Well I really don’t know what to say about these results. I’m obviously happy that I have lost more weight and have done so every week of this effort. This logically points to the successful methods of weight loss that I have adopted with the help and support of all of the kind visitors to this site.
Most important to note is that there hasn’t been a single time over these five weeks when I have been hungry. I am eating healthy food at more regular intervals. I am also not beyond eating a regular meal or two during the week depending upon schedule and/or social need.
Despite all of that I am a ridiculously impatient person. I want to see big results every week even though logic dictates that this isn’t possible- at least in a safe manner that ensures long term success.
Last week when I was whining in a similar manner my sister told me to go to the supermarket and look at a one pound package of hamburger then imagine that in one week I lost nearly the equivalent of three of those packages in body fat. I’ll also rest upon the image of five five-pound bags of sugar strapped to my body to remind me of how much heavier I was five weeks ago!
Bottom line is this… this is working and it’s working well. I have no intention of stopping this effort and will continue until I am where I need to be weight and health-wise. Even after that I won’t surrender the healthy eating lifestyle for fear of back sliding.
If you are out there and wondering if you can successfully partake in a similar effort I assure you that you indeed can! It doesn’t matter if your goal is to lose twenty pounds or one hundred twenty pounds- you can do it!
