on. I’m quite content with little 100 calorie meals. It’s easier.
I get a lot of apologies about what other people order and it really doesn’t phase me anymore. What other people don’t realize is that this is my reality right now, I (nor my body) don’t expect to taste or eat a lot of bad food.
I suppose having a hard deadline like my wedding is a great motivator. I’m good with things like that. I’ve never missed a deadline when building websites and when I was a swimmer, my deadline was the “big race”. I like the challenge and it motivates me to stick with the task at hand.
Here are the quick numbers since I started the diet.
- Started at 207.6 lbs October 22nd
- Lost +9lbs the first week.
- Today I weighed in at 188.2
- I’ve lost a total of 19.4 pounds
- I’m fitting into all my clothes now
- Shirts don’t bunch in my armpits anymore.
I guess low calories and a sugarless diet can help you lose weight quite fast.
