205.4 lbs was my beginning weight on day 1. My chest/back, waist, & tummy is where I carried most of this extra fat. On the 36th day, my weight was 193.5 (11.9 lb loss). The loss in inches was more dramatic with a total loss of 16 inches. I knew carrying lots of extra fat in this torso area was unhealthy and that needed to change.
Being self-conscious about my appearance was a regular thing for me, especially going around without a shirt in public & even at home. I have noticed in the past week that it has been much easier to walk around without a shirt. It doesn’t seem to bother me. I definitely notice changes in my appearance as I look in the mirror as I walk to the showers at my gym. That feels great!
At first, it was a bit frightening thinking about eating out, vacations, traveling, & parties in regards to eating well on this plan. By asking my Skinny Coach lots of questions & having suitable food backups, the tension around them is minimal. I will admit that it is a lot more work to maintain the plan in midst of restaurants, parties, & theme parks, but I know the payoff is huge and I feel more confident being able to stick to the plan now. This payoff will not only affect me, but my wife, my kids, my friends, & my patients. That is a big part of what keeps me going.
I am excited to see how the next month unfolds & what it will be like for me when I reach my goal. Hopeful & confident that I will reach my goal sooner than I think.
